Works very well! Incredible difference!

July 27, 2021

There are a lot of products claiming to clear up foggy headlights. This one actually does pretty well. I wasn't expecting much, but was pleasantly surprised by the results after only a quick 5-10 minute session with a cloth. I imagine adding a buffing wheel/disc and another application would just about clear my headlights almost like new.I also used it on my windshield and again it helped rejuvenate all but the dings/chips from stones.

Rain-X X-Treme Clean best headlight cleaner made

June 27, 2021

Rain-X X-Treme Clean is the best product to make great looking headlights. My headlights were dull and the light beams were very dull and you couldnt hardly see any light come from them at night, but when I used Rain-X X-Treme Clean it looked like brand new headlights when I got done using it. New headlights are very expensive for my truck so I wanted a cheaper way that works and this was that. My family thought I bought new headlights I told them no I didnt I just used Rain-X X-Treme Clean and it worked miracles on my dull looking headlights it made them look new. I have used other headlight cleaners before this that didnt do a very good job like Rain-X X-Treme Clean did. I was so happy with the ending results from this product. This is the best headlight cleaner a person could ask for. I highly recommend this for people that want great looking headlights that have that brand new look afterwards after using it. This is a really great price for what it does,its the best.

Best Glass Cleaner!

April 15, 2021

Great product!! Worked even better than I had expected. I barely used any pressure when applying the cleaner to the inside of my windshield, and the RainX worked perfectly!! There was residue on the windshield from the previous vehicle owner vaping in the car. I cleaned the windshield too many times to count. It just seemed to get worse! The RainX, with practically no effort on my part, removed the residue entirely. I am very happy with the results!!

Excellent at deep cleaning glass

November 24, 2020

I'm a firm believer in Rain-X Glass Treatment, and have used it for decades on car and truck windshields and other glass surfaces. I've found this product, "X-Treme Clean" to provide a very effective and thorough deep clean on windshields and glass not completely cleaned by other glass cleaners.The product goes on like a polish, and is rubbed in by hand. Best results are obtained by circular motions applying the product in a thin film which dries to a haze. Like wax or polish, it is then removed by polishing with a dry cloth, terrycloth or microfiber providing the best results. For older or neglected glass I've found a second application really gives amazing results. Where the glass before treatment may not have seemed "dirty," after completing the process you'll likely be amazed by the clarity and complete transparency of the glass.Of course after cleaning and prepping the glass with X-Treme Clean, I then apply Rain-X to the surface. I use both products on all exterior glass surfaces on my car- windshield, side windows, rear, sunroof- everything. It not only improves visibility dramatically in rain, but also helps prevent ice formation in winter. While ice will still form to the glass at times, it won't have the tenacity on treated glass that it will on untreated glass.You may have by now figured out I'm a huge fan of Rain-X products, and that's true. In the interest of full disclosure, I'll also tell you that I was provided this sample free in exchange for a true and unbiased review, good or bad. It was my good fortune to receive a product for review that I'm so familiar with and a fan of! WalMart (who provided the bottle for my review) had no way of knowing that I am a long-time Rain-X user, and very familiar with their product line.Bottom line: once you start using Rain-X products to clean your automotive glass and improve poor weather visibility, you will almost certainly continue to use it regularly. My pilot friends swear by it for aircraft windshields, and I've used it on boats too.

Excellent on Headlights!!!

November 14, 2020

We used this product on our cloudy headlights. We tried it on the worst one first, but didn't think to take a picture. We took a picture of the headlight that wasn't as bad, but you can still tell how well it works. This stuff really shined up the headlights. This won't work for cloudiness inside the headlight unless you take it off to clean it. My cloudiness was on the outside and this did amazing clearing that up. We would definitely recommend and purchase!

I can see in the dark now

November 11, 2020

I used this on my lights after washing my car. It made a huge difference to my lights at night. I normally have a hard time seeing because it looks like my lights are off. Now I know they were just really dirty. I didn't use it on my windshield because my car has a warranty on it and I can only do the crystal infusion which is applied by the car company every 3 months.

Effective headlight cleaner.

November 10, 2020

I used the Rain-X X-Treme Clean Clear Surface Cleaner on both my windshield and headlights. The application was very easy and the results were immediate. I preferred using it on my headlights as it was a smaller surface but it did a good job of cleaning my windshield as well. Just wipe the surface, apply the cleaner using a damp rag in a circular motion, rinse off and wipe dry; super easy.

Wow it's like we have new windows and headlights

November 10, 2020

RainX Xtreme clean. Wow wow wow! My husband and i used this on 3 of our vehicles headlights. Of 6 lenses 5 came out 100% better. One cover just has some kind of issue (probably on the inside of the light) but other than the one lense we were IMPRESSED. We ALSO used the rain X Xtreme clean on the windshield and side windows of our Ford truc, that carriers our cabover camper. When it rains it runs some of the white camper paint or whatever is running down the windshields. We struggled with seeing out the window on our last couple road/camping trips we tried window cleaners but they weren't a sucess. But i decided to try the extreme clean rainx on the windshield and side windows and it was a simple circular scrub and wipe off and it looks PERFECT like nothing was on the windows. Just this use of the rain x would make me buy it again and again and AGAIN! sadly i should've taken before and after pics of windows but i did get pics on the head light covers! Overall i HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS product AND I WILL buy again in the future! Great job RainX

Makes dull like new

November 08, 2020

I used this in my back windshield and back lights and it actually works. I was a little skeptical but it does work. You do have to use a lot of elbow grease, though. And once you have applied and rinse, make sure you get the excess off when you are drying. I noticed a few places still had a little bit of leftovers from when I first applied but you just have to make sure to pay attention to the details and remove it all. It works! My dull back windshield looks brand new now!

Works great on cars!

October 30, 2020

This was perfect for me to use on our car. I used it on the headlights in our car and it works amazingly. It left them crystal clear and the water seemed to just slide off. No smudges or marks after I used it. I'm really happy to have found this. I used it inside the house as well and it left my clear surfaces so clean. I recommended it to my friends because of the great job it did.

This was surprising!

October 30, 2020

So I am a natural skeptic, I did not have great expectations with this particular Rain X product. Well color me wrong, this stuff exceeded my expectations. Listen it cleared up the headlights on our Tahoe & believe me, they have seen better days. Good- as- new! You need to use some elbow grease, it does not clean itself. But with proper application, you will get amazing results.

Best product

October 29, 2020

Is no surprise that Rain-X has the best products in the market, but this Rain-X X-Treme Clean Clear Surface Cleaner just tops the list. I have an older car and the headlight's cover have basically lost their clear view, and now is like a permanent haze. Not anymore, after using this product, the headlight covers are now looking brand new, very clear and now I get more visibility when driving. I've also used it for my windshield along with other Rain-X products. Highly recommend it.

Windshield and wipers look like new again

October 26, 2020

Even the process of applying it is different and it takes a little bit longer than other traditional windshield cleanser, it works as advertised, we do not have more squeaking wipers on the cars at home, everything looks so clear, if it is used inside, it helps to avoid fogging and after rainy days we do not have more water spots on the car and we really appreciate that. As long as the directions are followed as given, everything works pretty well, but if it gets hard, be ready to work for a while to remove it.

Rain-X lives up to its reputation

October 24, 2020

I have been a user of Rain-X wiper fluids for years now, and find that they always serve the purpose they seek to do: repel rain. This surface cleaner works for the same purpose too. After applying on the windscreen and the headlights, I leave them on for about 10-15 minutes, before taking a cloth to wipe it away again. Clean thoroughly and be sure to allow the coat to stay on the surface. Apply a few more times if needed. I tried spraying water to my head lights and it is repelling water at this point in time like a boss. I suppose I will need to repeat whenever there is heavy rain or probably after 1-2 months again to ensure the repellant is always on. This is my to-go solution for keeping rain from fogging up my windscreen and headlight surfaces.

This is not the old Rain-X

October 23, 2020

It's taken me some time for me to write this review because I have been trying to find some things this Rain X Xtreme can be used on. I started with my truck windows inside and out. It was excellent. No streaks and it has lasted a week so far. Now we haven't had high winds but we did get some snow and when I used the wipers I expected to see streaking. I did not. Next I tried in on my house windows. SO EASY. I may start washing them more often now. I got brave, I have three antique hand made curio's. The glass is old so I started with a small area on the back at the bottom of the glass just in case. It worked great. I haven't tried it on my big screen TVs. If something happened I think my husband would have words for me. I must add I used the Rain-X Xtreme on my bathroom mirrors. It was remarkable how it worked to eliminate fogging of them after showers. Years ago I used it on my truck windows. For years I've seen it in car washes. I am so impressed that I now have a multi use bottle for all my cleaning needs. Now what I would really love is a version my husband can put in his power washer to wash my outside windows without a ladder!

Versatile

October 22, 2020

I found this to be fairly effective on different types of plastic. It completely rejuvenated the solar cells on top of my garden solar lights. They looked brand new after using this and are functioning at full capacity again because of the clarity this gave them. This works great for refreshing plastic and making it clean again. However, on severely yellowed plastic, it did not work as well. The results were minimal on yellowed plastic that was too far gone. Overall, I feel like this is effective for renewing and cleaning surfaces as advertised.

works great! like new!

October 21, 2020

tried this out today on our 1998 Toyota Camry. works great and easy to use. I just poured a little dab on a old towel, using circular motion worked it around and around on about half of the headlight. could see the discoloration disappearing as i used it. did the same for the other half and a nice shiny like-new headlight was there. for the second headlight i tried it a bit different, i smeared the Rain-x compound over the entire headlight and let it sit for a few minutes, then started with a fresh dab of compound , using the circular motions and it seemed easier to rub off the discoloration. we now have 2 clear and bright headlights. works great and easy to use. none of the multiple applications and buffing like so many of the other products require. see the pictures, before and after, works great!

Rain-X X-Treme

October 18, 2020

The label claims it "renews glass & plastic." And on the back it claims it "restores clear plastic and headlights by removing haze and discoloration." I have a little haze on the plastic headlight on my Jeep and tried to remove it with this product without success. It did make the plastic nice and clear, just didn't remove the haze. I also tested this on my face shield on my motorcycle helmet. It made it clear as glass, but did not remove some haze on there either. I have not ridden in the rain yet to test how well water runs off, but with Rain-X's reputation I'd say it will repel water just fine.

New and different window cleaner

October 17, 2020

I have used this product a couple of times since receiving from Walmart. With the RainX brand I expected a quality product. It does the job as expected. There is definitely a discernible difference in clarity after use. I have tried the product on a couple of auto windshields as well as the exterior windows on the house. It applies easy, although recommend using a very damp clothe. Do not apply in direct sunlight on a windshield. The product will dry and be somewhat difficult to wipe clean.

Works great!

October 16, 2020

I received this product to try out and I must say it works very good! In fact, it works so good that you only need a small amount (found out the hard way... so start with less than you expect or you will get a lot of smudging). I have to park under trees where I live so I have the problems of sap/leaves/etc always accumulating on my truck and this works great to get all of that off without a lot of scrubbing (made an old truck look good again)! It has just the right amount of an abrasive in it to work but not be too harsh. I haven't had the chance to try it on my headlights due to a lot of rain- that will be the next project and I expect to get the same good results. You won't be disappointed in this product- it's the same high quality I have always experienced with Rain-X products.
