“I always bring a potato with me when I pick up cars from auction, in case the windshield wipers don’t work.”

This guy who used to stay at the same hotel I frequented on business trips a few years back. We used to talk at dinner at the hotel sometimes, and he told me that if you cut a potato in half and rub it on your windshield, you don’t need wipers because the potato juice repels water.

I actually don’t know if this is good or bad advice. I’ve never tried it.
