Quick Review by killrwheels@autogeek: Rain Clear by Glass Science

Never being a huge fan of RainX when I received a couple of the Glass Science products to test I was not as excited as the new Menzerna Polish. Well this product does seem to come away as an update to RainX and heres the quick review. I have however a third car currently and as such it does not sit in garage and thus products like these may help and thus the test.

Application --- Gel form versus spray or towelette. It is much easier when applying to see where it has gone and after using it once it very easy to guage when it flashes and appears dried versus liquid gel. A little goes alot farther than expected and have to regulate about a quarter size per window application. I used a Pinnacle foamy for application without issue. (pic above was stolen from site)

Removal --- one of the areas where RainX always needed a damp towel to remove all streaking marks initially and this product doesnt. Buffed up quite well with a thin general purpose MF towel. Because it appears a bit thicker due to the gel application its easier to see where removed. A damp towel still helped in corners where overapplication on a just washed car made the product streak.

Appearance --- Truthfully I did not expect rain after initial application and applied in hopes of dealing with our extra car that sits outside 24/7 and it full of condensation each morning and glass unbearable to see out of properly. The first morning it was raining and the typical perfect small beads were apparent. Driving at all speeds over 30MPH made the beads move off quickly with little need for wipers. (other windows not applied had a very different appearance and while beading was not quick to blow away). First use of wipers showed no chatter and the foggy has that RainX always seemed to introduce as they wiped.

Car sat outside at work all day backed in next to several associates car. It was intriquing to look out and see very little water accumulating on glass, whereas theirs did. After the sun came out all those perfect little beads left alot of perfect little marks on glass needing wipeoff however.

Outcome --- for users of RainX looking for something that works as well and a little easier to apply and remove this is the ticket. I was impressed enough to do the rest of the glass on the outside wonder in hopes to see all those perfect rounds everywhere at next rain. Durability is unknown but original front windshield was not recoated while doing rest and will track over several weeks/months and get a nice gauge as car will sit outside 24/7
