cheap anti fog tip
put a very small drop of washing up liquid on your finger then rub it well on to the glass until it become a film  ;) it will get look smeary then just get a dry clean cloth and polish ;) :)

don't believe me ??? try this trick ;) get a mirror and breath on it ;) it will fog up ;) now do the above then repeat the breathing test on mirror no fog ;0 ;) :)

We used to use that on the inside of our motorcycle visors when we were younger (before commercial anti-fog products were commercially available).........but it doesn't last long, you'd have to repeat the process every other day or so or the washing-up liquid lost it's effectiveness.

Another option was to use a raw potato........cut a potato in half and rub the starch into the visor.....works like the washing-up liquid, but doesn't last long either.

I've seen and used the rain x washer fluid, tip, don't add it to normal washer fluid as rain x is washed off by normal screen wash after a time

I've been out and re-coated my car windows today with Rain-X, as over the last few months it has lost it's effectiveness.

I was quite surprised to see I first coated my screens in December 2012, that's 18 months ago. :o

In all reality, that coating of Rain-X has lasted for well over a year before it's performance dropped off, much longer than I was expecting. 8)

Do the wipers not "rub" it off the screen over a period of time Gambo?

I suppose it does over time........but once you have applied Rain-X you hardly need to use your wipers.

You do get some strange looks going down the motorway in a torrential downpour without your wipers on, when everyone else's are going furiously. ;D

when i used to work in the window game our firm used to use stuff called ryetec a self cleaning product for windows and charge a fortune to apply it to your windows...at the end of the day white vinegar does the job just aswell if not better.

I'll check the local factors for that, but if I can't source any, I'll be scouring ebay for it. ;)
