[Walmart] Rain X De-icer Windshield washer fluid $2.00

I saw Rain-X De-icer (Yellow) windshield washer fluid for $2.00 at Walmart in Erin Mills Mississauga.

I know some people have good experience with this but I didn't bought any because it leaves a film after cleaning.

This is an excellent price. But it's not in the flyer, and looks to be that store specific. OP please update the title with the location.

Aren't these $1 on sale?
Never. You're confusing this with some cheapo washers.

Don't put this in your Volkswagen. It'll gum up the fluid level sensor.

Don't have a Volkswagen but for me the issue is that it leaves a greasy residue on my windshield. So when you spray the fluid in winter, for a second or two there's this white greasy film that makes it harder to see through the windshield. After that it clears up. But then any subsequent wipes without fluid also leaves a white greasy film for a second before clearing up.

I hate this thing. I don't understand how more people don't have the same problem. And it took a while to flush out the fluid completely from my reservoir, and clean the grease off my windshield + replace my wipers.

Yes same here. It seems worse with an older windshield....

Picked up 4 boxes (16) an hour ago.

There was about a skid there. Hard to spot as none were taken out of the box. Located in the aisle.

Ok so you found some after winter clearance, which would be location specific and YMMV. Usual sales for this won't be at that price.

The best sale price I've seen that was widely available was a couple of years ago when Walmart had a 4-pack for $8.88 on Boxing Day. So $2/jug is really good.

That's because you mixed it with the regular blue stuff that was in there before you added rainx.

I have been using it for years over many vehicles and never experienced the "haze phenomenon" you are referring to, as I always flushed the old and never mixed.

It definitely does get worse with an older windshield. I don't like this stuff either but I find the summer RainX washer fluid doesn't have this problem as much.

Are you mixing the de icer rainx with your summer stuff?

I make sure to drain whatever is in there before adding rainx de icer. I remember it was greasy when I mixed
