Chill Factor 5L Screenwash (ready to use) £1.49 @ Home Bargains

Found 5th Jan 2014
I found this earlier today whilst at my local store (Stockton-on-Tees).

Had a look on the website but can't seem to find it there so although it most likely is nationwide it doesn't seem to be an online deal... yet.

Some may argue about the quality but at this price it's a no brainer... hot deal.

Next cheapest is Carplan for £2.71 (but delivery is extra). You can check it out via the link below.

And I thought my 2.5L from 99p store was good.

bought it from blackpool store last week bargain

Any idea what mixture level it is and what temperature it will go down to, have seen many cheap bottles about but I won't buy it now unless it will cover down to at least minus 5 as the last 3 winters the stuff froze and was useless, a lot of bottles out there do not state protection level or mixture level for freezing conditions etc, so assume the cheap ones just don' say what it should be able to cope with !

The link to Amazon (who have it priced at £9.56) has it at -8.

if this is anything like the deicer i once bought from the same make (chill factor) I would steer well clear. rather than melt the ice it produced a ghastly sludge that just sat on the windscreen.

Nah I've used it before when it was icy on the roads and it was fine.

I would not use 'ready to use' screenwash, you're paying for a large amount of water. Go for the concentrated stuff, you'll find on a per litre basis it works out much cheaper.

Worse than a waste of time and money when real winter weather arrives.

real winter



Coming soon to a UK cinema in 2014.

This time, its personal, this time we're fighting back with washing up liquid and hot water.

Expensive coloured water..:(

Last year I was paying £1.50 for the 2L Asda stuff that stated down to -20 but even when poured in neat it still froze when hitting an iced up windscreen. Something that states -4 is going to be absolutely useless

I'VE GOT BETTER AND CHAPER SOLUTION!

I'm going to get drunk - then I'm going to toilet - pee to bottle and then I put the "STUFF" to my car - brilliant thing with high content of alcohol!!

Pees a cake :-]

P.S. I recommend to you to have set up in correct way your washers - to do not **** on pedestrians with this "STUFF" !!!

Forget the cheapo supermarket and pund shop stuff they only Protect to -5 or -6 UNDILUTED.

If you want real protection for your screen waters need to get stuff at -20 or below. Comma has Xtreme stuff claiming to -64 C.

I bought a 5 ltr undiluted screenwash for £5.99 from a local independent car accessory shop and on the bottle it says if you can dilute it down to give only -5 C by dilute it 1->5. Ie it makes up nearly 25 litres of elcheapo.

Why pay for water? (unless your supply is metered)

Lidl still have the -60c stuff at around £5/5litres.

This is by far and away the best stuff to buy.
