Win Rain-X® Latitude™ Wiper Blades and Cleaners

8:24 PM


Did you change your car's wiper blades this past Groundhog's Day? If not, you may want to do it pronto (and use the annual holiday as a reminder that your car's blades need replacing.) Thanks to Rain-X, we had a chance to do just that, and I feel so much safer in my car!

My biggest pet peeve is the streaky, messy haze that a worn-out blade can leave you with.. so be sure to change your blades at the first sign of wear and tear. Whether you're battling grime, snow, rain, or that yucky muddy slush that comes at you from a passing truck, we're pretty sure you'll be impressed with the effective squeegee action of the Rain-X blade.

I also took my mission for a clear view of the road one step further, and used the Rain-X® Weatherbeater® 2-in-1 Glass Cleaner & Rain Repellant on all my windows and kept things in tip-top shape with Rain-X® X-treme Clean. Now I'm ready to hit the road in any weather!

You can win a Rain-X Car Care Kit just like I use! All you have to do is comment on this post with how often you change your wiper blades (be honest!) One lucky winner will get the Rain-X® Latitude™ Wiper Blades specific for your car, a bottle of Rain-X® Weatherbeater® 2-in-1 Glass Cleaner & Rain Repellant, and a bottle of new Rain-X® X-treme Clean. You have until Saturday, February 28th at 5pm CST to get your entries in. Giveaway is subject to complete site rules. (Be sure to give us a way to reach you if you win, and remember that we will never use your email or contact info for anything other than to send your prize.) Good luck!

*** Looking for additional car care and safety tips? Rain-X and Jody DeVere, the President of the Women’s Automotive Association International and CEO of the auto-advice site AskPatty.com suggests the following:

• Conduct a regular walk around checking your lights, antifreeze, windshield washer fluid and wiper blades regularly
• Ensure your tires are properly inflated and have sufficient tread
• As the temperature drops keep your gas tank at least half full; the extra gas reduces condensation that can plug your fuel line with ice and stall your engine in cooler weather
• Create an emergency pack; items like a blanket, first aid kit, snacks, bottled water, an ice scraper, flashlight and a bag of kitty litter


Deal-lovers, check out the special promotion at the Rain-X site: Buy 2 of the blades, get a free Visibility Package!

    ReplyDelete
  83. I usually only change them on an emergency basis - i.e., when I can no longer see during a rainstorm. In fact, they probably need changing now!

    OUTLANDER 2008-2003 All Rain-X Wiper Blades 22 19
    We live in Florida so the heat just drys are blades out and after seeing the blog I realized my wipers are in desperate need of changing so I would say since my husband buys cheap blades its been about a year since they were replaced. These would be perfect for when we make a trip of 1200 miles to visit family during the rainy season.
    Thank you for the chance to be a winner.

  130. My husband puts the Rain-X chemicals on every window of my car every time he washes it, and the rain just beads up and rolls right off -- I almost NEVER have to use my wipers.

    And when I do, the windows are so smooth that the wipers pretty much never even squeak, even if the window is almost dry, so there's not much wear-and-tear going on there...

    So they get changed ~maybe~ every two years or so...

    ReplyDelete
  131. I'm kinda embarassed but I don't change them until they absolutely need to be changed

    ReplyDelete
  132. I only change them if they don't work any more!

    ReplyDelete
  133. I use the Rain-X chemicals on the car windows every time I wash them, so the wiper blades barely get any workout at all, except in the absolutely heaviest "gully-washer" downpour... And when I wash the windows, I take a swipe at the wipers themselves -- if the rubber "comes off" in great black streaks on my towel, I figure "it's time" -- which is only every couple of years.

    ReplyDelete
  134. I get mine changed as often as Hubby is tired about my nagging, about once every 18 months.

    ReplyDelete
  135. Thanks for the giveaway...I tend to replace our wiper blades when the old blades are completely worn out and the metal arms are loudly scraping across the windshield just as the heavens have opened up, with loud reports of thunder and flashes of lightning !!!

  145. We wait way too long to change our wipers. Pretty much when they are falling apart or not working at all. It's one of those things you forget about until you really need it.

    ReplyDelete
  146. I guess every six months, but not if they aren't working fine. Don't fix what ain't broke, they say.
