Use a ‘good quality’ windscreen cleaner to make wipers safe

Motorists might like to ensure they clean their car windscreen wipers if advice from one publication is anything to go by.

According to a piece in the Washington Post, wipers can be "vital" for safe driving so it is important to ensure they are in good condition.

They can be clogged up with tar from the road, grime or dirt, plus changes in the weather or UV rays can also cause issues.

The publication recommended using a "good quality" windscreen cleaner and a wet towel, "then wipe and rinse with plain water".

"If the wipers still don't work well, they should be replaced. Most experts say that wipers should be replaced every six to 12 months, depending on wear and tear," it added.

Drivers might also like to wash their vehicle regularly in order to help avoid rust, according to Ashley Macdonald, writing for North Shore News as this corrosion can be a "car killer".
