Here in the Pacific northwest we are in the Rain Capital of the World. Rain-X is great stuff, it lubricates the glass and the rubber. If your wiper squeaks against the glass you must try it. You wipe it on the clean glass with paper towels, then wipe off the excess. For a day or two it may look smeary, but after that it clears up and your wipers will glide smooth and quietly. If there's one thing that drives me crazy, it's wiper rubbers that squeak all the way across the windshield! Also, if you are in the rain and traveling at least 15-20 MPH then you will see the water drops can't stick to the glass, and the air pressure will blow the water away, it's cool to watch... and you'll need your wiper action a lot less. Turn the wiper speed down & save the wiper motor. Once I had wipers that quit working and couldn't get new wipers for over a month, that's a lot of rain here in Seattle, I used Rain-X & drove 60 miles a day with no wiper motor at all for 40 days. I don't recommend going without wipers -but Rain-X is wonderful stuff. If you try it you'll like it, especially if you live where it rains a lot. Don't breathe the vapors and don't get a lot of it on your skin. [^]
