How to Choose the Right Windshield Washer Fluid

Did you know there are actually multiple types of windshield washer fluid? The many versions of this necessary tool serve different purposes, and choosing the right one for your needs can make a big difference in visibility.

De-Icing

If you live in an area with icy, snowy winters, de-icing windshield washer fluid is an excellent choice. This one is designed to break down ice and frost and to withstand very low temperatures, so it’s a convenient tool to have during the cold season.

Bug-Remover

Bug-remover windshield washer fluid isn’t just for bugs. This type is made to take on most debris, like pollen or bird droppings. If you’re planning a long summer trip, it’s worth the extra upcharge to opt for this type which will keep your windshield clean and clear.

All-Season

All-season wiper fluid is the best of everything, with the ability to remove snow, bugs, and dirt. Just be sure to check the temperature rating to see if it can handle the lowest temperatures in your area.

Classic

You’ll find the standard blue windshield washer fluid at most gas stations. This one will get the job done but may not work as well at removing bugs or ice from the windshield. Buy it premixed or take the bargain route and get a concentrate you can mix with water.
