Your windshield wipers do a lot to protect you while you’re driving. But does it seem like your wipers don’t last that long?

Keep reading below for some quick tips on how to maintain your windshield wipers.

Clean Every 3 Months

Dirt and grime can accumulate under the wiper blades over time. That grime can corrode the rubber on the wiper blade and cause harm to the windshield.

Run a clean cloth along the wiper blades when you wash your vehicle or every three months. This will remove any grime and protect your windshield and wipers.

Use a Rubber Protectant

Using a rubber protectant after cleaning can extend the life of the wiper blade.

First, clean your wiper blade with vinegar, then go in with the rubber protectant and rub it into the blade with a clean cloth. This helps keep the rubber ‘hydrated’ and less prone to cracking.

Use Quality Wiper Blades

Quality windshield wipers are made with the best materials.

Not only will quality windshield wipers last you longer, but doing the steps above will extend the lifetime of your blades.
