I heard you can make decent money by linking stuff from Amazon like this. When you link it, and someone clicks and buys it, you get some money from it. I don't think it's much, but if you have a thousand videos, it'd add up.

i bought walmart wiper blades, auto drive brand at $5 each..not only was i blown away by the ultra low cost, but i was equally blown away by the fact that they WORK. my old ones were horrible, we all know that awful dragging noise and streaking bad blades cause- that's what my old ones were. now as far as how long the wal mart ones are going to work- i have no idea. but $50 for premium silicone wiper blades vs $10 for the walmart ones that so far work well...maybe i'll just stick with the cheap ones! even if they only last few months, $10 is nothing.

for colder climates when your wiper blades freeze to your window and your cleaning the snow off spray the blades with undiluted windshield washer fluid, they will last a lot longer, the rubber or silicone will not tear as easy.

In winter those wipers last only one year. Cold and water freece them on to the glass. You can awoid that by lifting wipers away from the glass. Allso ice on the glass make little scratshes on rubber and they don’t wipe as good anymore, then.

I switched all three of my vehicles over to silicone blades about three years ago. The Milan was totaled, the neon is still going strong. On my odyssey, it works well on the passenger side, but chatters on the drivers side. Regular Drivers blades might last six months here in Florida. Not certain why silicone blades won't work on the drivers side.

Hey Scotty, I have some of those piaa wiper blades and I'm just wondering how i would clean the them. Would i clean them the same way as i would clean the rubber wiper blades using the denatured alcohol or would i have to clean them in a different way since it is silicone?

I have learned that when wiper blades start squeaking, I will clean the wiper (the edge that acts like a squeegee) with a rag sprayed with a little silicone lube (lasts longer than the WD-40) or WD-40. I had a pair of old "Triple Edge® blades" that were on closeout for $3.00 each that lasted at least 10 years. They looked like they were cut from old scrap tires, with bits of fabric embedded in them. Never squeaked and always cleared the worst of rain and mud. I will certainly look for silicone blades the next time. I had a $60 pair of Bosch® blades that lasted less than a year. Thanks for this video.

I had the same car as Scotty Kilmer, but my 1981 Toyota Corolla Liftback SR5 was black with a silver stripe along the sides. I really liked it up until 1983 when I drove a GTI in an autocross. I got out of the GTI shaking and traded the Corolla in for a new one the next day.

Nice i bet they will keep their shape and get a full wipe, when in the off position of my vehicle the blade doesnt make full contact because of the radius of the windshield at the door post. the rubber ones dont .yeah poor design i know and tremendous pain when driving in heavy wet snow then begins the ice dam on the end of it.

I had a choice between spending $20 (Rubber) or $40 (Silicone) on wiper blades. Took a chance, and spent $40 on the Silicone. 6 years later, they're 'okay' (they're clearly used, and the years show on them); but they still work great. When you mash it together with Rain-X and any ceramics that repels water, it really makes a difference at how often you're changing your wiper blades and your visibility when those products bead up the water and the blades simply push the water to the side. I have a set of spare Silicone blades, but I'm too lazy to replace them; even though I don't have a problem spending 5 hours applying ceramics (once every couple of years) and 15 minutes once every week cleaning my truck. A couple of times, I had thought about replacing my wiper blades; but they're so durable, that you can easily clean them with any Rain-X product and they'll be good as new for a while. At this rate, I wouldn't be surprised those blades outlast the life of my truck.

Thanks Scotty! This is my experience also. Silicon works better and lasts far, far longer. The PIAA brand you display in this video is what I use. This is a Japanese brand, and they are less costly than Bosch silicon blades. For many years I used Bosch blades. They used to sell blades which were designed to take refills; but have now discontinued the refillable blades. This is wasteful and costly... so I wound up being a customer of PIAA. And, guess what? That's right, PIAA wiper blades are refillable, just like the old style ANCO and Bosch blades were, but they are made of silicon! PIAA makes an astonishingly good product.
