Rain-X and a Shower Cubicle

I can't detail as much as I used to now having moved house to a flat with no outside tap or space to wash so am getting a bit restless. I also now have a shower cubicle rather than a bath with shower and curtain so its a pig to keep clean so thought I could solve 2 problems here.

Would using Rain-X on it help the water to sheet off better so it doesn't dry on it so much and leave scum marks or is it only really effective in a car because of the movement? Similarly would I be better off with a wax over Rain-X for sheeting ability?

Sad I know but at least I can jusity keeping hold of my products for a while longer this way.

Works fine and very well.

The vertical surface means the water just runs away. Works on tiles too.

I thought it was the norm on DW for your shower to be Rain-Ex'd?

Shower screens are also one of the acceptable uses for a squeegee blade.

No but it may be suitable substitute for Dodo Time to Dry as when you spray Mr Muscle it makes any water holding on to the glass, slip off so guess it breaks down the water somehow like Time to Dry.

(Please don't try this at home )

Been usint the W5 glass cleaner kit from Lidl for a while now. The one that comes with the "sanding block" that falls apart if you queeze it too hard.

Works a treat. Run the shower over the glass and the water just does not stick!

Had to clean the glass with pure lemon juice first cos of the hard water here in Essex.
