Step 1: Pull your windshield wipers into the upright position.

Step 2: Grab two old socks (if it’s a particularly windy day, try to find long socks), and put one over each wiper.

Step 3: Leave the wipers upright until you need to use the car. (Don’t forget to remove the socks before you hit the road!)
