    I don't think we have Rainex in Ireland.Is it a window cleaner?Thanks so much for the amazing tips

      It is normally used on the windshield of a car to keep the rain from streaking. Your auto store would know what it’s called there. By the way I was born in Ireland too.

    Can I use the rain x on my porcelain tile on my shower walls?

      I would check with the manufacture. The back of my bottle states that it's only for glass and not to spray on anything with paint/coating. Sometimes tile installers will put a sealant over the tile so I personally wouldn't want the RainX to remove the sealant :)

    I use a 50/50 solution of rubbibg alcohol/water that I put in a garden pump sprayer (walmart $4.88). Pump up pressure and Spray shower every couple of days and squeegie. The pump makes a fine mist. Have used this for years. Tile and glass is very clean.

    I would NOT use Rain X! It is full of chemicals and is made to repel water on your windshield and maybe headlights! When used properly, it leaves a thick buildup on the windshield and on your windshield wipers.

    Does this sound like something you want around your BODY and CHILDREN'S bodies?

    Not me!

    There are shower sprays that can be used either iver the counter or homemade that help slow the scum... you just spray it after your shower.
