I have never answered one of these before. Yes..I use Rain-X down here in sunny Florida. It does rain here and Rain-X does a great job in beading up the water to a point where I seldom turn on my wipers. I am not sure how effective this stuff is in colder climates.

Hi Dave
I use a similar generic product Acidified Isopropynol that pre-dates Rain-X by many many years. In fact, I think Rain-X is the same generic product only repackaged in consumer sizes and sold under that trade name.
I lived in St. Louis where it gets mighty cold, and the generic product is used on most commercial aircraft as well and never had problems from using it.
You will get windshield wiper chatter as it wears off though unless you also use dry silicone on the wiper blades.
