One of these technologically designed wipers could be your next upgrade, so we’d like to give you some instant tips on the proper maintenance of your car wiper blades. During snowy conditions, ice can accumulate on your windshield and if you’re in a hurry you may decide to use your wipers instead of your ice scraper. Do not use your wiper blades to scrape off the ice on your front window though, doing so can damage the motor, bend the arms or even rip off the wiper blades in the process. A simple thought why it’s called windshield “wiper” and not “scraper” blades.

Now if you’re out and snowy weather is in forecast, make a simple precaution of lifting your wiper blades up off of the windshield. When build up of snow or ice is in your front window, start your car and allow for the windshield to defrost before using your ice scraper – if you think the wiper blades can operate smoothly then turn them on to clear the front glass.
