Just a warning, if this is the pre-mixed one it freezes really easily.

And a further warning - check that it's OK to use with polycarbonate headlights and 'fan' screenwashers or you could end up with a large bill.

I paid £3.99 for 5L @ Tescos - never thought of actually reading the labels...
#4
you can get the same from poundland!

Cold
smells like cat urine and poor value as not concentrated or effective when temp drops
Get some Juicy Apple screenwash instead and dilute to required concentration without awful urine smell everytime you wash/wipe the screen and because you're diluting it yourself works out more effective and better value

Never had the slightest issue with a drop of Fairy. My car and paintwork is just as shiny as the next mans.

Have you ever had the slightest issue with knowing the difference between car shampoo and screenwash though?

I'm sure you will have great fun with your fairy liquid at - 5°C though or should I say your washer pump will ;-)

None at all. Car shampoo is for shampooing your car and screenwash is what you put in your screenwasher bottle. That's right isn't it?
I use car shampoo to shampoo my car and I put water with a drop of Fairy liquid in my screenwash bottle.
I'm not sure what point you were trying to make tbh.

Cheap screenwash is usually very poor value - mainly water and not suitable for use in winter. Beware.

Cold! (in both senses).

Washing up liquid contains salt and should NEVER be used in a screenwasher. Also provides NO protection from freezing so, as screenwashers are a legal requirement you'll probably be driving illegally for several weeks of winter.

Dumbest advice on HUKD at the moment!

Lidl -60C stuff is £4.99. Diluted to 2:1 it gives 15 litres, working out about the same cost, but gives -10C protection. I very much doubt this will even give -5C protection.

Lol, my washer bottle is frozen up - so jail me!

FYI my car is garaged overnight and left in an indoor works car park when at work. My washer bottle has NEVER frozen under these circumstances. And who have I advised?

Hope you don't drive far between the two then! Salt will rot your bodywork. Is it really worth that for a few pence worth of decent screenwash?

Yep, that's the best stuff at best price out there - I buy a couple when they're available as unfortunately it's not a permanent Lidl item. Have you noticed whether it's in stock at the moment?

The whole bulk screenwash thing is a fraud. We manufacture the stuff and the reality is that the stuff, like this, which you are buying cheap, is grand for a mild frost but useless if it stays cold for a couple of days or if you find yourself in the -5 or below. Why do we sell such crap? Well.... people jump up and down when they see a price like this. The good stuff, which really works... most people won't buy it because it costs more.

Nicely said. So what, in your opinion, is the good stuff?

I managed to pick one up from my local last week. I did miss out last year, lucky it was a mild winter.
#18
Its this price throughout the year. Never had any real trouble with it. Rarely freezes unless its really bad weather.
#19
I do a LOT of driving, been caught out more than once with empty and could not find a deal on wash. Then i realized in a pinch, go to poundland, buy 2 bottles of cheap ass window cleaner, dump it in for less than a pound, does not freeze and no damage to squirters or paint .

contains salt & has NO protection against freezing? interesting.....

It's not the screenwash that freezes up on my cars it's the jets, even though I have fairly concentrated screenwash (that says don't get on the paintwork).

"NEVER" be used in a screenwasher? The last 3 cars I had that went to the scrappie when dead definitely didn't die because of salt in the screenwash.....
