Keeping your windshield clean and clear while you are driving is necessary, and there are many things that can get your car windows dirty. With everything from bugs, mud and other debris that can accumulate on your windshield and cause residue that makes it difficult to see while driving. And while most people will go out to the store and purchase some windshield washer fluid, making windshield wiper fluid is also another option you might try. There are great DIY ideas that you can make on your own. To make washer fluid, you just need to mix a gallon of water with about one tablespoon of dish soap and some ammonia or vinegar for the anti freeze. You can also add a few drops of food coloring so that you know what is inside the bottle. For the full step by step instructions for this easy DIY idea for windshield wiper fluid, you can look on the DIY and Crafts site.

To make this easy DIY idea for windshield wiper fluid you just need to mix up the ingredients in the right sized gallon jug and fill the reservoir of your vehicle whenever needed to help keep your windshield clean and clear. There are other DIY ideas and recipes that do not contain white vinegar. You can also mix rubbing alcohol with dish soap and enough water to fill a gallon jug. This diy idea works well too. Or, you can substitute vodka for the rubbing alcohol and instead of the dish soap, use liquid castile soap.

If you haven't used castile soap before, you'll be surprised at all the things you can use it for. Traditionally the term castile referred to a hard white soap that was made from olive oil. Castile soap was named for the Castile region of Spain where the soap was made only using olive oil. In recent times this term has also become more loosely defined as the pure vegetable-based soap which is void of any animal products. A pure olive oil soap makes a moisturizing soap, but that soap doesn’t lather well, so many soap makers find themselves using a different blend of oils which allows them to customize the properties of the soap better. Most castile soap that you find today is a blend of olive oil, castor oil, coconut oil, or any other commonly used vegetable oil. Castile soap can be made as either a hard bar soap or as a liquid soap.

You can use castile soap in a wide variety of homemade natural cleaners around the house. Castile soap can also be used in natural beauty products. One way to use this soap is a natural homemade all-purpose cleaner. This all-purpose cleaner can be used for grimy messes on the floor, in the bathroom, and on patio furniture, just to name a few. This all-purpose cleaner is very easy to make and less expensive than other natural cleaners. For mopping mix two tablespoons of liquid castile soap and one gallon of hot water in a bucket to help mop your floor. For hand washing dishes use a squirt of castile soap added to hot running water when you are filling the kitchen sink to wash dishes. This won’t bubble and suds up as a regular dish soap will, but the soap is still in there doing its job. For tough, stuck-on food, allow dishes to soak before you scrub them.
