Often overlooked, windshield wipers play a vital part in driver safety. Wiper blades become worn over time; the rubber degrades and the plastic warps. Poorly functioning windshield wipers cause streaking and negatively affect visibility. Damaged wipers have also been known to scratch windshields.

Windshield wipers should be replaced every six months, but there are a few steps you can take to extend their life. Clean your wipers with a damp towel once a week. Removing the grime that builds up on wiper blades allows them to function more effectively. You should also park in the shade; the sun can speed up the breakdown of wiper blades. Be sure to lift your wiper blades up and off the windshield during inclement winter weather to prevent freezing.
