Recipe by Penny Stettinius

I posted another homemade recipe for windshield cleaning fluid but that is for "most weather". This is the combination for those of you living in freezing temps., something we in the Deep South hardly ever have to worry about. Both combinations are made from household products you probably already have in your pantries. You can make it without the vinegar but that cuts the grime. And you can add a dash of food coloring, too.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 7 cups water
  • 3 cups non-sudsing ammonia
  • 3 tablespoons vinegar


  1. Mix all ingredients in a large jug.
  2. Using a funnel, pour the fluid into the wiper cleaning fluid container under the hood of your car.
  3. Be careful not to splash any into your eyes.
