    I use rain x on the outside of my windows, but has anyone tried using the rain x anti fog on the inside? Wondering if it really works, or just makes a nasty glare? Mostly need it on rear window and sides..
    My back window always fog up real bad when I get out to clean wipers, then takes forever to clear up.

    tried it on three different trucks. Works for the first 30 minutes then goes to the sh*tter. Also is a pain to get off the windows.

    I tried it last season and it didn't appear to help at all.

    I got the antifog wipes and they work like chit. They need to just stick to making the rain-x stuff for the windows on the outside.

    I just applied some to my rear window on the inside and it seemed to help for a little while, but thanx to Wal-Mart I bought a defroster/ heater that u just plug in. Mounted to the rear post and it works great.

    I was crew on a crab boat once where the skipper used a little Joy soap on a paper towel to do the same thing. I think it worked just as well as the Rain X, easy to clean.

    Yep anti fog sucks ***. I use rain x on all windows and my mirrors too. It really helps with the clean up and keeps the mirrors usable even after a lot of backing up.
