    Anyone use the 2 in 1 windshield washer fluid that has the rain-x in it. My dad uses it in company trucks and said it works pretty good. Its good until -25 degrees. I bought some and am curious to see how it works in the winter and in the rain.

    I use it all the time, it's great for frost on the windows. I use the summer/ bug stuff too. The only draw back is if you use it alot when there hasn't been any water on the window for a while it will get a bit of a white film, but I've used for the past 4 years, good stuff.

    I run De-icer in the winter, Bug spray in the summer. It's great, I have added Rain-ex to the washer tank for years, and this saves the hassle.
    The pre-mix stuff is the bomb, you just have to keep the right stuff loaded for the season. In the fall I mix them and they turn an ugly color.

    I Rain-x all the windows and mirrors. If it's raining lightly the water runs off so quick you don't even need the wipers on.

    I like rain-x. However, I was disappointed in the rain-x windshield washer fluid used for the winter. It just didn't melt as well as other products. So, now I put rain-x on separately as usual. Didn't like their anti-fog stuff at all.

    When I first started using it, it seamed to be smearing up the windshield for a couple of seconds. The more I used it the more I liked it. A few squirts and a couple wiper passes and perfect now. Also a new set of wiper blades didn't hurt either.
