Rubbing alcohol on your windshield wipers makes badly streaking wipers change to near perfect silence and clarity, it makes them "squeak proof".

So all you do is rub alcohol on the blades? And its squeak proof?

How can I quiet noisy windshield wipers without replacing them?

Squeaking or otherwise noisy blades means that they need to be replaced. WD40 will smear on the windshield and impair vision.

I live in a dessert region and often get that squeak during 'dusty months'. What I do is wipe off the blades with a really wet rag and the squeak goes away. When it doesn't help I know for certain it's time to replace them.

Ditto on not using anything 'oily/oily based' like WD40 to clean or coat the blades!

Smear some wd-40, just a little , just above your wipers, across the windshield. Not too much, & it won't impair your vision/visibility.
