    Default Car Care Hint

    In reading my various car forums...

    Care of windshield wipers came up....
    something in this country is important.... or will be after the drought

    Wipers pick up dirt on almost every wipe..

    Obviously, keep a clean windshield & clean the blades

    Using a vinegar wipe for the blades gives a good cleaning... easy
    Maintaining the rubber is Step 2... Vaseline is the ticket
    Today, I used cocoa butter... no Vaseline in this house.... (hold the rude comments)

    Anyway .. just a tip

    The other thing I have embraced in NoAmerica is the waterless car wash
    It is from the airplane industry.. applies a thin ceramic type coating that repels dirt
    Their tire spray is a flat black finish that repels dirt

    Pretty handy... with or w/o water

    70% - 90% isopropyl alcohol (regular rubbing alcohol) keeps the rubber clean & soft.

    He is grating on the nerves
    They have a slew of researchers for their content
    Scotty probably doesn't even wash his own car

    I just change my blades as soon as they stop wiping properly.

    That guy Scotty is LEGIT..

    He used to do Television Commercials back in the day when he was a young man, I forget for who
    over 50 years of Car repair experience with all kinds of cars ..
    He is not afraid to say which Cars are JUNK , no matter what Fancy Name they have , and which are Keepers ..

    He knows his stuff
