I have used vinegar to clean the glass but have never tried it in the washer bottle.
Anyone given it a trial?

Pete.

Vinegar is a mild acid. I wouldn't do it.

It is a mild acid but it would be diluted quite a bit wouldn't it?

Anyway, I got the Rain-X Washer Fluid from Wallyworld and I think it was $2.50. I have never had it freeze up in all the very bitter cold weather we had and it really cleans the windshield 10x better than the cheap stuff so I use much less of it. So in the long run it is actually cheaper for me to use it.

Just my experience with it.

Do you notice your wiper blades lasting significantly longer when using the Rain-X fluid as well?

Yes, now that you mention it, I think so. I still have the windshield OEM ones on and they still work well with no streaking. My pig is 3 1/2 years old and the blades are still wiping clear with no drama. I have put nothing but the Rain-X fluid in it from when it was new. Although I did replace the rear blade as it was streaking.

I've had the current set of blades on my truck for at least 2 years, and no streaking as well. I've been using Rain-X fluid in it since I bought it 4 or 5 years ago.
