Winter on the road wreaks havoc on the windshield. It's never clean enough for me. I go through windshield washer fluid like mad, and I insist Ed cleans the windows every time we stop at a truck stop. They need to sparkle! I hate a dirty windshield, especially at night, because the headlights of the oncoming cars hit the dirt on the window and it becomes opaque. It's too hard for me to see. I don't need to be bobbing my head around, trying to find a hole I can see through.
I've been having fits with our windshield wipers - it seems there's always a clogged jet and the washer fluid comes out like spit. I can't stand it. And it seems the dirtiest streak - the only place the fluid doesn't reach - is in a swath right across my line of vision. I'm telling you, there's an invention in here somewhere, a way to get a perfect spray across the entire windshield, with no clogging. I gotta work on that.
Because of the wiper problems (and it happens with every brand we've ever bought), when I drive I keep the bottle of Windex up front on the floor next to me so I can give the windshield a spray without having to get out of the truck - I just reach my arm out the window (not while driving!) and spray the center area so I can see.
When it comes to my windows, I'm totally the Big Bad Wolf.
