You probably already have everything you need to make this DIY wiper fluid. Store it in an empty 1 gallon container and be sure to mark it clearly so you don't forget what's in the bottle.

What's great about this DIY cleaning solution is that the rubbing alcohol will actually keep your wiper lines from freezing during the winter.


1 tablespoon. liquid dish soap
1/2 tsp. domestic ammonia
1 C. rubbing alcohol (optional)

Pour the dish soap and ammonia into an empty gallon container. If you do this during the winter, add rubbing alcohol to avoid freezing. You can also add it during the summer, but it is not necessary.

Fill the rest of the container with tap water, then it is ready for use. Just pour in your wiper fluid reservoir as you normally would.
