    I don't have the luxury of heated mirrors, does anyone know of a product that can be applied to keep them from icing or frosting over?

    I have used rianx wipes on mine--it has been sucessful to a point--ice storms it doesn't work. But it is an improvement over nothing at all and real cheap too! Wet snow after a while does start to stick but will sweep off usually builds up from the bottom. All I can say is it's better than nothing!

    I guess you meant Rain-X? I never thought of them for snow. I used to use regular Rain-X on windshield, it worked real good in rain, don't know why I stopped. Thanks for the reply, I'll pick some up today.

    I have had pretty good luck using the spray bottles containing the windshield de-icing liquid you can get in Wal-Mart or auto parts store.It melts the ice quickly and leaves a film on the mirror that helps keeps it free from re-freezing.It helps but its still no substitute for the heated mirrors!
