    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.

    I discovered that if you squeegee after showering, careful to remove shampoo and soap residue, you don't have to clean glass showers. At all. Seriously.
