I have to admit, I’m pretty darn excited about this post! A couple weeks ago, I ran into a guy who overheard me talking about needing new windshield wipers. He leaned over and said I could probably extend the life of my wipers by simple running a fine-grade piece of sandpaper over them a couple times, and they would be working as good as new! I was overjoyed when I discovered he was totally right!
