  • Windshield Treatment

    Rain-X or what?
    I don't want some five step process. I'm not looking to spend an afternoon on this, but I'm kind of looking for something to replace the original recipe Rain-X.

    Original Rain-x is awesome. Anything that causes water to bead should work good. Meguiars quick detail spray makes water bead up better than carnuba wax, you could try that. I've used it on nearly everything else but haven't tried it for the windshield.

      Rain-X seems to be all you need. There may be better systems, but I have found Rain-X to go on easy and work really well. Well enough that my wife currently reminds me that I need to apply it again. :D

      Also(or at least when I bought it) it's cheap. I have used both the spray on and the liquid pour bottle. The Spray on is nice but doesn't seem to last as long. Seem better if you wash your car often and can apply it on a monthly like base, where the bottle seem to last longer but was a touch harder to apply.

        I just wax the windshield when I do the car. Anything that won't smear, but it's not hugely important. Worried your wipers might wear out prematurely? Just curious.

          I run Rain-X washer fluid and it works well. It basically applies Rain-x ever time it's sprayed.

            Oh, it's a total OCD thing on my part. I hate the swipe marks the wipers make on the windshield AND it's just so cool!

            Thanks everyone. I've tried a couple other options, but I've yet to find anything work better than original RainX and it is cheap.
