Rain X is a popular product used to deflect raindrops from your windshield. Once applied, Rain X causes the water to sheet and roll off the windshield, increasing visibility during wet conditions. It lasts through regular car washes and heavy rains. Because Rain X is designed to adhere to the windshield, you'll need a glass-safe abrasive cleaner to remove it from your windshield.
