Default Pissing Rain and your LID

I drive up and down the n81 everday and yesterday was a bit messy with all the rain. Especially when you get stuck behind one of the numerous trucks that are up and down that road. dirty mucky rain on the visor and constantly wiping it off. eventually it seems the dirt sticks and visibility is not good and gets dangerous at times. Is there anything out there to help me visor on rainy days?

if you can stick a rag down near the clocks, it can be handy to clean the visor with

Get a pair of household rubber gloves (black - otherwise you'll feel like a twat) cut one of the fingers off at the base, cut the tip off and pull over the index finger of your left glove - instant mini squidgi

I got some of that a year or two back in bikeworld .

On the instruction notes it specifically says "only for use on glass - not plastics".

I used it on my now old bike helmet visor and it seemed to work. I don't know what the damage/side effects are if using it on plastic.
