You guys are great!!!On other forums the flame fest would have started and chased the mis-placed question poster into the woods.I really love this forum because of the friendly attitudes of the members.
I agree with the all of the above and will add: whenever I'm cleaning my windshield at the gas station (w/ their squeegee) I'll give the blades a quick once over with the squeegee's sponge side. Doing so helps knock off any crud build up between maintenance washes.
I also have heard of folks using teflon wiper blades?? Not sure what they are or if they are worth paying for. Also we will store our car in the winter and they say you should keep the blades off the windshield use a piece of sponge between the two or take of the wiper blades entirely and keep them in the house - anyone done this or have advice? TIA -
