Rain-X Wins 2019 ‘Product of the Year’ Award

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



Rain-X Waterless Car Wash & Rain Repellent, a state-of-the-art, exterior car cleaning product, has been voted Product of the Year for 2019. Product of the Year is the world’s largest consumer-voted award for product innovation, where winners are determined by the votes of 40,000 consumers in a national representative survey conducted by research partner Kantar. 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. The 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 was a past recipient of the “Product of the Year” award for its Rain-X Latitude Water Repellency Wiper Blades in 2017.

Studies conducted by Kantar TNS show that consumers are 44 percent more likely to purchase a product awarded “Product of the Year” and 36 percent more likely to trust the products with this logo.
