    Now I use this concentrate-blue stuff maybe it is rain x?--that comes in a bottle marked in gallons of water.It seems to work ok, but I wouldn't mind something better. It mainly makes the rain bead up. The Texas panhandle has spectacular summer thunderstorms-driving, blinding rain with spectacular thunder and lightening. . You wouldn't think such a dry area would have such violent storms. I like Texas, but it can have nasty weather in the summer.

    Good timing-thanks for the heads up review!

    I was half tempted to take a pic driving in to show it working but I could see me wreck and try to explain that one

    There is a bug remover that has a wax in it that was developed in conjunction with the University of Floridas study about love bugs I will try to find the name for ya.
    The stuff is pretty cool cause the bugs acid in their stomachs eat the wax and paint so this cleaner helps to get the bodies free and then leaves a wax behind to help protect that area.

    If you dont have a bug deflector you my consider getting one if for nothing else to protect the paint on the front of the hood I risk it and run without it but wash off the buggies pretty soon.

    "but Texas has a larger population of HUGE SUICIDAL bugs!"

    I'm sorry but that just cracked me up all to hell, okay my friend uses this stuff all the time and it does work. I never get my truck dirty enough to use the wipers, I think I have only used them maybe 20 times in the last 4 years. My dad will get so mad when he rides with me and there's bugs all over the windows, I think he has a case of OCD or something because it doesn't bother me at all! Thanks Dr. Zero for the review, you always seem to find this wonderous information.

    LOL well I agree with your dad a clean windshield is safer when you are driving as well as good wipers to keep the windshield clear so you can see in the rain.
    And yes I guess I'm a little OCD also got to have things just so

    But do you play genious edition trivial pursuit? Just kidding, I am still on the kid's version! I actually have always bought the GM stock replacement wipers, the aftermarket one's never clean right for me. My mom bought a set of Bosch Ion for her Aveo and they are awesome, I think I am going to get a set of those next time I need wipers.

    Thanks for the review! I used to apply Rain-X to my windshield regularly, but I haven't done it in a while because it's a pain. I'll have to try that stuff, especially if it helps get rid of the bugs too.

    Couple of things I noticed vs the regular rain-x the spray on doesn't last as long so if it doesn't seem to be working give it fresh shot and its good to go, bugs it works better when they are fresh but it does better than blue on the old ones.

    I have been using that stuff for about 5 years now and it works great! Living in florida you get a lot of rain and love bugs. There are times I don't even have to use my wipers because I can see better without them. It also works good for getting the bug guts of the glass.

    I to would like to say that I use this product and it will work very well over the blue stuff. I concur with the positive remarks about Rain X. It’s easy to use and very cheap, with the cost over the blue stuff being about a buck. The difference is worth the upgrade. Try it and see the clear results for yourself.
    Stupid Bikers don't last long,natural selection at work.

    I have used the Pick Rain X here in the North East this past winter... No problems. We had heavy snow and some Big rains and the water beaded (is this a word?) off at 30+MPH.. At 60 I don't have to use the wipers.

    1 thing I have found with Rain X. When it drys out or has not been reapplied it will streak the windshield..
