I use Costco windshield washer deicer, however it will leave a layer of ice in the cold winter which is annoying. Does RX deicer have same problem? Any alternative? TIA

So is the washer fluid good or bad? lol

Does it depend on the car you use it on?

I use Rain-X, the -40 Rain-X washer fluid, and the Rain-X Latitude wipers. All 3 are excellent. The washer fluid also helps make the rain-x window treatment last a bit longer too.

The weatherbeater wipers are not good though. Just generic blades.

It's a RAM truck - from the manual - "Use of Rain-X or products containing wax or silicone
may reduce Rain Sensing performance."

You're right. Ya I may pick up some more. Also to those who have had issues, no issues here on all the cars we have that use the Rain X De-Icer in winter. No films, no damages to teh windshield, etc. No damages to the washer reservoir, no frozen lines, etc.

All Subaru vehicles here.

Thanks again OP! Ignore the down votes lol.

Definitely not with the windshield fluid if this is following the trend from previous years. The windshield fluids will most likely come in specially marked white box with a different barcode than regular version. It is NOT the same as scanning 4 jugs individually.

I realized some of these washer fluids come sealed with aluminum foil while others don't.

I still have like six bottles from hoarding past few years.

Is it not like the seal of freshness on beer and wine bottles? :)

I will only be using those with the seal during winter and use the rest the rest of the year, just to play safe unless it's actually water alone that evaporates which makes the concentration more potent.

Years? During slush season here in Winnipeg, I can go through a bottle in a week. I need a storage room full of this stuff.

I had like two dozen and haven't bought for at least the past three years. I didn't know it was that bad, I thought the extreme cold there would stop snow and ice from falling, i.e. clouds get frozen there.

Maybe an extended canopy over your windshield will be more cost effective?

Good deal but bad for Audi cars with fluid sensor. I had to flush my fluid tank with hot water several times to get the sensor back to normal.

Actually, maybe you are following the car ahead of you too closely. :)

You mean the windshield fluid level sensor?

If just rain sensor, probably not a big deal, between a clear windshield and the car itself can turns on wipers if it's raining, I'll choose a clear windshield.
