Screenwash

Been working hard recently trying to get my windscreen clean. Now that I'm starting to get there, I got to thinking about the screenwash I use and does it make a difference?

So many varied brands available from the cheap stuff you buy at the local supermarket to the more expensive stuff you can get through most of the detailing stores.

Any help or advice would be most welcome.

used angelwax clarity and it smeared real bad, my windscreen did not like it at all. on top of angelwax h2go glass sealant and without.

using autoglym ultimate screen wash now and its awesome. doesnt cause any white marks on the trim etc and is wax safe
free delivery here http://www.autoglym-online.co.uk/sho...te-screenwash/

alien magic clear view sounds like good stuff, but never tried it, see what adrian on here says in the alien magic section

I tried Clarity two years ago and noticed same smearing problem. I changed
to Autoglym Super Strength Screenwash Concentrate and it works very well

Sounds like your wipers have had it, seriously though did you follow the dilution ratios or just chuck some of it in?.SJ.

The best stuff I've found is Sonax Xtreme Nano Pro Screenwash. Very very concentrated and brilliant in all conditions.

That's what went gloopy in my bottle.
Granted it works well, but be careful if you have a BMW!
There is no anti bacterial in it, so bacteria can form and block the filter.
I think probably more of a BMW issue, than a generic one.

I use BMW fluid now, from BMW direct of eBay.
