Just started using "Rainex" on the windscreen of my jeep - great stuff - didn't have to use my hand operated windsrceen wipers once, the last time I took it out in the rain.

Does anybody else use this stuff -because if not I can highly recommend it!

Cheers,

Dickie T

Used it for a few years and can concur - good stuff. They sell it in wipes too - very handy for refreshing the stuff.

Sounds excellent, I am going to try and get hold of some of this, thanks for the "heads up" Dickie.

Had enough of having to manual use my wipers :lol: :lol:

You can get the stuff in Halfords, - you still get rain drops on your windsreen, but they just run straight off. It seems to work very well on jeeps - as they are as aerodynamic as a wardrobe :wink:

Cheers,

Dickie T

Hi all,

I use Rainex on my Jeep too - it's very good, but i've found that you do need to re-apply it with some "regularity"...

Oh, and Bilko...I understand what your on about mate - potatoes have much the same effect as Rainex (seriously)...but it's not quite so cristal clear when applied, and lasts for an even shorter time...'king site cheaper to buy though!!!

Regards - "Minty"

Well. i bought it and it came in very handy on the trip to Detling. Hardly had to use my wipers. Think a tub of the wipes will be living in the tool box from now on.

Can also highly recommend the Rainex line of anti-mist wipes too for the inside of the screen and rear view mirror. Brilliant stuff!
