Yup, I'd seen that Rain-X was contra-indicated for plastics.

Tell me more about the logic behind rubbing your King Edwards all over the screen - and that's not a euphanism (I think- or hope!)l

The term is Hydrophobic and you can get some on eBay for what seems a good price. Not that I have tried it yet but certainly am planning to with the large screen we are going to have on Taurus.

Had a guy try and return a mask to a dive shop the week after buying it. He apparently applied RainX to the lenses. The lenses were fine, but the largest piece of frame we could find was about the size of a pea.

Rain-X does make a solution for plastic.

Back in late 70's I had a 1969 Vauxhall Victor 1600cc floor change and the drivers side wiper kept stopping so until I got it fixed someone said to use the potato trick and if I remember rightly it worked.... sort off....

I suppose you could always try Nobbys Nuts if you want to use a euphemism ... not sure if that would work either
