How to Remove Rain X

by Lillian Downey

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.


Wipe away any dirt or grime on the windshield with a wet towel.


Dampen your sponge, then apply a liberal amount of cleaner to the sponge.


Begin in one corner of your windshield and scrub lightly, using small, circular motions. Dampen and add more cleaner to the sponge, as needed, until you've scrubbed the entire windshield.


Rinse off the windshield. Repeat this process as needed.
