Default Squeeky Wiper Blades

Any secret cure to the noisy wiper blades? Silicone spray, perhaps?

I have found when my blades chatter that they are old an getting hard, then
I replace them. This is providing your blade holders have not been twisted.
Silicon spray would make a hell of a mess I would think.

I paid $50 a year ago for those fancy Canadian Tire Reflex blades.
They are the best I've ever had.

Should I expect to change blades every year?

Try cleaning them with window cleaner and a paper towel. You will probably
have to work at it a bit for them not to show black on the towel any more,
and that might help.

Depends. I have a fancy set of teflon insert blades I use during rainy
season. In spring when the chance of rain is less, I change to a set
of regular blades and let them bake in the sun all summer. Once rainy
season starts again I change back. Since the winter blades see very
little sun I expect they should last quite a while.
