    I use Rain-X on all my windows. Yes my sunroof also. Maybe a bit much. I do it every 3 months. My friends were asking why is the rain just flying off your windows. Light rain sometimes the wipers don’t have to be put on. Follow the directions and use that elbow grease. A shami cloth is great. Clean the windows very good before and let dry. I always dry mine with newspaper. This also helps rain water that would become ice lessen greatly.
    I prefer my windshield cover in the winter though.
    Defroster on, windshield cover off . Wipe the rest of car. Done. 10 min approx. Drive

    I’d be weary of applying the vinegar just over the vents like that…I’m certain you can guess why: the smell of vinegar will more than likely invade the interior of your vehicle. Try it, but be prepared. You will have to use something to counter the vinegar smell. And the fun continues!

      Well unless you’re riding in the engine compartment, I think you’ll be fine. The Cowl vent(s) the engine not the interior cab.

        The vent inlet for car cabins is in the cowl vent underneath the windsheild. This give clean air as this is sealed from the engine compartment. If you did any work on the cars HVAC system you could find this out when the heater box and fan assembly is removed from under the hood.
