Kind of an odd question but have any of you found one brand better than another? I have always used Rain-X All Season but thought might as well ask some guys that do a lot more detailing than me.



Edit I wish we could edit the thread titles too. Can a Mod fix it for me please. Thanks

Whatevers cheapest. I like to use the regular rain-x- treatment. When you have the windows regularly treated, even the cheap stuff works good.

I use the regular stuff but in the warmer weather I put a splash of simple green in there to help the get the bugs off the windshield. Works real well

Cheap "blue generic" gallons from pretty much anywhere... with the addition of P21S!

The stuff kicks ass. Ya, it's around $14 for a 250ml bottle, but that jacks up 6 gallons of generic washer fluid.

I tried Rain-X wiper fluid for a while but it streaks bad in colder weather. The normal alcohol variety (Record Chemical makes a lot of it and rebranded) evaporates rapidly which is important. I manually apply water repellant to the windows regularly which I feel is a better application of the product anyway rather than just whatever the windshield sprayers manage to hit.

That is a pretty cool idea. I might give that a shot

Which product? There site doesn't seem to show any thing specific for windshield washer fluid.

The regular Rain-X treatment is what I've used for the past 10 years. I just drove 8 hours through line after line of thunderstorms to visit the inlaws and told them I never once turned on my wipers. They didn't believe me!

I've tried the RainX Orange, but about halfway gone, it turned a nasty brown color, so I drained it and flushed a 1/4 bottle of cheap blue stuff through it to clean out the lines. I've only ever bought the cheap blue stuff anyway, so I'll probably stick with that.

I do use Simple Green on a regualr basis, but I've never thought of in the WW fluid, that's a great idea. Gonna try it next time I fill up.

I've only had my truck about 9 months, but its the first vehicle that I've owned that can swallow a whole gallon jug of fluid without leaving any in the bottle. I still smile every time I fill up knowing I won't have a jug with 2" of fluid in it rolling around.

I used the "peach" color Rain-X year round. It has the de-icer built-in but I use it year round with zero complaints.

Generic -30 fluid in winter. In the summer I use distilled water as it dries spotless.

I just use the cheap blue stuff. But I manually apply rain-x every 2 months and then when I wash my truck, and do my windows I use the rain-x 2 in 1 cleaner and repellent. At night with no cars around half the time wipers aren't even needed...

I use the orange rain ex. If it turned brownish - did your vehicle get serviced somewhere? If they add blue to the orange it will turn a nasty color. I put a sticker on my washer tank that says "dealer do not fill!"
