Rain-X® Waterless Car Wash & Rain Repellent has been awarded the top honors for the Car Care category.

“Receiving the Product of the Year award for our Rain-X® Waterless Car Wash & Rain Repellent product is a great honor, and the fact that the award was determined by consumers makes the recognition even more significant,” said Cheryl Petrishin, Rain-X® Brand Manager. “This award is truly a testament to the innovative work the Rain-X® team does on a daily basis to develop products that are game changing in convenience and reliability.”

The Rain-X® team spent two years developing, testing and perfecting the Rain-X® Waterless Car Wash & Rain Repellent to provide consumers a truly differentiated car care product. This revolutionary product cleans entire vehicles without water or a bucket and applies the Rain-X proprietary water repelling coating to all surfaces, including glass.

Rain-X® has been a past recipient of the “Product of the Year” award for its Rain-X® Latitude Water Repellency Wiper Blades in 2017.
