Snow, ice, freezing rain, and frigid temperatures make winter driving treacherous; nevertheless you're prepared, right? But what about your wiper blades?


If they're the same ones that baked on your windshield all summer then you could be in for problems. How do you know if your wiper blades are any good? At no time of the year is seeing out of your windshield more important, and more difficult, than in winter. Quality wiper blades should evenly and effectively squeegee water out of their path in both directions no matter what speed you're going. Soft rubber compounds necessary for wiper performance are always under attack by road grit, the sun, acid rain, tree sap, ice, and especially winter salt. Arm your car or truck with Rain-X Glass Treatment and Rain-X wipers.

Rain-X Latitude 8-In-1 Wiper Blades are the ultimate blades for sleet and snow. Unlike conventional wiper blade frames, the Latitude's beam design won't collect ice and snow, which can freeze conventional frames to the point where the blade no longer contacts the windshield. With Latitude blades you won't have to interrupt your trip to clear ice and snow from wiper blade frames, only to have them freeze again. You can check the presentation of this product here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hqMcVY7FKqk


Rain-X® - Latitude™ Wiper Blade


Another wiper blades Rain-X offers are Weatherbeater™ 22" Wiper Blade.

Also Rain-X develops a line of related glass care products. Because Rain-X Glass Treatment requires the glass surface to be perfectly clean, Rain-X X-treme Clean is the perfect glass cleaner. It removes dirt, grime, and bugs, plus build-up that other cleaners leave behind, from glass and clear plastic. Rain-X 2-In-1 Glass Cleaner not only cleans, it also applies a rain repellent to improve wet weather driving. Click here to see how exactly it works: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yTpfaxI5DSI

My wipers just get destroyed in the winter from trying to wipe the ice away and accidentally putting it on auto wipers. And rain x wipers suck.

I disagree, rainx wipers don't suck, they just aren't better than normal ones. RainX glass treatment is key in the winter though!!

I have never tried it. I have cleaned my Windows inside and out with invisible glass though.

Thank you all guys for sharing your opinion with us!
fruitloops, your wipers got destroyed, because they are not supposed to be used with ice - either use an ice scraper or use your defroster to melt snow and ice.
MBalik, Rain-X Glass Treatment repels rain, sleet and snow. Rain-X works by penetrating and sealing the microscopic pores of glass with a hydrophobic coating, which prevents water from sticking to the glass surface. This causes the water to bead up and roll off the glass.

What does it do
How have you guys not tried RainX????

I use my windshield wipers like twice a year because I drive on the highway all the time. When you're going faster than ~60km/hr the rain just blows off your windshield. In the winter it helps you get ice off your winshield easier in the morning too.

Sounds like that will be my next purchase soon as my OEM ones crap out

Same here. I put some in a spray bottle to wipe the outside of all my windows and it helps to make drying them faster the next time as well. For all of your in snow country, cover your windshields with a small plastic tarp that overlaps into the inside of the car from the doors. I do this all winter up here in the north east. Works every time at keeping snow and ice of the windshield before a storm.

Don't buy rain x wipers, just the stuff you can stick on the window. Get Bosch icons
Granted I live in the south and avoid the rain when I can. I've had Bosch Icons on my car (the same ones at that) since July 2009.

They still work fantastically.

Also, I agree, how have you guys never heard of RainX? That stuff is made of unicorn ... special sauce, for your glass. Don't use it on the inside though, just outside.
