I'm with you.
I too have heard all sorts of tales of yore, and maybe in the olden days before they really understood the science of chemistry and special compounds for things like wiper blades, maybe it was a good thing.
But nowadays? You'd be more likely to ruin a set of wiper blades or at least reduce their life appreciably.
Want them to last longer? Remove them and get them out of the sun when not in use. We used to do that in Phoenix all the time. When I was poor I simply carried a spare set of blades with good refills on them and would swap them when it rained. Otherwise the sun rots them pretty quickly, and even WD-40 won't help that.
Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy; its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. (Winston Churchill)
