As of this writing, we haven’t seen RainBrella in stores.
RainBrella (marketed as “Wipe New RainBrella”) is advertised as an “umbrella” for your car, as it supposedly repels water and mud from your windshield. It is applied by simply wiping it on, then wiping it off.
The package contains two one-time use wipes. The fact that it comes in disposable wipes is probably a feature that will divide consumers regarding the usefulness of RainBrella. The convenient pouches are a great way to store these for when you need them, especially if you’re on the road. They also allow you to easily apply the product without the need to use a towel.
There are those, however, that may feel that the amount of ingredients they get for the price may not seem appropriate. Those are the consumers who may not feel that RainBrella is a good fit for them.
Whether or not two disposable pouches for $15 are a better deal than a $5 bottle of Rain-X is where some consumers will probably split on this product, even if RainBrella does last longer.
RainBrella should work as well or better than similar glass treatments, although you will only get two uses out of the box.
The ingredients of RainBrella include isopropyl alcohol, methyl ethyl ketone, and inorganic acids.
RainBrella is clearly aimed at competing against Rain-X, which is a popular glass treatment product that can be found online and in stores for about $5. The Rain-X Water Repellent Wipes are perhaps the closest we found to RainBrella, and can be found for about $5 each.
