Keeping Your Family Prepared and Safe on the Road with Rain-X {Wiper Blades and Glass Cleaner Giveaway}

While I have all kinds of concerns (some warranted, some not) when my kids head off to school each day, I try to remind myself to simply focus on the things that I can control and not fret about those that I cannot.

Work to ensure that my kids get a good night's sleep and a filling, healthy breakfast so that they're ready to take on the day? Check. Protect them from the harsh, cutting words of bullies or mean girls? Deep breath, let's just cross that bridge when we come to it.

Fortunately, one aspect on my list of worries that doesn't come up often is my children's safety during the commute to and from school. We live close enough that, weather permitting, I walk with my kids to and from, so I don't have to think about what I'm doing to keep them safe during that time.

However, during the long winter months when the temperatures are frigid or on days when the rain just won't let up, I pull out the car and suddenly I have a new level of anxiety... which is why I feel better knowing that I can turn to the the name who has provided drivers with products to help them outsmart the elements for the last 40 years: Rain-X.

Rain-X products

Starting with their Original Glass Treatment water beading technology, Rain-X now offers wiper blades, glass cleaners, car washes, waxes, bug and tar removes, headlight restoration kits and more — they lead the automotive aftermarket in glass care.

This is why when Rain-X focuses on encouraging drivers to prepare for even the most unexpected weather conditions this school year, we need to listen! Why would you not want to stay one confident step ahead of Mother Nature on the road this season and beyond?

In fact, a new survey from Rain-X has revealed that up to 94% of parents admit to having anxiety about someone else driving their children to school. The greatest cause for concern (93%) comes during times of unpredictable and inclement weather like rain, sleet or snow. Whether kids and teens take the bus, ride in a carpool or drive themselves, their safety during the commute is a primary concern among parents.

For 62% of parents, safety concern stems from nervousness over decreased visibility that the driver could experience during bad weather. Parents whose children ride the bus (52%), carpool with another driver (49%) and parents of teen drivers (32%) all worry that drivers and their vehicles may not be prepared for such conditions.

However, more than 8 in 10 parents said their concerns would be alleviated knowing a vehicle was properly maintained with features like a water-repellent product for windshields, windows and mirrors for optimal visibility in even the worst weather conditions. It's time to ensure that all vehicles transporting kids are prepared!

In addition to keeping windshields their cleanest, Rain-X formula also repels rain, sleet and snow with its water beading technology. This technology causes water on the vehicle windshield to bead up and roll away, enhancing driving visibility in inclement conditions.

Considering that greater visibility means that drivers can ensure safer rides to and from school for students, the result is that parents and families are provided with greater peace of mind during the school year. It should definitely be more than just school buses that have the cleanest, clearest windshields possible!
