This is a new product to me. I've used regular Rain-X before that you had to rub onto your windshield but this is just added to plain water. 

4oz. treats 1 gallon of water.

For winter use you would add it to de-icer type fluid.

BTW: The price listed above is wrong. I just paid $4.97 for a jug.

That's just $1.25 for a gallon of washer fluid.   Nice!
It allows me to drive in the rain without wipers.
I may give it a go even though I am in Southern California. I do like the RainX glass cleaner. Good stuff IMHO

The bug splatter doesnt stick as bad. Thats the main benefit at the moment.
I've used it for some time now. Started with the rub on RainX.

Today I apply the RainX once a year and then use the add to the wiper washer fluid version as I need to replace that fluid. As for the door windows (or any others) I just clean them good, allow them to dry, and apply the RainX to them
late in the evening when it is cool. My Rig has glass sealed beam headlights...so I apply it to those too.

I love it. Thumbs Up
Update: Don't use!

It leaves water spots all over windshield.
And in my experience it eats wiper blades. Two sets on 2 vehicles within 8 months. Last set was a blade that was $23 each. Somewhere is a review saying as much by a dozen people.

just my experience.
