Purchasing windshield washer fluid should be a no-brainer. Just grab a couple of bottles of the blue stuff off the display at the supermarket or hardware store and move on. The problem is, some of the windshield washer fluid for sale in your area may fail to work, or worse, may harm your vehicle... some... purchasing agent at a local large supermarket chain managed to source some window washer fluid that freezes up at 32F. We inadvertently purchased some and used it. When we went for the bottle the next time it was a container of slush. Upon close inspection, we found that it was not rated for below freezing. You can see the bottle in the image above. This fluid was purchased mid-January in the dead of dark winter. We thought we would share what a proper bottle should look like. The image above shows a rating of -20. That's the range you need in winter weather. When you shop for your next bottle of the blue stuff, take one second and be sure the rating matches your local weather.
