Detailing

Hi Guys. I'm about to give my car a good detail. I use Auto Glim Radiant as my polish. Just want to find out if any of you guys polish your windscreens?

Do the rainx work well? Saw some on sale at supercheap the other day and was quite tempted to try it out.

Yeh it works the best is the little bottle that you 'polish' on but as a lazy farker I just use the washer additive

Its just that I had an Outback before the E91 and it had had what I thought must have been an auto wax job on it. The windscreen beaded like hell and was really easy to keep clean for ages. The blades tracked across it really smoothly. Something I've never done but thought you guys might have.
