The Importance of Winter Wiper Blades and Glass Treatment

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:

Rain-X® - Latitude™ Wiper Blade


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

Rain-X® - Weatherbeater™ 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
to see how exactly it works!

And are you ready for the winter?

mr bill, just in case original wiper blades become broken or you decided to replace them, Rain-X is a good option. Have you ever used glass treatment?

we sell rainX at the dealership I work at. Probably the cheapest kind. But I've had them on my car for a year with no real problems. Personally, I think the best thing you can do in winter is clean the ice off your wiper blades. and clean them in the summer. It makes them last a lot longer.

I use Adams glass sealant. Does the Rain-X last as long as this?

Rain x really is a great product.


Yesterday on my way home on the expressway it poured down rain.


At some times you almost don't need to use the blades because the rain x repeals so much water.


I recently put it on for the first time and am incredibly impressed. Will always use it from now on.


I haven't had it on there for long so I don't know how long it lasts.


But it is very satisfying to watch the water disappear from the windshield with out using the wiper blades. Makes expressway driving a lot clearer.

Thank you for sharing your feedback, guys! colodude18, this term depends on the weather and environmental conditions. But I'm sure it works at least the same period.
