Scrublade offers a fix for the fog of smeared bugs, dirt and grime that can coat your windshield as you drive, the company says. Scrublade’s patented, advanced dual-blade “scrubber” technology utilizes hundreds of tiny triangular “scrubbers” on the leading edge of the two outer blades. The tip of each triangle pierces the debris and, as it passes through and widens to the base, the triangle breaks it apart, literally “scrubbing” your windshield clean. The second “smooth blade” squeegees away any remaining debris or water left behind. The Scrublade line covers all applications from 11- through 28-inch. Retail: $11.99 to $22.99 per blade.
