    I use the Rain-X brand washer fluid... it doesn't freeze and does a good job. Walmart usually has it.

    Just plain old Purple Splash.

    Splash Windshield Washer Fluid, 1 Gal. 234192-T35 | Zoro.com

    It claims -25*.

    I have never had it freeze.

    You can also use it in your tires on your garden tractor (with blade or snowblower) for extra weight / ballast (though RimGuard (beet juice) and RV antifreeze are heavier per gallon).

    I use regular washer fluid, then toss in a bottle of rubbing alcohol from the Dollar Store. Still liquid at -20F I believe...

    +3! The added Rain-X in the washer fluid helps alot, at highway speed I don't need the wipers at all.

    Yup, Rain-X. Get it at Wally like the others above. Never had a freeze issue with it, and it works great.
