The most important thing to note is to remove the fine sand on the windscreen wipers strip in time. Scraping with these fine sands is equivalent to sanding the windscreen wipers strips with a grinding wheel. After a long time, the finish will drop, and the strip of the donkey will definitely not clean the rain.
