Why is Windshield Wiper Fluid Important?

When you make a long drive, there's a good chance that you'll end up with some bugs or other organic matter on your windshield. To clean your windshield effectively, you will need to use windshield wiper fluid. If you have heard that water makes a good replacement, this is not true. Let the Galleria BMW service team in D’Iberville, MS explain.

Water does not contain any cleaning ingredients to help clean the windshield. While water may work well on a small smudge, actual windshield wiper fluid is necessary for tougher stains and marks. During the winter, temperatures plummet. This is another reason to avoid using water. Water will freeze. Windshield wiper fluid is designed to resist freezing at low temperatures, so it will still work during the winter.

If you have any questions about windshield wiper fluid and why it should not be substituted for water, feel free to give the auto service team at Galleria BMW a call or swing by to visit us. Our staff would love to help you out.
