An Easy Way to Protect Your Windshield Wipers

new-uses-wiper_300If you’ve ever had to deice your windshield wipers after a snow or ice storm, you know what a pain it can be. Save yourself the trouble next time by slipping a pair of tube socks over the blades the night before—that way, after the weather hits, you’ll simply have to remove the socks.

Get road safety tips for driving in bad weather.

    I would imagine the sock would freeze, become hard, and then be difficult to remove with the possibility of damaging the wiper. . . . I simply lift the blade off of the windshield for the night (or day) so they’re out of the way to clean off the car. Then it’s easy to use the ice removing tool to clear anything off the wipers before placing them back down.

    Can anyone tell me if, “cleaning your windshield wipers” with “rubbing alcohol” is a “good idea or not”? If not any suggestions? Thanks for your input I really appreciate your help.
