Windshield wiper marks are a common problem that can be quite annoying but also dangerous. They can obstruct the driver’s visibility, making it difficult to see the road ahead of you.
The best way to avoid this is to maintain the cleanliness of your windshield by regularly using a quality glass cleaner and a rag to wipe off any dirt or grime that may have settled on it. This is especially true of the front windshield, where a lot of this debris tends to accumulate.
If the wiper blades become worn, they will drag over the windshield, scratching it with their crystalline edges as they pass across. These scratches are very small at first, but will worsen as time goes on.
Another reason for wiper scratches is if the wipers become dirty and clogged with dirt or leaves. This can also lead to a build-up of rust and corrosion on the rubber blades. If you own a junk car then chances are the windshield is all scratched up.
Once this happens, the wipers are unable to wipe away all of the water that can sneak through the cracks. This allows the water to collect on the windshield, which can reflect sunlight and headlights causing additional damage.
The good news is that windshield wiper scratches can be removed by following the instructions below. This is a simple process that will have your windshield looking like new in a short amount of time, with minimal labor required.
