RAIN-X Washer Fluid

I have completely ran out of window washer fluid and I am thinking about getting the 2-1 RAINX WASHER FLUID but before that I want to make a topic only about this discussing the good and bads about this.

I've heard and read in many topics that RAINX washer fluids is very hazard towards car paint if landed on? Or it can damage the window? When the liquid shoots out you cant help it but it will always hit the hood thats in between the hole ports and the window and it will also hit the body edges around the window so what does it mean?

Just in case nobody knows which one I'm talking about click here.

p.s. I already have the RAIN-X LATITUDE SWIPERS installed so maybe this will help it

I've seen it and its like 5+ pages of nonsense going back and forth on different opinions. I really want hard facts now if its hazard towards paint, glass, resevoir, and the pump. Straight up answers without any sidetracking you feel me?

I hvae used it in my focus since day 1 and also my dad used it in the truck i got at 16 for over 10 years before it was passed on to me. It never damaged the paint on the truck. Also a local automated car wash "the really nice one" even has a rainx treatment option for your entire vehicle

Yet luxury cars suggest it lol
Ford's reasoning is probably about like oil and coolant. they want you to only use "motorcraft"

Just my opinion... used it for the past 17 months in our 2011... love it... as well as the glass treatment... I do tend to keep a coat of wax on the paint... about 6 times a year.
