Noisy wiper blades try a potato

My wiper blades have been getting realy noisy recently probably due to the wash and wax i use i was talking to a customer who said try wiping the screen with a potato cut in half, so i did and it worked no more noisy squeaky wipers (i was skeptical to be fair) but now i have a clean windscreen and no more noisy wipers

Did you use a King Eddie, Albert Bartlett, or a Jersey Royal !?

Would take ages with a Jersey Royal Whistle

Glad it cured your squeaking as they are so annoying when they do that.

P.S. Are they any good for w/screen chips ! Laughing

It's many years since I have heard this suggested.

An alternative is dampened newspaper, other than the FT, of course.

You then have newspaper & potatoes - just add chips. Rolling with laughter

And vinegar, that's good for the screen. Jut not tartare sauce.

Well butter my leeks!

Bow down Praise indeed to Sir Walter Rayleigh (or did he invent the bike)?

It's a Potaatoooe as K. Lemon would say.

I feel hungry now with talk of chips and vinegar wrapped in newspaper!
