Great windshield tip courtosy of Jeff (oldwrench1960)
Written by wbpc800 on 6/28/2012 at 06:58 pm

Some googleing discovered a reply to a users question from Rifle saying that
their screens are acrylic and that Rain X is fine. Also several users saying
they have used it for years.

> Does Rifle state that it is okay to use "original formula Rain X" on their
windshields??? Rain X will cause plastics to yellow,? should not be used on most
motorcycle windshields, face shields, etc.? I have found that Pledge does a
really good job of cleaning a windshield.? I usually try to mist the windshield
with water, then spray on Pledge, let it set for a short while and most bugs
wipe right off.? Would most likely work really well after the wet T-shirt.? I
have been told that a wet towel works really well also.

> The 100 mile evening ride home through the woods with my new Rifle left the
usual assortment of bug splatter. Jeff gave me this tip that is so brilliant it
may be standard practice here but I didn't know it.
> Take a clean 100% cotton T shirt, shake it to make sure there is no particles
in it, then get it soaking wet. Now, gently lay it over your windshield and
smooth it out. Go relax for about a half hour or so. (I just did about an hour
or so.) When you return the bugs simply dab off. No rubbing, no scratching!
> When dry and clean a treatment of original formula Rain X makes the whole
thing work much better.? (I assume there was Rain X on the rifle.) It was so
easy that I am going to continue that practice. Jeff finishes with Novus 1. I
will finish with Plexus until my can runs out and then likely make the switch to
Novus 1 as well.
> What I do know was this was the easiest windshield cleaning I have ever done.
I also know that this "used" rifle appears as new so Jeff must have something
> Hope you enjoy this tip as much as I have.
