    Re: Wiper blade leaving streaks on windshield

    OP this is hilarious I have the same exact problem. I almost feel like I did this post! I have a BMW with wipers blades that I fully cleaned, also clay barred windshield and cleaned still happening. To this date I am wondering if I need wipers or polish the glass. But in my case I suspect the chineese aquapel that I used.... but that was like, 6 months ago. I would assume it's gone. I have zero water repealleancy.

    If new wipers don't do the trick I'm also going to try that ceriglass!

    No you are not crazy ... I've heard that wiper fluid can degrade the quality of wipers. TBH i'm not sure what I'm using atm, probably BMW branded wipers fluid. When used, the blades do sweep nicely for a few minutes it then returns to squeaking sweeps.
    I’ve had great success with a combo of Sonax wiper fluid and 303 coating on the wipers. I also tend to spray the wiper fluid before wiping when I can. Sometimes the rain sensor is faster than I am though.

    I’ve just ordered a new set of aero twin plus and ceriglass polish pack. My last pair of aero twin plus only lasted me 3 or 4 months. At this stage I need to try something completely different and hope for a different outcome. I shall report back once I’ve polished and sealed the windshield.

    I do look after my wipers and try to moisturise it every now and then, I just can’t believe my friend who parks his car in the sun 24/7 has no problem with his wipers!!! How should one empty out the washer fluid to refill with something better?

    I use my Ridgid vacuum w/tube attachment.





    Refilled with 303 Windshield Washer Tablets



    Mixed with distilled water

    I recommend moving on from overpriced rubber wiper blades.. They’re way too expensive and none of them last.
    Instead go with silicone blades. I bought my silicone replacement blades for around $7-8 bucks [for the pair] and they work absolutely perfect after 5 months and I use them to clean my windshield all the time...

    We rarely get rain over here, but when it rains they work flawlessly. Find them on eBay for super cheap!

    Do the Ceriglass anyway.
    If you haven't polished your windshield you don't know what you have been missing.

    Re: Wiper blade leaving streaks on windshield

    Yeah i just polished my glass with griots fine glass polish (has cerium oxide) and thought my windshield was in good shape. The polishing cleaned the glass well but now i could see every little nic and scratch.

    The polish did a number on their glass. Great stuff. Griots glass sealant not so much.
