I confess: I am not a winter person. I don’t enjoy the cold, the wind, the snow, the freezing rain. I don’t ski anymore, I don’t ice skate, nor do I snowshoe. To me, winter means catching up on movies I did not get to see when they were in theatres, trying new recipes, playing games with the kids, planning vacations at the beach, etc.
The only thing I dislike more than winter itself is cleaning off the car, and especially scraping the windows. Arrgghhhh … such a waste of time! And the windshield is the worst, especially when your wiper blades are stuck to the window. Trying to dislodge the blades without damaging them is an exercise in frustration. Clumps of ice stay on the blades and make a mess of the windshield. And of course, the part right in front of your eyes is always the one that doesn’t get wiped properly. Ever tried to clean off the blades at a red light, with your arm sticking out of the window to shake the blade when it comes up? You know what I mean, right?
Recently I discovered an awesome Canadian solution to this decidedly Canadian problem: heavy-duty wiper covers
created and made in Canada
(Ontario) by Dad’s Wiper Covers
. The covers are made from the same high-quality vinyl used on snowmobile seats, which means they won’t crack or break in cold temperatures. The stitching is top notch and super-resistant, and they are large enough to slip easily on any windshield wipers. Just put them on when the forecast calls for snow or freezing rain, and you’ll be glad you did. Your wiper blades will stay clean and dry. Just slip them off and you’ll be ready to go in no time!
And when they’re not in use, simply fold them away in your glove compartment or storage nook. They’ll be ready for next time! It’s such a simple idea and it really works. Not only do they simplify things, they also save you money by extending the life of your wiper blades. And at $18.99 a pair (with FREE shipping)
these nifty wiper covers are excellent value and a great gift idea!
Who do you know would love a pair of these?
