[nod] Soft99 Glaco rocks.

 

I had switched from RainX to Glaco, and it is so much better. So much less wiper jutter, better beeding of rain drops.

 

Glaco is very easy to apply but it tends to fogs up a little while after the wipers have gone a cycle.

 

RainX is more difficult to apply but no fogging issue.

 

So pro and con.

I think if you want to spend a little more and let the professional coat your windows and windscreen for you, you can try ClearSafe, you will achieve same effect as Rain-X but will not get your wiper judder.

To prevent Rain-X from having wiper judder, apply a thin layer of rain x on your wiper as well.

I bought one of this type of sticker for my side mirrors, but the effect seems to wear off after a few months. Anyway, how do I remove it? It's stuck pretty well and I can't just pick it off with my fingernail.

Can soapy water help? 

 

I recently bought the Glaco Mirror Coat Zero. Works well!

Switched to Glaco from RainX but seemed like Glaco not very lasting. I actually used the spray type after carwash. After 2-3 carwash the effect is gone and need to reapply.

How about try using a penknife to pick up the edge?

So these stuff are con job? Maybe they just spray a layer of water repellents on a plastic shit before shipping it to buyers.

Succeeded with a penknife a few weeks back! Since chemical coating like Rain X also seems to be not-permanent, idk if I'd call it a con job. I only buy these shits at $4-5 a pair on lazada/shopee flash sale, so ok lah I can accept
