Rain X saved my window o.o

the only thing i dont like about rainX is the glare under light.

i end up just rainX'ing the rear window, and the area's that the wipers dont catch.

I do that too. I remember there was a thread about frosting windows last year. Actually there's a thread like this every year.

you win yourself a fail!

I used rain x on my windows, after awhile, it started streaking like a muthafucka, and I had purchased new michelin wipers from Costco. FTMFL

I use the Rain-X windshield wiper fluid sold at Canadian Tire. Works like a charm.

I parked my car outside at the back of my house where I have a cover, my windshield didnt frost over. My dad's car parked at the front of the house on the street and it did frost over.

You don't need RainX or fancy washer fluids that cost more than normal washer fluids. If possible just park under something. (Im surprised it works too)

well our school parking lot doesn't have any sort of cover at all
so i guess applying rain x would be better than scraping frost off my window with freezing hand

There are of course other ways out of everything, it depends on ur own liking, using different washer fluids or rain x isn't fancy, just a way of how we do things our own way
