Welcome to my Trinova Windshield Water Repellent review. Cleaning windshields and other car windows can be a bit of time-consuming task, particularly when it comes to dried water spots. The product aims to prevent these spots from forming in the first place.
Ease of application:
The product itself isn’t too hard to apply. There are four steps in the application process which are listed on the back of the bottle. The first step is simply removing all residue, dirt and if you had one before, the previous repellent from the window. The next step is to apply the liquid to the car’s windows in a circular motion, ensuring you cover every bit of the exterior glass. The third step is allowing the liquid to dry for 1 to 2 minutes for each window done. The final step is wiping the windows over with a clean, dry cloth. The process took me no longer than five minutes.
The repellant does a wonderful job of beading the drops of rain and essentially making them roll off the windows, but unfortunately, as other reviewers have pointed out, that when using the car wipers in rain, smears appear on the film that end up making visibility even worse. This means what while getting rid of the rain issue causing the visibility issue, you end up replacing it with a similar issue that basically renders it useless for windshields and boot windows. It’s not too bad on the side windows, though, so if you are to use this, I would say don’t use it on your car’s windshield.
While the product is great at beading the rainwater and making it roll off the windows, it just replaces that fixed issue with another broken one, which is by far worse. The repellant is ok for side windows, though, but to be honest, since it’s called windshield repellant, I wouldn’t recommend it.
I received this product for free in return for my honest and unbiased review. This has had no effect on my overall opinion of the product.
