TIP : DIY Rain-x

Have you ever seen people driving in heavy rain down the freeway without thier windows on. If you have chances they are using Rain-x You know how good it is. You can drive in the rain and the water will just bead off without needing to use your windscreen wipers.

However it cost quite a bit for small little bottle.

To get a similar impact you can wax your windshield with Canauba Wax and then buff it off to leave a thin layer on your windscreen. Then add a spoonfull or two of dish washing liquid to the washerfluid.
You will get improved vision, quicker less noisy, windshield wipers. (less friction & wear).

The wax will not last for ever but you will notice the difference at once.
