fueling clean windshields

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

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.
