Rain-X – not just for the car

Team P R Reilly is researching the multiple uses for Rain-X. Not just for vehicles, but also around the house.


Rain-X is a recognised industry leader in cleaners and repellents. Their most popular product is Rain-X Rain Repellent which improves wet-weather visibility and safety by creating an invisible hydrophobic coating that repels rain, sleet and snow. Also working its way on to the Irish market is Rain-X Plastic Water Repellent, which works much the same way, but is specifically formulated for use on plastic surfaces. Raindrops bead up upon contact with the super slick coating and are blown away by aerodynamic wind flow from driving. This coating also makes for easy removal of ice, salt, mud and bugs and is ideal for windscreen, side and rear windows and headlights. In tests conducted by a major university, better visibility improved driving response time up to a full second or more. At motorway speeds, that’s almost four car lengths of extra stopping distance!

Other household uses for the Rain-X Repellents include:
Provided your shower door is made from smooth glass, Rain-X Rain Repellent will help prevent smudges and streaks for up to 3 months, leaving it good as new after multiple uses. If it is made from plastic, the Rain-X Plastic Repellent can do the job just as well.

All windows need cleaning but Rain-X can postpone this chore by maintaining a clear streak-free glass.

With every phone company focusing their designs around touch screen technology, smudges will become a problem, a problem that can be easily prevented using Rain-X Rain Repellent.

Other similar uses include tablets, mirrors, glass tables and glass fish tanks.

So pick up Rain-X from your nearest Team P R Reilly Depot and find even more uses! Or try Rain-X 2 in 1 Glass Cleaner + Rain Repellent, which won’t just preserve your glass, but also improve it.
