    How can I maintain my car's wiper blades?

    When having your car washed, clean the windshield wiper blades with a soft and damp cloth. Doing so will remove the dirt that may have accumulated on the blades. 

    At the same time, inspect the windshield wipers and their blades for metal corrosion, broken frames, or any visible damage on the rubber. When any or all of these are observed, replace the blades.

    Frequently parking your car under harsh sunlight can shorten the blades' longevity, too, that's why in hot countries like ours, experts advise that wiper blades be replaced more frequently.

    When do I replace the car's wiper blades?

    Regardless whether the blades have obvious damage or your car is mostly inside a garage, though, it's best to replace your car’s wiper blades yearly or when there's a noticeable difference in their performance.

    More signs of aging wiper blades include smears, skips, or streaks they apply to the windshield at every swipe. Unusual noise created by the wipers also indicate a need for replacement.

    Also, don't wait for the rainy season to enter before you replace the wiper blades. Perhaps around the end of May, allot time to do this important safety precaution. It's better to be safe than sorry, as we already know. 

    What brand of wiper blades should I get?

    There are several brands of note in the market, and Valeo First is surely among them.  It's made by European auto parts company Valeo, whose products are "designed and manufactured to be efficient, attractive, and easily adaptable for any type of vehicle in the Philippines and even in the entire Southeast Asian region," local Valeo distributor BSB Junrose boasted.
