When your windshield wipers seem to not be working well, try cleaning them with simple soap and water. Dirt, leaves, and pine needles get stuck there. Also if this doesn't work, try roughing up a little with sand paper. Good as new.

I always use a clean shop rag or a strong paper towel soaked in isopropyl rubbing alcohol, wipe that wiper down repeatedly and keep turning the cloth, when it stops turning your wipe black it is clean (oh boy this really restores it GOOD).

To extend the life of your car's windshield wipers, wipe the blade with a rag that was soaked in white vinegar. This softens and refreshes the wiper blade. A cheap and effective treatment.

If this works on windscreen wipers, then it should also work on 'fridge door rubbers.
