    Default Rain-X window protectant

    Free SHipping @ $299
    I had a request today from a customer that wants her windows cleaned and Rain-X applied. I have never applied Rain-X or any other window treatment and was wondering what would be best to use, easiest to apply and how much to charge per standard window.

    Any help is much appreciated!!!

    I've heard that Rain-X is the easiest to apply but I'm not sure how long it will last. Ettore has a good system called Glass Guardian that they say will last anywhere from 1-2 years depending on the frequency of cleanings.

    Glass Guardian is supposed to be the best but it is labor intensive. and have private label glass protection products that wash on and squeegee off.

    I've been using Rain-X mixed in my cleaning solution until last week, when I ordered my first WFP.
    Just throw a few drops in there and you're done.
    Don't wanna start a debate like the titan-glass-gleam-4.html">GG4 vs Dawn but it seems to help to keep the windows cleaner a little longer, and that's one of the reasons why I decided to "discontinue" it use.
    Used to charge like $1/window as an addon, but if they didn't wanna pay for it I used it anyway, I believe that makes my job easier next time.

    I often refer to Rain-X sometimes as examples, but never used it. Hum... I'll give it a try

    I offer it as a Hydrophobic additive, and tell them that "is like the Rain-x that you use on your windshield".

    Give it a try, $6 a bottle and last long time, not a lot to loose there.

    Can the Rain-X that you apply to your windshield be applied to house windows? Or is there some other form of it made specifically for house windows?

    I have heard of using rain-x before. But just thought it was a scam. I guess I shall re-think this observation.

    Rain x works ok but not for long in my area. only a few rains or so. sani shield is about the same. I like A-maz. One thing to watch out for is how much you put on. A little does the trick. To much and you will be buffing on it forever!
