Windshield Washer Fluid

Windshield Washer Fluid

Windshield washer fluid is used for on-road, on-demand cleaning of the windshield through the electrically operated washers. Some vehicles also use a washer system for the rear window, and even the headlights.

Windshield washer solvent is readily available by the gallon in auto supply stores as well as supermarkets and it is cheap. It is wise to keep the windshield washer reservoir full at all times with washer fluid. Running the system out of fluid can damage the windshield washer pump. DO not fill the washer fluid reservoir with water, as it does not provide anti-freeze properties and does not clean as well as washer fluid. Some vehicles have multiple washer fluid reservoirs for different parts of the vehicle. During the winter months where there is a lot of road salt, it's a good idea to keep a bottle of washer fluid in your car.
