I had bad experiences with rainx years ago and have tended to steer away from glass sealants and maybe just use autoglym glass polish. Recently when placing an order from AM Details I added some AM rain to the basket and think it's great stuff.

The change in performance in Rain-X you've noticed may be due to the change in ownership (twice) from the original owners/developers- UNELKO. They now sell Rain Clear under the Glass Science name as a competitor to Rain-X. If you can find it you may like the performance better.

Gtechniq g5? I think I use. lasts me about 2 months but I do 800 miles a week!

Really easy on and off, no smearing like rain x!

WOW'S Crystal Sealant is good on all the Car, I use it on my Glass all around the Car, obviously, it doesn't last as long on your front screen but everywhere else it's great

If you have used Rain X before then your wiper blades may need changing. That stuff also gets into the pores of the glass or something and can be a pain to fully remove which is 100% necessary or you’ll have issues with any of the better sealants.

Car Pro Ceriglass is the stuff you want to remove any of them if you find your having problems. the Gtech polish is good though so hopefully it will be enough.

rainx? what's a good alternative?

Gtechniq G1 is great and lasts for ages, put it on you wiper blades too and they’ll last longer. 3 layers on your windscreen and 1 on the rest of the glass and mirrors. Screen won’t need doing for 20k miles and you won’t need to use you wipers at more than 40 mph. You’ll need to use the G2 to remove the residue otherwise you’ll put yourself in hospital trying to remove 3 layers from the windscreen!

I do 35k miles a year and this is a must for me.

A machine polish will remove any old residue.
