I tend to buy what ever is on sale for the best price and I've never seen Rain X washer fuid for .99 cents so I've never bought it. Maybe one day, I'll have lash and Don'* money and I'll treat myself to a couple of jugs.

hehehe - I bought 8 case of winshield washer fluid when it was on sale for 50cents a gallon a few years ago.

I get hte same RainX effect with Invisible Glass window cleaner; I didn'tlike the RainX washer fluid but the Wipe on stuff works awesome too.

Well, so did I Frank. Until Don mentioned it and I saw that it would be only $0.80 more to get a much better product.

How much would you pay to see better in the rain? I call it worthy, myself.

I'm in the club ... usually during the winter.

Some weeks I go through too much fluid to spend the extra.

Lol!

I DO know what you mean.

For a while, Liz had a habit of reminding tailgaters they were too close by hitting the windshield spray for a while. At speeds over 45 mph, the fluid lifts up and over the car and deposits the now dirty fluid on their cars. This works especially well if the tailgater has a newer or clean car. However, it does use up a lot of fluid.

Since she'* mellowed somewhat, she doesn't "use" as much cleaner.

I love Rain X too. Doesn't last long though if you use the wipers much. I just finished the first coat of sealant on the car for winter yesterday, and when I do the second coat tonight I'm going to do it on the windows and see if it will last longer. I've heard a lot of people using sealant on the windows with good results.

Laugh all you want but do you know what a body shop told me to do that worked just as great as Rain X and about 90% less cost. Use everyday car was on the windshield. I put it on the entire windows front, back sides. The better the quality the longer it lasts. When it rains or snows the water just beads off the window. On a $2.00 can of wax (purchased on sale) it last several months. And the can of wax last about 5 years.

Ok, go ahead and laugh, but the people that I've told tried it and never laughed at the suggestion again.
