A characteristic of the climate in Japan is the rainy season a little before summer, the “Tsuyu” season. There is also a typhoon season in September and October so it rains pretty much in Japan, and thus there are a huge number of anti-rain products around. This time, let’s look at five super convenient hot picks.

No. 1-Windscreen Rain Repellent

A strong water-beading spray silicon wax that when you drive at a certain speed (above 40-50 km/h), raindrops bead off that you do not need to use your wipers. The photo is “Double Jet Glaco” by Soft 99. It does not need any paint over, it works perfectly good even when sprayed in rain- easy, convenient, and thus popular.

No. 2- Wiper Blades

Rain repellent products are getting more popular while wiper blade is another helpful tool that received much attention from drivers as well. What you have to do is to install these “blades” to replace the wipers of your car and rain would slide off your windshield. The effect may be less prominent when compared with water repellent but it is a one-off installation and it functions to protect you and your car in rainy days by just a press of the switch.

No. 3- Water Repellent for Car Seats

When you are soaked in rain and get into your car, your car seat is rained-in! It is absolutely hard to dry it out- here, you may need the water repellent spray. Simply spray it all over your car seats and it would become protection against rainwater, juice or coffee…everything may accidentally get peeled over. The liquid forms little beads for easy clean up like a wipe by a cloth. The photo shows “Cloth barrier” by Soft 99, a one-time spray works perfectly good for three months.

No. 4 AC Odourant

For many drivers, the smell of the A/C is another problem in rainy season. It usually stem from the mould on the internal heat exchanger of the A/C. To solve the problem, try to spray odourant for automobile A/C on the ventilator. It is easy, and soon after your car will smell refreshing. The photo shows “Doctor DEO premium” by Carmate.

No. 5 Umbrella Holder

A solution for your all-wet umbrellas when you get into your car on rainy days. We all know that the amount of water is usually much more than we expected even we fold the umbrellas well. The carpet sticks when rain is in. Here, you need an umbrella holder. It is practical, but still fashionable as there are many colours and designs to choose from. The photo shows the “JKM Umbrella Case” by Autobacs Seven.
