Wow, that old Saturn I used to own would spray me in the arm/ face if the window was cracked and I hit the WW switch.

I think how long it water/fluid stays in a reservoir may have something to do with it. I used mine regularly.

    Anything growing in my washer fluid reservoirs is probably pretty happy. I fill my own, and add a pint of 92% rubbing alcohol to the mix. Par-TAY time!
    Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.
