No, not jewelers rouge, but that would also provide a large surface area.
Kaolin, typically, may be used.
The material I bought was packaged in sealed foil envelopes, but I dont
remember the brand name.
You may also remember the old BonAmi product which was of a very
low order of abrasiveness. It was ground feldspar, IIRC.
He just want's to bash Rain-X apparently, and keeps repeating it because
he knows most people know he's full of it, especially given his initial
admission that he has no idea what is actually on his windshield if
indeed he is actually old enough to have something with a real
windshield at all. Were he mature and responsible he would not persist
in blaming a product he has no knowledge of and no proof is at all
involved in his problem.
In my experience, what you describe as a "haze" is simply the remaining
water on the windshield broken into much smaller droplets than normally are
deposited by the rain. It happens with a cold windshield, and is more like
the misting from morning dew, but much finer. A single wipe from the
wipers will remove it. Once the windshield is warmed by the defroster, it
I wouldn't use rainx on the mirrors, because they don't fog up and
they don't get wet normally, but maybe someone does.
I used rainx once and I like it. In a mild rain you don't have to turn
on the wipers, because the rain is flat and you can look right through
But it needed reapplication in less than 3 or 6 months and that was
too much effort for me since the car came with windshield wipers.
If the wipers were broken, it would be a tremendous asset until you
got them fixed.
I'd be surprised if somone put rainx on and it lasted longer than 6
months, but maybe they put on more than one coat.
When mine wore off, I noticed no patches, but maybe I konw how to; put
it on evenly.
I don't know what adsorb means, but I'm pretty sure you can remove the
stuff, or the patches will get bigger until it's all patch, like
