What was your point here?
The GE Corporation was dumping PCBs into the Hudson river before I
breathed life also, were they right to do this? Does this mean that
you are smarter or more capable of handling yourself in sticky
situations? It means nothing more than that you've had more birthdays
than I have. I drive every day on some of the most congested roads on
the planet. Does driving in more adverse conditions more often mean
I understand that you are finished and probably won't reply. I just
haven't received a good enough answer as to why the aforementioned
chemical is such a bad thing. Prove to me why I'm wrong.
I'm Sorry but I could not resist myself. I to have been using Rain-x since 1980 and it is a Outstanding product to help shed the rain of the glass windshield and windows. Their is also another product that I found just last year that to it Rain-x but this one you do not have to apply to the glass and wipe off the residue. This Rain-x product you add to you windshield washer tank reservoir and each time you use your windshield washers it not only helps clean the windshield but adds the water repellent to the glass and it to works like Magic it even helps wiper blade that have just started to skip or chatter across the glass to stop.... It is a can't do without it product in Florida "If we are getting Rain!" which we are not now!!!!! Rich,,, in Florida...............

I've tried it several times and always got a kinda of "foggy" trail
behind the wiper blades if I had to use them ( 30 mph doesn't blow the
water off like 140 does) or they just plain smear and don't wipe well.
Yes, I followed the instructions on the bottle, instead of waiting like
And it hard to remove once it's on.
(sticking to good old synthetic rubber windsheild wipers)
I agree 100%. Although I got lazy and started to use the Rain-X
windshield wiper fluid and don't have to do the application any
longer. Only downside is rain will not bead up quite the same as
the direct application. When I'm not lazy, I actually do both as the
wiper fluid helps maintain the direct application longer.
I had a '95 Chevy van for a work truck a few years ago. The wipers on it
were worthless at highway speeds. The wind would actually lift the wiper
right off the windshield. I drove out to a customer one evening, fifty
miles, in heavy rain. I could hardly see the wipers were so poor. Before the
trip back I stopped and applied RainX to the windshield. On the way back, in
similar rain I did not even use the wipers! The water would bead up and fly
right up and off the windshield.
I do not use RainX all the time, but it sure worked well with the crappy
wipers on that Chevy van,
You ought to check into the the PIAA Super Sporza wiper
replacement for wipers that lift off the surface of the glass.
I use them on my 2001 Ram since the OEM blades would
lift as well at highway speeds. These wipers are awesome.
It is no longer a problem as the job and the truck is gone. The company had
14 of those vans on the road and between all the drivers I think we tried
everything. RainX was the final conclusion, and screw the wipers as you did
not need them with RainX.
I agree...but there are times when that big ole nasty spot of
bug guts needs to be cleaned off as you are driving down the
road at highway speeds. The link is ro anyone that is tired
of their blades lifting off....trust me, they work superb for
any vehicle. Try them once and you'll wonder why the OEMs
don't have these, or something similar, as original equipment.
I hear ya. I haven't really run into enough snow yet to have
them be a problem....but they work very well for rain. Hopefully,
I'll find out how they perform with snow. Praying for another
2 footer here this winter. :^)
