Good afternoon, my name is Tom Brintzenhofe, certified mechanic in Coatesville, Pennsylvania, and today we're going to talk a little bit about how to keep your windshield clean. Now there's a couple different products out there, I prefer Rainex. They make a washer fluid additive, and it's real simple to use. This container right here will treat up to four gallons. You only have to really do is put about a quarter of this bottle right into your windshield washer tank, and it's about a pint goes in there. Not much more than that. And as you can, as you get stuff on your windshield, you can use that and it will help it keep it clean. Rainex works really awesome, it puts like a film on top of your windshield and the bugs will pretty much wipe right off. Now this, this type of Rainex right here goes right on the windshield. I'll flip that around so you can see it. The only thing you'll need here is to put it on. Just wipe it on there until you get a nice little haze. It'll dry with a little haze on it. And unfortunately, if you don't get that haze off it can get a little ugly when you're driving down the road. The best thing to use is a wet cloth. Just wipe right back over that. You might have to go over it a few times. And when you get done wiping it off once or twice, just flip over to the other side. And wipe that off. It'll put a nice little film on there for you. So when the bugs hit it, you get dirt on it, just hit your little washers and it wipes it right off. It usually lasts about a week or two, so if you don't mind spending the time, it's a great product, it'll help you out and keep your windshield clean.
