Car Care Tip: Windshield Water Repelent

Last night’s torrential rain storm, here in Houston, made me think about the time (26 years ago) Dad and I were driving my brother’s 1977 Datsun 280z from Chicago to St Louis (4.5 hour trip, 297 miles). It was raining pretty hard when the wiper blades literally broke off! That’s the first time I tried Rain-X. A life saver! It repelled the water and we made it home safe and sound.

My daughter, who is now the same age I was then, drives the typical Texas “festival” circuit – Houston to Dallas, Ft Worth to Austin, then on San Antonio and on back to Houston… Well you know the routine if you have college-aged kids. Bottom line I,s I’m comforted to know that her windshield is covered with Rain-X. While I always encourage her to find the nearest safe place to pull off the road, based on my experience with the Rain-X product it’s a great back up plan in a pinch.

Car Care Tip: Used cars can mean used windshield wipers. Be sure to check and or replace your blades and apply some Rain-X to your windshield for added coverage.
