Keeping your pre-wetted wipers wet is not always as easy as it sounds. The use, the packaging, the solution can all have an effect on how long it takes for the wipers to dry out. Today, we are going to talk about the packaging that they come in and how that can be the cause of your dry wipers. Most pre-wetted wipers either come in a pouch or a pail. The major differences between these two options are obvious, but there are some differences that you might not consider. In a pouch with a sticker seal, the alcohol can deteriorate the sticker making it lose its adhesive glue. So, when you go to close the wiper pouch, the sticker does not seal and the outgassing continues. Another pouch option is one with a zipper seal. This is better than the sticker option, but it leaves room for error. If there is air still stuck in the pouch, that can aid in the drying out process as well. The best way to ensure your wipers stay wet it by keeping them in a pail. The biggest advantage to the pail is the guaranteed air tight closure every time. This is not something that can be guaranteed by the pouches.
