Re: Where NOT to apply rain x(windshield)

If you have glare on your windshield then you did it wrong...... I've been using Rain-X since I could drive with no problems.

Re: Where NOT to apply rain x(windshield)

I just use the rain-x glass cleaner. Works just as well, and it's easier to apply.

I think we're talking about different products.

The rain X I hate so much is the stuff you pour into your windshield washer reservoir. Streaks and smears and is basically garbage.

I have no experience with the spray bottle stuff, though I use either Invisible Glass or Windex Auto with no ammonia,

Talking about the windshield washer stuff is worst lol. I use both the washer and the stuff that comes in the bottle (the non spray bottle) with no problems.

Re: Where NOT to apply rain x(windshield)

Rain X is one of those urban legends, just way too much maintenance for what its worth. A decent set of OEM wiper blades swapped out every 6 months or so is much more effective approach for streak free windshields that you can see through at night. What some see as hate here may simply reaction to the RainX marketing hype and the RainX trolls (marketers) that stop into these these forums now and again .

Re: Where NOT to apply rain x(windshield)

I am not a rain x troll, but I ensure I have it for long trips. Love it when it when I don't have to use the wipers during a down pour. You have a lot better visibility than wipers. Use it when I fly too, wayyyyyy better than the wipers. It does take a little maintenance to keep it where it is worth it. Will say though, I have yet to put it on the Cherokee.

Re: Where NOT to apply rain x(windshield)

i don't understanding the smearing issues? i've used it for over 20 years on a lot of different cars - zero issues. maybe your wipers suck.

It works great for me..best if you put it on when the cars brand new. What makes it work? Watch the videos on their website. Glass it porus. In the right sunlight you can see what looks like millions of tiny dots..rainx fills in those dots keeping water from sticking.......anyway works and I'm not a troll

Re: Where NOT to apply rain x(windshield)

I thought when you use RainX you don't use your wipers? Am I missing something?

Rain x works great when its light rain and you don't want to use your wipers. Also in heavy rain when your wipers are undermatched with the down pour.

Re: Where NOT to apply rain x(windshield)

Anyone use Aquapel? Some of the tests I read indicated it may be better than Rain-X but when I tried it on an MB sedan I wasn't convinced. Ok in the rain but seems the rest of the time driving into the sun I always had streaking/hazing that I chased around the windshield. Used Rain-X years ago and like some here say, if you apply properly and remove after application according to instructions I never had any problem with it.
