Forgive my n00b-ness. Just did my MSR on Mon-Tues and trying to get everything sorted out
I love thumb squeegees like this:

Available from Aerostitch. I have several gloves that also have integrated squeegees too.

My experience with RainX and other chemicals has not been so good. The visor on my old Caberg delaminated after I used such a product - no proof, but suspect it was the chemical. Anyway, with the squeegee and sticking my head out from the windshield from time to time, just let it rain!
