I have been using Windex as a glass cleaner, and rainx (interior and exterior) glass cleaner with clear success. Does anybody have experience with any superior products to improve wet weather driving visibility by reducing ahesion of water molecules?

Stoner's Invisible Glass with newspaper.

For the exterior, Aquapel is better than RainX but its more costly but it works amazing.

I've been using RainX (in various forms including washer fluid) for about 10 years now and see no need to switch to anything else. If you treat the windshield, the rainx washer fluid just adds to the repellancy where even bugs have a hard time sticking. It seems to be safe for the paint as well.. (but not to be used directly on the paint)

How often do you apply it? I used RainX and had to do it about once a month, with Aquapel, I do it about every 5-6 months. Its a pretty sweet product.

Since I use the RainX washer fluid as well, once or twice a year is all it really needs.

So the choices are Aquapel, Rain X, and Invisible Glass. On a previous thread, I remember somebody getting Opti-Cleen in bulk from the dealer as the recommended wiper fluid.

For cleaning and polishing glass, I'll third the Stoner's Invisible Glass nomination. Windex is awful, leaves too many streaks.

Invisible Glass for me too.
I wish they still made Glass Wax that pink stuff was great and never smeared and you knew you never missed a spot. My mom used it at Christmas time with templates to make snow flakes on the windows.

X5 on the Rainx. But if your gonna use windex, you can wipe it off with newspaper and it wont leave streaks. The only problem is the ink will smear on your hands LOL. :thumb:

Using newspaper is an old trick we used for car shows back in the 70's and is still the greatest way to clean your windshield - with any brand glass cleaner. The newsprint is very very very fine abrasive. I read that part in Sundays Tribune this last weekend.

I've found newspaper to be the best to remove cleaner with also. I also learned a long time ago to buy a box of disposable surgical gloves for about $5.00. Ink on hands problem solved.
