Washer Fluid???

Another question guys, what washer fluid seems to work well for you? I've been using RainX Bug Remover and Washer Fluid, but it's leaving horrible streaks and spots on my windshield. I hope I posted this in the right sub-category too, I wasn't exactly sure where this should go. An early thanks for the help!

If your living in a cold climate then you will need one that won't frezze up on you, but in warm climates where I'm at, I use "ONR" Optimum No Rinse Wash & Shine and use the same product for my giving my ride a wash when it doesn't need a full one and with water restrictions here, it works great in that dept. also.

If you read the thread/link above I think Dylan says the rain X fluid/blades builds up and becomes a mess and hard to get off...best to strip it (rubbing alchol and then clay) and seal it with Adams sealer. Better than Rain X (which I used in the past) as it is easy on and much easier to buff off. And I think it last longer. Wind screen is then easy to clean and great in the rain as wipers are not needed as much.

I just use regular PEAK washer fluid, but I use RainX 2-1 windshield/glass cleaner. That stuff works great and makes your windows look like mirrors.

Well, it seems like every time I use the Rain X, I have to come home and use Invisible Glass so it doesn't build up on my windshield. Now I have permanent water spots in some places I guess. I don't really know what they are. I think whoever said that I should clay it and seal it is right. Sorry to whoever deserves that credit, but I cannot see your replies at the moment.

On page 11-13 in your owner's manual, it recommends that you use Optikleen® Washer Solvent. I hope this information was helpful to you.
