Preparing your car for winter involves not only changing tires, but also replacing the windshield washer fluid with winter one, because otherwise the fluid will start to freeze and we will have a big problem. Instead of buying a ready-made product at the station, add one product to the lukewarm liquid and it will certainly not freeze. You can also prepare the winter liquid yourself. Contrary to popular belief, it is very simple. You only need a few ingredients.
Remember to change your windshield washer fluid to winter. Fortunately, you can prepare it at home
Windshield washer fluid is essential in your car, so if you haven’t changed it to winter fluid yet, don’t delay. You can prepare the winter liquid at home. You need a jug, a bowl or a large pot. Pour 4 liters of water inside (filtered water is recommended to contain the least amount of scale), a spoon, 100 ml of vinegar and 250 ml of isopropyl alcohol. Mix all ingredients and remember to quickly pour the liquid into the bottle and close it, as the alcohol evaporates quickly. The liquid prepared in this way will not only not freeze, but also will not leave streaks on the surface.
What to add to windshield washer fluid to prevent it from freezing? Mix it with lukewarm liquid and you won’t be afraid of frost
If we didn’t have time to change the windshield washer fluid to winter, all is not lost. Fortunately, we do not have to remove the fluid from the reservoir with a pump. This is quite troublesome and requires the purchase of special equipment. Just add 250 ml of isopropyl alcohol or denatured alcohol to the container and the liquid will certainly not freeze.. Another way is to add a concentrate of winter fluid to the summer fluid and obtain a mixture resistant to minus temperatures.
