    That's normal, Malcolm. It's when you're young twice that the problems start. ;)

    Great tip about the vinegar. Though might leave you with smelly fingers ... :rolleyes:

    I think my screenwash bottle is 6 litres - imagine the cost of 4 parts vodka, 3 parts water and a dash of washing up liquid! I bought 4l bottles of screenwash good for -60C - ISTR in Lidl last winter - for about 4 quid, cut it 1:1 it's still good for -30.

    1975-8 in the RAF in Germany people put vodka in their washer bottles as it was so cheap in the NAAFI.
