Rain-X Review & Giveaway!!

I did it. I bought a mini-van. I never thought that I'd be a mini-van mom, but I am. Dont get me wrong, I loved my suv's, and the car has most definitely served its purpose for the past year, but the family has grown and it was time for the vehicle to grow too.

We bought used from one of the nicest couples that I've ever met and they did take wonderful care of the van. But me, just being me, replaced the wiper blades. Not too long ago, the wiper blades on the car freaked out and basically shredded and I got so nervous that someone was going to splash a mud puddle on the car and I wouldn't be able to see. What a scary thought!! I replaced the wiper blades with awesome Rain-X Latitude wiper blades and what an amazing switch that they are. A clean windshield is a happy windshield and a safe windshield!!

Though I may have changed the wiper blades before it was necessary, I'm getting into the habit of changing them every Groundhog day! Rain-X and Jody DeVere from AskPatty.com has suggested doing it every year, and Groundhog day is a great reminder to do it.

Winter is still here and even though I'm desperately hoping for spring, we still need to take those winter weather precautions! Make sure you have more than a half tank of gas- we don't want stalling out vehicles due to too little gas in the tank. Do a regular walk around your car, checking lights, fluids, wipers etc,... I'm known for consistantly running out of windshield wiper fluid, so now I keep some stashed in the trunk. And speaking of stashing things in the trunk... make yourself an emergency kit!! Toss in a blanket, a few snacks, an extra ice scraper, bottled water and a bag of kitty litter. My own personal addition would be a spare pair of shoes and socks, if you get your car stuck and have to get out in the muck, your feet are gonna end up being COLD!

Lets take care of ourselves on the roads and take care of the cars that carry us around on the roads.

Want to win a Rain-X car care kit? It consists of Rain-X Latitude wipers (specific for your car), Rain-X weatherbeater 2 in 1 glass cleaner and repellant, and the new Rain-X extreme clean.

To enter, leave in a comment something that you would keep in your emergency kit in your car.

Extra entries!! Subscribe or follow A Couch With A View! Post about this giveaway on your blog and leave me the link in a comment! Follow CaseyDeuce on Twitter and tweet this giveaway!!

Please keep in mind, if you're the winner you will need to provide me with the cars year, make and model so that I can make sure that you get send the correct wiper blades!!

This giveaway will accept entries until noon eastern, Thursday, February 26th. Winner will be chosen with random.org and will be emailed. Winner will have 3 days to reply or else a new winner will be drawn!

Handi-wipes: not only are they good for cleaning up messes, the alcohol on them make a good antiseptic in the event you get a cut or abrasion.

I have a crank flashlight/radio combo, band-aids, matches, advil, tums, tweezers, scissors, wet ones, silver blankets, duct tape and sanitary napkins.

Sanitary napkins are essential for personal 'emergencies', but they are also excellent for car accident injuries because they are so absorbent and you can put pressure on the wound without touching it directly. Thanks for the giveaway. mybabyappleseed(at)yahoo(dot)ca

I USED to have jumper cables but that was before the lawn mower's battery started having issues and I had to jump it every time I wanted to use it. So pretty much, I have a flashlight and screwdriver.

Susan February 12, 2009 at 11:42 PM  

I would keep a car battery thing with jumper cables. It also has pressurized air to fill up the tires in case of a flat tire and can be used as a high powered flashlight.

Donna R.,  February 15, 2009 at 9:31 PM  

There's no point in keeping a flashlight in the car when it's so cold here. The batteries just go dead. But, jumper cables are a necessity. Oh yes, lots of extra warm clothing, a candle in a tin and a "space" blanket. Thanks for the contest.

One of the things that I have in my trunk for emergencies is a little tire air pump and a tire repair kit. Thankfully I've never had to use it myself, but I a friend did once and I was really glad that I had it and so was she. I'm so glad I've got a DH that thinks of just about everything.

I have this weird alumninum blanket that is supposed to hold in your body heat, although when I tried it out, I wasn't impressed!

My husband keeps one of those 12-volt (cigarette lighter powered) tire pumps in the trunk -- and it's saved my bacon a couple of times!

Thanks for the giveaway...I always have a fire extinguisher in my trunk, and depending on the season, I carry a shovel, blankets, and 10-20 lbs of sand.

Living in Florida, I figure "keep the kitty litter out of the trunk, it might attract panthers or something". What I have actually used often enough to be worth mentioning is a tire-plugger tool, used to patch a hole after running over a nail or equivalent. That and the electric air pump keeps me mobile, saves on AAA calls.

I've got a first aid kit in my car that's got a lot of stuff, but I always keep quarters in my glove box in case I evernneed to use an air machine to pump up a tire. I also make sure we have a coat each if it is cold. I'm skullaria at gmail dot (Com)

I do have an emergency kit - flashlight, jumper cables, etc. But, recently I added earmuffs, extra pairs of gloves, and a sealed container with granola bars and water bottles. You can never be too safe. Thanks for this chance.
