I've just used up the last of my Decosol and was wondering what you lot use in your screenwasher bottles :)

I've been tempted to try Sonax stuff but it costs an arm and a leg.

Does anybody have any views please?

I went to Halfords today to pick up some Antifreeze and noticed outside the front door they have the 3 for 2 sale on screen wash as in the link below.

Always like how they sell 'ready to use' screenwash - that water costs a hell of a lot.

That apart Mrs Lincoln, did you enjoy the play

Washing up liquids can be high in salt for water softening, so I'd rather avoid them.

I believe these days the opposite? They make them slightly acidic to neutralise the calcium content of tap water, [so you dont get white marks on your glasses] I have used washing up liquid in the summer for 45 years and have never seen a paintwork or rust problem caused by it yet. Dave

I'm using washing-up liquid for many years without any side effects now, as long as no antifreeze is needed.

When a well known German automobile association carried out a test of screen wash concentrates, a well known washing-up liquid has been the test winner, although just tested for comparison. :-o

BTW in the past I used OEM antifreeze from this company. :mrgreen:
But I've run out now and switched to XPart, alway looking for the best value for money.

Can't beat OAT5 for antifreeze to be honest .............. great stuff and it's the real deal for MG Rover? Screen wash? I like the Apple flavour one that XPart sell ;)
