I have noticed some good reviews on Duragloss 751 Rain Repel from forum members and decided to give it a try and compare it to Rain-X. I was in the market for a new less expensive rain repellent and this seemed to fit the bill. The product is listed as a glass cleaner with rain repellent qualities. I figured it would be a good product to test on my work car since it seems to get the most daily use including driving in the rain. Name:
Duragloss 751 Rain Repel Glass Cleaner Price:
$8.99 Bottle Size:
Directions and Instruction:
Per Bottle Label:
1. Spray onto surface.
2. Wipe dry with cloth or towel
3. For heavily soiled surfaces repeat above. NOTE: It clearly states on the bottle RECOMMENDED FOR EXTERIOR SURFACES ONLY Product Description (from Duragloss website):
Is a ph-balanced blend of cleaners and siloxanes which cleans glass surfaces while imparting a water-repellent treatment. It can also be diluted 4:1 with water and added to windshield washer reservoir. Exterior use only. Performance:
I used 751 with a waffle weave glass towel to clean my windows. The product cleaned the glass really well and left no smearing or hazing. I did find it interesting that his product can be diluted at a 4:1 ratio and added to your windshield washer reservoir. Ability to Clean:
4 out of 5. Seemed to cut through surface dirt with ease.
It it repels water like Rain-X I see this product as a plus since you could use one product alone instead of having to use a glass cleaner and then apply Rain-X. Water Repellency:
I really haven’t gotten a chance to drive but will report back my findings on it’s durability. Cons:
Only real con that I see is that it states that it has to be used on exterior surfaces only. This product won’t eliminate a regular glass cleaner since you would still need a product for interior glass.
