    The water will rarely freeze"instantly" so if your wfp, maybe try trad?

    Im not sure about WFP, Trad its about -3 / -4. Theres ways round it though, add anti freeze or methanol to the water

    No no no nooo don't use anti freeze or methonol!

    Anti freeze wouldnt be good for cleaning!

    I add screen wash with ecover (pink suff goes down to -9) seems to a good job cleans properly as thats what its ment for!

    It doesn't make a difference to be honest, the only way it would, if there was any water left on the windows it would dry on the window and leave a mark just like soap

    Why not methanol?
