Keeping your windshield clean while you are driving is essential and unfortunately, there are many things that can gum up the works so to speak.
Mud, bugs, and other debris can accumulate on your windshield and cause residue that is hard to see through.
DIY Windhield Washer Fluid
While you can always run to the store and buy windshield washer fluid, isn’t making your own a much better idea?
We think so, which is why we found a great recipe for you that lets you make your own.
To make your own washer fluid, you just need to mix a gallon of water with 1 tablespoon of dishwashing liquid and ½ cup of ammonia (for anti freeze or vinegar.
You can also add a few drops of food coloring so that you know what the liquid is for.
Just mix this up in a gallon-sized jug and fill your reservoir whenever needed to keep your windshield clean and sparkly.
There are other recipes that do not contain vinegar.
You can also mix about 16 ounces of rubbing alcohol with 1 tablespoon of dish soap and enough water to fill a gallon jug. This works well too.
Or, you can substitute vodka for the rubbing alcohol and instead of dish soap, use liquid castile soap.
ilove craft and so something,
Love the excellent DIY projects as they are practical, fun & really help with taking the mind of office work .. Thanks & Cheers
Does the alcohol eat away at the rubber on the wiper?
I live in Colorado
I think I had this recipe all mixed up. I was drinking the vodka and mixing the soap and water togather. For windshield fluid.okay , let's start over...what a waste of stoli
@ Rob that was my concern as well
using dish soap etc containers salt which is bad for paint etc. also dish soap usually clogs the jets.
Unintelligible instructions because of lack of editing. Do not understand this symbol "(". Makes the instruction not understandable.
You act like you are so intelligent... An intelligent person would add the reciprocating ")" as intended (for antifreeze) or vinegar. If you truly understand the English language, you might rephrase it in your mind as 1/2 cup of ammonia or vinegar (for antifreeze).
I agree it would have been better without the typo, but do you need to attack the person?
Dakota I like you. Your awesome. Hahahah
Awesome DIY !!! Thank you Pinterest for saving me money. Just did this instead of buying it at a gas station. It cleaned my Glass very well
"you can substitute vodka for the rubbing alcohol"
