    Longest windshield water repellent

    I can't stand RainX. Every time I use it I get a foggy windshield or it lasts for a week or the first rain, whatever is first. I've tried liquid, washer fluid additive and their fancy wiper blades. DONE !
    Is there anything else out there. I've seen Stoners that has an additive in their cleaner, but that's all I've come across and need a solution. Somewhere I read you can polish or wax the windshield by hand ?

    Stoners works about as well as RainX. It goes on much easier, tho. By the way, it's awesome for cleaning iPads and smartphones!

    You might also consider Collinite 845. I used it last winter on my windshield and it worked better than any other product I've tried.

    I agree that rain-x is lame. Try Aquapel. I get around 6 months performance and that's all I need. I apply once each fall and again in the spring and I'm good to go. Works great and lasts forever. No wipers needed at highway speeds and keeps vision clear. Great product.

    Go the coating route. Optimum Opti-Glass and maintain with opti glass clean & protect.

    Great combo.

    I’m testing out CarPro FlybyForte at the moment and maintaining with ech20 is also working out very well.

    Honestly griot's glass sealant is pretty good. Easy to use and I get 2 or 3 months out of it and it's really easy to use.

    I use Duragloss 501 on windows.

    It will remove traffic film buildup like nothing else, and the rain dances off the window for months.

    The Pinnacle Black Label Windshield coating has lasted a very long time for me on my own car. I believe the 2 year durability claims. However, this coating is very susceptible to water spotting.

    Re: Longest windshield water repellent

    thanks, i never knew so many products were out there. I think I am going to give Aquapel a try. I read a lot of great things about it, although its more than a tradition spray like rain-x it seems to have the best reviews for the price.
