Saw this popular Rain X Water Repellent and Anti Fog value Pack ( 2 x Twin packs) at Marsden Park for $9.97. still got about 50 pack when I left.
Gee if I was a member I'd get some. Appears to be a good price.
I also mist the anti fog repellent
very good Ha Ha
Anyone seen this in epping as well?
Is this a product to be used on automobiles? Can enlighten me please
Yes, works best on the windscreen although it can be used on the other windows too. The yellow bottle is for the exterior and the black bottle for the interior. The black bottle doesn't work that well but a few drops of the yellow bottle will last for a few months. Won't need to use wipers when going faster than 70kmh.
sure, this kind of product is great invention when heavy rain. you don't need to switch high speed wiper during driving.
Should also work well on shower screens
Won't need to use wipers when going faster than 70kmh.
Can't believe this was negged. Deserves gold.
sorry i'll ask the silly question but what use does both product use for? home windows?
I have been an avid user of this for the past decade after my boss at work used it on his rally car and swore by it for effectiveness. But now I recently switched to a new German SUV and when using Rain X it causes the wipers to become very sticky and not smooth when operating and feels like it’s stuck. This definitely wasn’t the case when I used it on my Evo or multiple C classes before but then I used to wash those cars much more regularly (weekly or fortnightly) vs once a month or two now. Is this causing it to not be effective or cause issues? Any thoughts?
Ps good deal price wise. I think I previously saw something similar at Costco in Sydney I bought a similar pack.
I'm having the same issue actually - like the wipers were clunky when they're moving. Wonder if there's anyway to remove that film after applying to fix this
Soap / detergent - that worked for me. Happened with all better wipers. The shuddering sound right?
Edit: also heard white vinegar works well… haven't personally tried it.
Yup shuddering is the word I was looking for. Thanks will try the soap / detergent method and see if it works !
@profeeder55: Yes, that is the same way to describe mine too! I wondered if maybe the car/windshield was just too dry from not driving so much, and when I do, it generally hasn't been raining.
It means that your glass may have imperfections. You need to treat your glass, THEN add this on top. The best thing to do is:
1) Clean with glass cleaner (don't use Windex, but you don't need expensive glass cleaner, I recommend: Stoner Invisible Glass or Bowden's Own).
2) Dry glass with buffing / detailing towel (microfiber 300 - 500 gsm)
3) Apply polish and work in with microfiber applicator / towel (150 - 300 gsm)
4) Buff off with detailing towel (microfiber 300 - 500 gsm)
5) Repeat if necessary.
6) Apply Rain-X, let it cure, then buff it off as per instructions (300 - 500 gsm)
If this doesn't work for you, then it's very likely that it's just your windscreen wipers.
Take my advice with a massive grain of salt because I can't physically inspect your vehicle.
try a silicon wiper blade or use carnuba wax instead of rainx. It takes longer to apply since you have to let it dry and wipe off but works better and lasts a lot longer. Spray on carnuba is easier but doesnt last as long
How many mL/Fl Oz is it?
Catch Of The Day has the 7Fl Oz (203mL) for $9.99 and the Rain-X Windshield Washer Fluid Additive 500mL for $12.99
I bought this stuff from Bunnings for the internal windscreen. It was useless. Didn't work at all.
What's an internal windscreen? My car just has one windscreen.
Your car has both an internal windscreen surface and an external windscreen surface.
Just a warning to everyone: if you have one of those newer (typically European) cars with wiper fluid sensors, do not use this.
There's a sensor within your tank that measures if you have water in it. When you put rain-x in, it coats the sensors and your sensors think there is no water in the wiper fluid reservoir.

This stuff not suppose to go inside your water tank?
This is glass coating. Not the washer fluid. Wrong product. Only the Rain-X Washer Fluid has this issue.
Next they'll say you can't drink it.
If someone goes. Can someone pick me up 4
why do all the boxes look crushed/damaged/opened?
The outside box is fairly weak. The contents aren't held in tightly either.
Agreed. It's really weak packaging. Mine crushed quickly when I got it home.
Had heaps of stock in Canberra, although it was $14.97. Was going to post, but Canberra specific Costco bargains aren't all that popular.
lol wow, i just bought the 207ml bottle from SCA literally the day before.
anyway, good product. works as intended. i did a comparison with the mrs' car which did not have any rainx applied.
Technically expired on posting. Price increased to $14.97 on 17th May (Day of Post).
Hi can someone please help:
1) Can this be applied to rear view mirrors? Will it last long?
2)Also if I apply this will it help to get rid of mist and ice on my windshield and glasses in the mornings?
I need something to stop the inside of my windshield fogging up. This was never an issue when my car was new but it seems to happen a lot now in the colder months. One of the comments above mentioned the fog one doesn’t work. Does anyone have any recommendations for one that works? Cheers
When it happens I usually use air from outside and It prevents from fogging.
The windows fog up because moist air is getting in probably because the window seals are starting to deteriorate. You can try rubbing the inside of the windows with newspaper if you can find any. The other thing I found that sorta worked is to fill up a couple socks with cat litter, knot up the opening of the sock and keep them under the driver and passenger seats. The cat litter absorbs some of the moisture leading to clear windows in the morning. Apart from that, turn up the heating to full, fans on high and have the car set to refresh air across the windscreen.
Thanks that’s good info. I might have to look into it further, curious to know exactly why it happens. I usually crank the AC and it clears within seconds but it’s not something I enjoy doing in winter
