I've tried all kinds of commercial sub-zero windshield liquids but am so far satisfied with none, because of the following reasons:
- They all seem to freeze below about -5C. Or at least become thick enough to jam the system. I've had the issue investigated by the dealer's mechanics, but they couldn't find anything wrong and suggested it was a low quality liquid (they claimed to have seen some on the market). I've tried different brands since, but for the last 2 winters there has been no windshield washing below -5C (approximately).
- They all stink. Not so much a problem for me, but my wife minds, so that's a good enough reason for me. Ideally the liquid should be odorless, but something faint and/or pleasant would be acceptable too.
What & in what proportions do I mix up to get a good windshield washing liquid? I'd like to avoid methanol and other highly toxic chemicals if possible. (Also, what keywords can I use to find information about this on Google?)
