Default kind of a wierd question

is it ok to use water instead of washer fluid? cause i use mine alot and its mostly just washing dust off the window, and this thing seems to just chug down the fluid so id like to be able to use water. also, is it ok to mix water and washer fluid?

I only use water in the warmer months so it doesn't freeze during winter

Get the orange stuff, it smells good!!

But straight water is fine if it'll do the trick for you. I would recommend against Windex, Peanut Butter, or any kind of meat tho....
