Welcome to ecomodder!
Yikes ! No no no

It is all too easy to forget and flip them on by habit ...SCRATCHHHHH !!!
Why not just remove the entire wiper arms ?

On my Civic, it is just a single bolt that holds the wiper arm on.

Rain on the way ? No problem - just reach under the seat, grap your wrench and the wiper arms, pull over, pop the hood and pop the wiper arms back on . Tighten the bolts, shut the hood ... and you are off in all of less than three minutes ( maybe less )
