Mechanic Scotty Kilmer has been working on cars for close to 48 years, so he knows a thing or two about how to get the most bang for your buck. One of the most common things he sees people throwing money away on are new windshield wipers. Most drivers take them completely for granted and Scotty’s here to remind everyone on the road the long-term good a little preventative maintenance can do. All you need is a little denatured alcohol which you can pick up at any hardware store, and a simple shop towel. Wipe your blades down until their rubber is completely clean and you won’t have to throw them out quite so soon.
