Sick and tired of cleaning your car’s windshield the morning after a snowstorm? I sure was, so I ordered a Sno-Off windshield cover. The premise is simple: you put the cover in place before a storm, then peel it off afterward to reveal a clean and clear windshield underneath.
The manufacturer offers several sizes, so be sure to select one that matches or exceeds the dimensions of your windshield. Suction cups attached to the cover help hold it in place on your windshield, but more than a few reviews declare them to be ineffective. Tabs on both ends of the cover close in vehicle’s front doors, though, and prevent the cover from flying away in the wind, discouraging all but the most determined thieves to boot.
One note: don’t let the manufacturer’s claim of this cover’s “tough, weather resistant polyolefin” impress you. This just fancy talk indicating that the product is vinyl.
At $6.70 for the “jumbo” and “standard” sized covers, it seems to me that it’s worth a shot — especially if it indirectly saves
me someone from breaking more squeegee brushes this year. If you order from Amazon, be sure to use promo code SAVE15AE to save 25%, which nets you the $6.70 price.
