Windshield Wiper Fluid and Why You Should Care.
Most people don’t even think about their vehicle’s windshield fluid until they absolutely have to. Here in Arizona, this is mostly likely to occur during Arizona’s summer monsoon season. This 3-month period is when Arizona gets close to 50% of its’ total rainfall for the entire year. And speckled between these insanely beautiful storms full of fast-moving dark clouds, intense rainfall (sometimes mixed with golf ball sized hail), and powerful thunder and flashing lightning, are a little something we’ve all experienced: haboobs. For the non-locals, haboobs are forceful, fast-moving, rolling dust storms.
If you get caught driving in one, it can make visibility nearly impossible. Even if you’re not out driving through one of these haboobs, if your car is outside when the dust storm rolls in, it will leave your car coated with a thick layer of dust and dirt. This. This moment right here. This is when you will realize how important your windshield fluid really is. Those windshield wipers aren’t going to be able to do their job properly without the right windshield fluid.
Windshield Fluid: What is it for anyways?
The obvious answer is that it keeps your windshield clean. Windshields are so important. Windshields serve as a physical barrier or shield between the outside elements and the interior and people occupying the vehicle. This barrier, the windshield, can get dirty. Maybe your windshield got dusty from last night’s storm. Maybe your windshieldis splattered with smooshed bugs from that road trip to Cali you just got back from. Or maybe that tree you parked under had a sneaky little bird who left a nice little poopy present for you smack dab in the middle of your windshield.Windshield fluid to the rescue! All you have to do is activate the windshield fluid spray and with a little help from your windshield wipers, and POOF! It’s clean!
However, there is more to windshield fluid than just helping to keep your windshield crystal clear.
Windshield Wiper Lubrication.
Windshield wipers are so important for overall general windshield maintenance. It helps the wipers move smoothly over the windshield auto glass to minimize any friction that could cause windshield damage.
