Anyone Tried the Rain X Anti Fog Stuff

I recently lost my AC compressor so Ive got nothin on that end right now... and i live in florida with the summer months approaching ouch! But anyways I saw the stuff in Lowes today and thought ill ask the knowledgable RF people if it works before I buy it

It goes on the inside and supposedly eliminates fogging of the windows...

Comments on it??

Thanks everyone

I've used the Anti-Fog Rain-X wipes on my subaru. I really shouldn't havegotten the wipes, because they smeared and left water spots....Much rather use an aerosol can or a pumper sprayer thing.

I've used the original on the outside of my windshield many time. Works great. I've tried the anti-fog. But that was a while back. I think it work OK. But not really sure. Living in the so. Calif desert I don't really have any need for them. I had a friend that used it in his boat windshield and loved it. If I remember correctly it was only $3 or $4 per bottle. Give it a try. It won't do any harm.

I had the stuff in the bottle and you put it on like the normal Rain X with a cloth. I loved it worked out very well I thought. Mine had a little haze to it when it dried but it could have been because it was my first time putting it on. I will be putting it on again as soon as our 20 inches of snow we are supposed to get goes away and the summer shows up.

Do some research on a product called Plexus.

I use it on my helmet sheild but I pretty sure it's good for using on glass too.

I know for a fact it's above and beyond anything offered by Rain-X.

I used it on a car I had that had no heat at all. It worked great. I used the stuff in a bottle didn't have wipes back then. But I can't find the stuff anymore.

i use both and they both work great. with the anti-fog wipes; after you use the wipes take a paper towel to dry the windows. problem is solved with the streaking.
now with rain-x wipes on the outside its like a wax you need to rub it off with a clean cloth when you are done. that will get rid of the haze

Rain X on the outside works ok

RainX-Antifog on the inside stinks, hazed sooner, light streaks become visable.

The Anti-Fog came with the Rain-X in a 2-Pac k

Reminded me of Armor-All on glass. So I got the glass cleaner back out.
