Funny we are talking about this, but, as an experiment, I used Turtle Wax on my windshield. Works better than RainX.

I caution you on using wax on windshields as glass is somewhat porous & once applied, it can have a negative impact later, though blade chatter, as when the blade now wipes, it becomes a bit sticky to the shield. And if this happens it is very difficult to remove the wax from the windshield then. Only jewelers rouge powder in a mud paste and hard work can now attempt to get it now smooth again..(ask me how I know)..

Back onto blades...I like the Rain X blades as well. They were rated the highest on Can tire site.
Also in this link below in a very good wiper blade video worth viewing !!!

finally had a bit of rain while i was at work today. took this on break. keep in mind, these blades are over a year old and its probably been a week since i used the washer fluid. pretty darn good considering those circumstances IMO
