    PAM cooking spray works ok too. So does Pleadge furniture polish believe it or not.

    I was using Simoniz. When I got my new truck and plow, I had the truck polished by a detailer who will also be coating the front of the plow with the same stuff. I don't know what it's called, but it sure put a tough coat on the truck that makes water just slides right off. Kind of wanting to see how it does with snow.

    Can we say FLUID FILM? Use it on everything and love it. I don't know if it makes my plowing any faster but it seems to cut down on corrosion and wear. Also great for protecting battery terminals and electrical terminals as it doesn not conduct electricity or static electricity.

    my $0.02

    Rain-X would probably be the best for poly plows.

    Just sprayed mine this week with Fluid Film. Now just have to wait for some more snow to see how it works. Monday & Tuesday, the snow stuck terrible, so cleaned up the blade and sprayed it on Wednesday.
