How to keep your windshield clean of rain, fog and snow.

Keeping your windshield clean through rain, snow and fog is crucial for safety. Visibility is essential for safe adventures behind the wheel. With this ethanol-based water repellent, you can keep your windshield clear when facing elements.

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • Castor oil
  • Ethanol
  • Filtered water
  • Measuring cup
  • Rag
  • Rubbing alcohol (isopropyl alcohol)
  • Spray bottle

WHAT YOU DO:

For a simple solution…

  • Pour half a cup of rubbing alcohol into a spray bottle.
  • Add one cup of filtered water to the spray bottle.
  • Swirl the bottle to mix the two ingredients. The bottle may feel warm. Wait until it cools before screwing on the spray trigger.
  • Spray the solution onto the exterior of a clean and dry windshield.
  • Use a clean and dry rag to wipe the windshield until it is completely dry.

For something a little more serious…

*Use a clean spray bottle; don't add to the simple solution above.

  • Add three ounces of the ethanol to the spray bottle.
  • Add one teaspoon of rubbing alcohol to the spray bottle.
  • Add two teaspoons of castor oil to the spray bottle.
  • Swirl the bottle to mix ingredients.
  • The bottle will feel warm — wait until it cools before screwing on the spray trigger.
  • Spray the solution onto the exterior of a clean and dry windshield. Use a clean and dry rag to wipe the windshield until it is completely dry.
