  1. 1

    Choose between Rain-X Glass Polish, and Soft Scrub cleanser. Both of these products will remove the Rain-X on your windshield.

  2. 2

    Wet a non-abrasive cloth. Wring it out if you got too much water on it. You want it to be damp but not soaking wet.

  3. 3

    Pour the amount of cleanser on the cloth that is specified in the instructions of the particular product you chose to use.

  4. 4

    Wipe the cleanser on the windshield. It helps if you continue in a pattern so that you do not miss a spot. For example, you could go from top to bottom, or from left to right.

  5. 5

    Rinse the windshield off with some cold water. Make sure there are no suds left.

  6. 6

    Dry the windshield with a non-abrasive cloth. The windshield will now be free of any Rain-X.
