Yes - I've had a bottle in the garage for ages and use it. Just clean/replace if necessary your wiper blades though for better performance. Gavin

There are other products out there that are better and easier to apply then RainX.

H2Go by AngelWax is easier as you apply it using a makeup pad in small circles, leave it 5 mins and buff it off. I remember you needing to use a water spray and all sorts with RainX.

I use it when I can be bothered!

RainX is just applied and then buffed off too, no need for any sprays.

Ahh! It’s changed over the years.

Previously you needed to spray a light mist of water over RainX before buffing it off. 2002 4.6 Vogue SE - Alveston Red with Lightstone Leather

Was great on my tvr, where the wipers were somewhat compromised, no need for it on the rr

I use Rain X. I applied today before a long Autobahn journey tomorrow to the mountains.
I can see the difference between using it or not. My wipers are good.

Whatever you use don't forget the side and rear windows, it helps with frost and the side windows blow dry much quicker, Oh, and the mirrors and light lenses.... Thumbs Up Pete

I'm thinking of trying glaco after years of rain x use things do improve over time and with new products.

I've used Rain X for years, there's probably other stuff around that's just as good, but I tend stick with what you know even though a bit more expensive. Costco are selling it now so it's a lot cheaper.

Don't forget head & tailights, rear no plate & cameras, pretty much anything you need to see through.

I use it on the inside of the rear windows, seems to reduce those sticky finger and face prints from little ones.

Don't rate their Anti fog though it just doesn't work for me.

Bought some 'Rain X' screenwash last week - terrible mistake as it smears the wiper area and makes visibility dangerously poor at night. Today's job is to syphon it all out ....... 2012 TDV8 Vogue (L322)
