Here’s a quick recipe with what you already have at home if you ever run out of windshield washer fluid.


1 Gal. jug

1 T dish soap

½ c. vinegar (I have seen non-sudsing ammonia used but I prefer vinegar.)

1 c. 99% Isopropyl alcohol (prevents freezing)


Pour ½ gallon water into your jug. Add 1 T. dish soap, ½ c. vinegar to your water and then fill the rest of the jug up with water. Once capped tip upside down a couple of times. Now it’s ready to use. During cold months just add 1 c. Isopropyl alcohol to your jug.

TIP: You may add a few drops of blue or green food coloring if you desire, this may help you to recognize it right away. Make sure you label it also.

TIP: If you live in a much colder climate and want to be sure it won’t freeze then place outside overnight on a cold evening. In the morning, if it appears slushy, you need to add a bit more alcohol to it.

So that’s it, quick and easy. As always, keep away from children and pets.
