I was wondering if that stuff was worth the money. Isn't it around 4 bucks per spray can?

i use that stuff too and it works great. I put some of the Rain X window stuff on right after that, and it works like wax on your car, hardly have to use wipers anymore.

Yeah, It's like 3.xx something. Kinda pricey but definitely better and so far it seems to last for a good while. I use a microfiber on the glass which doesn't seem to absorb as much like a cotton towel would so you're able to get more coverage. Also, use a towel that was not washed with any fabric softeners, it'll smear off on the glass making a light funky film.

RainX is some good stuff. Just don't apply it on or near a windshield chip. When you decide to get the chip fixed, the resin will have a hard time adhereing to it.

When cleaning glass it's best to do it at night with light shinging from the outside in, so that you can see the streaks. I use a foaming type cleaner (sprayaway) and newspaper, and never have streaks.
