    Been getting allot more snow then we usually do here in southern new jersey this winter

    So I came up with a solution for keeping the ice and snow from freezing to my wipers while parked during a snow storm

    I just cut some foam pipe insulation to fit and slide over my wiper blades

    Saves allot of time in the morning and makes cleaning snow off of the windshield much faster not having to worry about the wipers being frozen to the glass

    Keep the wipers in the up position while the foam is in place

    Hope this helps...

    you can also just pick them up... the pressure springs will hold them off the glass.

    i like it. i got tired of leaving my wipers up and still having to scrape ice off of them, so i took a similar route. take a 3 inch diameter length of pvc pipe, cap one end and just slide ip over your wipers while they are up. in the morning, slide it off, and they are completely ice/snow free
