Refilling Windshield Washer Fluid

Winters in Mukwonago can mean sudden storms, snow, and freezing rain. Be prepared for any condition with streak-free windshield wiper blades and plenty of wiper fluid!

Because windshield wiper blades are made out of rubber, they will need to be replaced every 6 to 12 months for best performance. When they leave behind streaks on the windshield that impact your visibility, they should be replaced right away.

Even when it isn’t currently raining, you need to be able to clear off the mud and snow that splashes onto your windshield from other cars on the road.

Let’s face it – car windshields will get dirty. That’s why your car is equipped with windshield washer fluid.

This fluid helps keep your windshield free from dirt, debris, bugs, rain, and snow that cloud your visibility. Not only does this fluid clear away the dirt and debris, it also helps break up snow and ice.

To get windshield cleared faster while you are on the road, make sure you have plenty of windshield washer fluid.

You can check the windshield washer fluid level in your car yourself in your garage or at a gas station. The next time you are near S&S Research in Mukwonago, swing by and we’ll happily top off your windshield washer fluid.

If you fill your windshield washer fluid yourself, keep a few things in mind. First, not all windshield washer fluids are the same. You can buy ready to use fluid, concentrated liquids, and additives. Make sure to read the instructions carefully and purchase the right one for your vehicle.

When using a concentrated mixture or additive, be careful measuring the ratio of fluid to water. As temperatures drop across Wisconsin this winter, you don’t want water in the tank to freeze and block or break the reserve tank and nozzles.
