Lexus IS350 (Wife) RainX vs Toyota Tundra (Me). NuFinish

Wipers cleaned on both with denatured alcohol. Both garaged. Similar mileage and weather/car washes (weekly).

Wipers making noise and things starting to stick on Lexus. I’ll let you know when Tundra wipers start acting up.

I just use the rain-x washer solvent. Seems to work for me.

I've found little difference between waxing ht windshield with Carnuba wax vs Rain X. I like the wax a little better because once you buff it, there is no haze to evaporate.

I quit using RainX for the chatter reason. After a few minutes of having the wipers on, they would start to skip across the window. Ive just been making a quick pass with Powerlock across the windshield and side windows. No more chatter, and using Bosch Icons

I’m still on the oem wipers, but I’ve been looking at Bosch.
Carnuba wore off to quickly for me on the Lexus. NuFinish must be petroleum based on something.. it’s still going strong.

Last set I bought were Bosch. They worked so much better....

The OEM wipers have gone to crap the last couple of years. So have Valeo....

I use Aquapel. It lasts for at least a year. No chatter, and it does an awesome job of repelling water! The only time I really need to use my wipers is when the rain is really light, like a mist. When it rains hard, the water just flies off the windshield.:thumbsup:

They still just make the sealant. It seems to work great on headlights and windshields. Strange isn’t it?
That Nufinish isnt a wax but a polymer sealant. If it works nicely, it might be the winner since it is the only one that is reasonably priced, and you can get it anywhere. The other sealants mentioned on this thread are around $35 for 16 oz. Thats pretty pricey if you are only wanting to treat your windshield.

I use Aquapel and will never use RainX again. Just Like Crewmax808 said, I rarely have to use windshield wipers either.

This is genius ~ why didn't I think of that after more than 50 years of washing and waxing vehicles. :eek:
I waxed my first windshield today on the wife's RDX.

The NuFinish is still going strong with no sticking at all? I think I might have a trip to the store coming on!..

So many things hiding in plain sight. Lord knows I’ve missed my share. Glad we could help!?
