I love rain X, dad applied it to the windows, and i also use the washer fluid. Its so great, i hardly ever use the wipers except when its lightly sprinkling. My friends one time fliped out when i used them once when i was spinkling...he had never seen my wipers, and i kept my stock wiper arem so it has that spoiler/fin thing on it and he was like whoa, it matches the car!

I'll ignore the last comment. It does get cold here for a month or so but I am concerned about using it for washer fluid and having it freeze. I like the idea of having it in the reservoir instead of wax on, wax off method. LOL

Chris, Are you driving your car very often these days? Reason I ask is that the washer fluid type of rain-X works better after the wipers are used a number of times, in effect "rubbing it in", similar to the wax-on/wax-off technique used for the spray on product. Along those same lines, how old are your windshiled wipers? Have they been replaced at all in the last year or so? This product works best if you have a decent set of wipers in good condition. At least that'* my take.

your paint should do the same thing, if it doesn't then you should clean that too.

I agree, Rob. Will you come down to SEBF and clean mine for me?
