A simple and car-friendly windshield washer fluid can be made using just a couple of your household items…


Warm weather washer fluid solution:

In a clean one-gallon plastic milk jug, mix between 1:1 and 3:1 parts distilled white vinegar to water and 2-3 DROPS of any liquid grease-removing dish detergent.

*Do not use too much detergent because it may leave a residue on your windshield.

Fill the jug with water, cap, and shake well.Windshield Repair Cost San Diego

Now, place the mixture in your vehicle’s windshield washer fluid reservoir. Test your windshield washer fluid mixture, as you usually operate your vehicle’s windshield washer system. You will see the clean! The vinegar also helps control scale build-up, adding life to your washer pump system.

* If you choose to use vinegar, which is an old-school cleaner for nearly everything, it may freeze in the windshield washer fluid reservoir.  So, a vinegar and water solution may be more suitable for warmer climates or warmer months in colder climates.


Cold weather washer fluid solution:

In a clean one-gallon plastic milk jug, mix one-half (1/2) to one (1) pints of isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) and one tablespoon of any liquid grease-removing dish detergent. Fill the jug with water, cap, and shake well.

*Do not use too much detergent because it may leave a residue on your windshield.
