The Best Windshield Wiper Fluid in the World and Why

The Best Windshield Wiper Fluid in the World and Why


rev up your engines, today I’m gonna talk
about the best windshield washer
squirter fluid in the world and why, and
as usual I’m not sponsored by anyone
I just tried out a bunch of them over
the years and found out which one works
the best, and I did learn the hard way, I
used to be really cheap, yeah isn’t that a
shocker and I’d buy the cheapest stuff
you could, and put it in my wife’s car
which at the time was an old Toyota, now I have to admit I’m old
school, on my own car I usually clean
the windshields by hand, but my wife she
used to be a schoolteacher, she got up
real early, all the dew and everything was
on her windshield in the morning and
she’d you squirt her and she’d use that
stuff like mad, I mean she’d go through
four, or five, six gallons of the stuff
every year, so being cheap I bought the
cheapest stuff I could get it was like
89 cents a gallon, and here’s what
happened, the cheap stuff was so caustic
there ended up being a line in the paint
and then up here on the hood where the
overspray was, there were other lines, it
actually ate through the paint
granted it took years of using it and she
went through gallons of the stuff every
year, but you don’t want to use the
cheapest stuff, because here’s the cheapest
stuff this blue stuff, and look at the
ingredients, they don’t even really tell
you what’s inside, they’re kind of lying in
the ingredients, just look at the
ingredients it says water plant based
cleaning agents and dye, but then it says
warning this product contains a chemical
known in the state of California to
cause cancer, now I assume they’re
talking about methanol, because most of
them have methanol in them, but really
look at the ingredients, what a lie, it should
say methanol, not plant-based blah blah, I
mean they’re even hiding what’s in the
thing they should at least be honest,
because look at the rain-x that i found
to be the best one, it even said danger
contains methyl alcohol cannot be made
non-poisonous, so even though it looks
like orange Fanta you got to keep the
stuff away from the kids, you don’t want
them drinking the stuff, but the good
ones all contain methanol or methyl
alcohol, that’s what helped keep it from
freezing and it makes it a nice cleaner,
and you want to get the stuff that says
all season, this one’s good to zero
degrees Fahrenheit
if you get one that isn’t, it’s gonna
freeze in the winter, like this cheap
stuff,
it says for use above 32 F it used to
say, protects to 32, which doesn’t protect
anything, that’s the same freezing point
of water but at least they have a little
bit more honest, but if you have this in
the winter and it gets cold, it’ll freeze
and then the stuff won’t work at all so it’s
better to use the all year one all the
time so they don’t have to think about
switching it out when it gets cold, and
whatever you do don’t try to make your
own to save money, a lot of guys use
stuff with ammonia, well hey you’re gonna
breath that stuff in and it isn’t any good
for you, because really your squirters
and right here, and what’s in front of
them, your air intakes, so you’re gonna
breathe that stuff in, you’ll notice when
you do run your squirt you’re gonna
smell the stuff, and that’s one reason I
like the rain-x, because really it smells
like a weak Windex, it doesn’t have a
horrible odor to it, now granted this
cheap stuff, it hardly smells like
anything, because it hardly has anything at
all in it, it doesn’t clean bugs good, it
doesn’t do hardly anything, and being a Rain-X
product
it also helps it bead up on the windshield
so the wipers don’t drag and make noises
and stick, and since my wife is an
adamant washer user, using gallons of
the stuff every year, I put different
kinds in her car didn’t tell her what I
did, and one day after putting the rain-x
in she said, oh did you change my
wipers they clean better now in the
morning, and i said no i put this orange
rain-x stuff and it was a little more
expensive, but i wanted to see if it
worked better and she said well it
certainly does work better, and since you
can’t beat a blind experiment like that
she didn’t even know what was going on, hey
I’m sold on this stuff, but like anything
else, you want a price around, I’ve seen
this stuff advertised for over $11 a
gallon, but I bought mine for two dollars
and 87 cents a gallon and a Walmart, and
that was actually cheaper than this
cheap stuff that I bought at a local
auto parts store, this was over $3 a
gallon, so in my case I was really happy
because I got the best washer fluid and
I paid less for it, and since this is
mechanic Monday, I’m giving away some of
this stuff, to have a chance to win just
place a clean non offensive comment
on the YouTube comments below, and the
winner will be chosen random
my computer to have nice clean
windshields, so if you never want to miss
another one of my new car repair videos,
remember to ring that Bell!
