Default Rain X Wash & Wax

I saw an ad in a magazine for Rain X Car Wash and Rain X Wax.
I was wondering if anyone has seen this, or used it?

The Mr Clean thingy that I got (and I would assume the RainX one as well) doesn't bead water. It using the same kind of stuff in the soap as the dishwasher detergents do to help it sheet off while drying by removing impurities.

Wax is a whole 'nother process.

I'll have to try the instant wash mr Clean system, I saw a big display at Canadian Tire but thought is was spendy for a new product ($29).

I'm actually more interested in the Rain X WAX..... I'd be really curious to see how well it beads the water and keeps the dirt off. I've searched high/low locally here but no joy. Must be a new product or something.

It runs about US$20 here, but I got mine on sale for 18, and had the $5 coupon they mailed me...

I think I saw that at WalMart when I was picking up my Meguiars Gold. Didn't notice price or anything, tho. But condiering the company has been around for a while, I'd trust them for at least a try...
