Do the math: With millions of cars on the road and winter weather around the corner, countless wiper blades will be replaced and tossed into landfills. Since wiper blades are nearly impossible to recycle, the next best thing is to help extend the life of your existing blades. Take a few minutes to saturate a soft cloth with rubbing alcohol and wipe down the blades. This will remove dirt, grime and debris from the blades. Even the smallest particles from insects, pebbles and leaves can leave streaks across your windshield, so a simple cleaning can sometimes do the trick to bring them back to almost as good as new.
