    Hi there,

    Ive heard people use things like Metholyted Spirits in there water along with washing up liquid of their choice.

    Does anyone here do that or use anything else??

    How does this effect the cleaning of the window apart from lowing the freezing point?

    I put a drop of anti freeze in my bucket in the winter. Has not made any difference to the windows & & last year seemed to work well but isn't a miracle worker. Windows still froze when really cold but it gave me a bit more scope.

    rarely needed but yh as you said it lowers the freezing point so stops the water freezing on the glass as much, shouldnt effect the quality of the clean tho imo
