Anco is pretty much the industry standard. They're the same thing in the wiper industry as Prestone is to anti-freeze. Been around for years, no frills, no fancy materials, just good old-fashioned experience and years of success. If you want space age polymers, don't buy them. If you want what worked for your Dad, buy them.

Ah ha! Thanks for the info about the white vinegar! At some point I was going to ask about what'* a good substance to keep the door seals and stuff nice and supple, but I guess you've already addressed that for me. Thanks a lot!

Vinegar would be great to clean the seals, but to repel moisture so your doors don't freeze shut, I'd use a teflon or silicone lube. Spray it on a rag, and wipe it onto the seals.

I personally like the rain-x blade. I've come to learn that for some reason , other blade just don't wipe the far right corner in front of the passenger side. Rain-X blades have many joints so they are flexible and they work great . Cover eery inch. They wipe well and leave NOTHING behind. I reommend them . I have them on both of my cars and they work great .

White vinegar also gives it that just eaten smell.
