|aernan||ok I'ts now been a couple more car washes. I think the rainex problem went away after a couple days of strong sun and some washes.|

|SESRob||As you've already applied Rainx to the windshield, you're going to need something strong to take it off....soap and water or even a window type cleaner will not likely take it off....|

Also, don't use rain-x on interior windows (especially if they are tinted)
I cant say I've had rain-x fog up on the outside of my windows, so hopefuly a good cleaning and reapplication wiill fix it up (I've had success with the stuff on bathroom mirror glass to prevent fogging lol.) I know some folks arent a fan of it but makes worlds of a difference in my book. I use it on all of the exterior glass.

I would recommend using a weak dish-soap solution on the windshield to get it 100% clean and then using rainx.
Be sure to apply rainx indoors when the glass is cool to the touch.

|SESRob||Rainx makes a cleaning/removal paste you can buy. This does an excellent job of both cleaning you windshield and removing contaminants. Does require some elbow grease though.|

|RonMaiden||Yes you can since it will remove whatever is on there just like your paint. I do use Rain-X on all my cars (side and back windows too) and one other effect it has for those who deal with icy windshields is your wipers won't freeze as hard to the glass with Rain-x.|

|aernan||can you claybar a windshield?|
|04-23-2013 12:30 PM|
ok I'll give it a shot. Thanks for the advice. I really like the product too. I have it on my Range Rover. The windshield is almost vertical so at freeway speeds I don't even need to use my wipers. I think the low angle of the focus makes you look through more glass and dirt and imperfections are more visible.
Also when applying rainex on my other vehicles I noticed that if I cleaned the windshield before applying it I didn't get the bet results but if it was a little bit dirty is seemed be easier to see where you had applied it.

|RonMaiden||That coating stuff is garbage and I still would recommend a very good wash,claybar and wax job since there's still contaminants on your paint from traveling from the factory to the dealer. Rail dust is a biggie.|
