Why You Should Always Top off You Windshield Wiper Fluid

A quality windshield wiper fluid is one of the most important factors when it comes to maintaining good visibility as a driver. If you've considered replacing your wiper fluid with water after it's used up, then you should strongly reconsider. Here's why that is a bad idea:

Water's freezing point is much higher than wiper fluid's freezing point. Obviously, you cannot clean your windshield with ice. So in the winter time, you can be left with poor visibility, and your risk of having an accident will increase. Thankfully, real wiper fluid is made to freeze at a much lower temperature, which means you can depend on it in cold weather. Water also does not have the same cleaning power as real wiper fluid because it does not have the same cleaning solvents and detergents that are found in wiper fluid.
