So far, we've talked about the need to check/replace windshield blades and the application of silicone spray; two product benefits that can make winter driving more bearable.
Windshield Repellent (commonly known as Rain-X or Aquapel) is a chemical applied (in spray form or applicator) to your vehicle's windshield that enhances visibility against rain, sleet, snow and ice.
In its simplest form, Windshield Repellent acts like wax on the paint or your vehicle - it provides a barrier between the elements and the surface (in this instance) of your windshield or window.
Below is a video created by our Accredited Auto Detailing location (JREK Autocare) that demonstrates the application of Rain-X to the windshield of a Toyota Tacoma.
Next week, we'll look at the benefits of winter tires compared to all seasons.
