nod.gif 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.

Has anyone used/tried Mantis Fast Glass for cleaning and rain-repellent?

 

How's the result? Is it worth $19.90 (from Giant). Does it cause the wiper to shudder?

 

Thanks.

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.

Important thing is don’t get soap onto the side mirror and don’t touch it
