I have used VW screen wash for years - really nice fragrance and superb cleaning at a reasonable price - tried others but always end up going back to the VW one

The colouring is a good point, what I initially found did have vivid colouring in the liquid but the vendor sells the same product as well with no colouring.

The fragrances I've been looking at are in a base liquid / emulsion that's mostly Glycol / IPA / and other "ols", so pretty much what you'd find in a screenwash anyhow when you look at their SDS so all should be OK.

Same here in that any fragrance is only a brief hit so I'd like it to be a little stronger, also I've found that the fragrance strength degrades pretty quickly once in the washer reservoir (as I'm assuming it's then exposed to the air and will evaporate off?) so I'd like to be able to top it up.

All of this is just a nice to have / me playing around, however my commute is down some filthy country roads and I use so much screenwash.

I'm going to buy some when I get paid and play around with it outside of the car first to see how it reacts.
