RainX is a very good cleaner on a lot of things.

There is a similar product out there called Aquapel that's just as good, but lasts a lot longer than Rain-X. Aquapel is way better to use if you live somewhere that gets huge amounts of rain like South Florida.

I've used both Rain-X and Aquapel as well. Both work well but, as zoomzoom3 mentioned, Aquapel does seem to last longer.

I've used wax, and it works just as well.

we too have been using Rain x on the windshields for about 20 years as well as the windshield washer fluid. Works excellent.

Agree with all positive comments on rainX. Another good use is on verticle rear windows like my Jeep Cherokees, wagon and Suburban. The RainX keeps the dirt from sticking and the window stays clear when driving in the rain.

I have used the bottle application in the past and had good results.

Wife bought a gallon of the washer bottle type and I do notice the glare a bit more.

It's annoying.

I'll go back to the wipe on / off method.

RainX rain repellent works great. I use it on all the windows on my S2000; that combined with Meguiar's NXT wax is wonderful for the Bay Area's infamous fog. Everything just beads up and the wind takes care of the rest!

However: their interior anti-fog is worthless. It didn't prevent fogging, in fact it was all smudgy and I had to use a cleaner to get it all off because I could barely see at night!
