If you’ve ever tried to drive through blizzard-like conditions with worn wipers, then you understand the importance of caring for this often overlooked aspect of winter car care.

The trick, really, is to install new wiper blades about every six months. In addition, you may consider installing a set of blades specifically designed for winter driving. A strong rubber cover over the frame of these specially-designed winter blades helps prevent ice, snow and slush from building up on your windshield.
