RAIN-X the shower?

Has anyone ever Rain-x'ed their shower? Glass? Fiberglass?
We recently had a new shower installed in the house and the installer recommended using Rain-x. He indicated it would eliminate the need to squeege and wipe down the glass and walls each time to prevent a buildup of spots.

By all means, use Rain-X. We had our master bath remodeled in 08 & our contractor recommended it for our clear glass door panels. I was amazed at the water beading & just running off. 2 years later & with continued maintenance, our shower doors look brand new. I was so pleased with it, I used it not only on the shower doors in the coach, but also on the fiberglass shower walls as well. They key is to start with a clean surface before applying the Rain-X. I think you'll be pleased with it.

I would recommend to NOT use Rain-X on the floor of the shower.

There was a Rain-X that was designed for inside showers, mirrors, etc, It came in a black bottle and would hold up in steam much better than the regular Rain-X. I have no idea if it is still around or not. We use Protect-All which has worked very well for us.

Yea. Don't rain-X the shower floor. Use a Pledge wipe like my wife did and spend a day in the ER room. 5 x-rays and only sprained elbow.
