Although we don't use wiper washers very often, making sure that they are in good shape is vital to their smooth functioning
Wiper washers are not very frequently used except in the monsoons, making it very important for them to be in good shape. Unfortunately, since they are used for only a few months a year, they often go ignored when it comes to maintenance, but on the other hand, they do not ask for too much attention.
Keep the fluid for the wiper washer refilled at all times; you can even keep the reservoir filled with soapy water. Make sure you don’t use any harsh detergents that may scratch the surface of your windshield. Detergents like Surf Excel, Ariel etc are strictly not advisable. A diluted mixture of shampoo and water is ideal for the wiper washer reservoir. It will not only clean the damage owing to the heat and usage, wiper blades tend to get hard or worn out which may lead to scratches on your windshield. To keep the nozzle of the washer clean, use it on a regular basis even in the dry seasons.
Before taking the car for a long drive, it is important to make sure that the washers are functioning keeping in mind the dust, and the tiny insects that get smashed on the windscreen.
