Rain-X problem for buddys helmet

He applied Rain-X to his helmets shield and it works perfectly fine in the rain, just in the monring when its bright and sunny, it is REALLY bright and haizy on the windshield. seems like the rain X caused the light to disperse everywhere on the clear plastic. is there anyway to take it off rather then just waiting?

He probably should not have used rain-X on his helmet. The shield is plastic, and the rain-X is alcohol. It might have damaged the shield permanently. Might have to buy a new shield. Tell him to try soap and warm water like Flip said.

I like Rain-X on my car, but you have to keep using it or it the water starts to streak up the window when I'm using the wipers. I thought it was the wipers, but I could put new ones on and it wouldn't make a difference. Maybe even the rain-X damaged the wipers.

I use Honda Bike Polish on everything. Paint, chrome, glass, and plastic. The shield on my helmet says not to use anything like that on it, but I haven't had any problems.
