Default Window Washin' Fluid

Down here in the Sovereign South the EPA says we can only purchase fluid only rated against freeze at 20 degrees, which means we buy water with a tablespoon or so of Glycol. Needless to say it don't clean squat. Yea you can wash off dust or pollen, but forget about road grime or bug juice. In the good old days when we could buy what you guys north of Mason Dixon use, not so much an issue. So has anyone have a home brew that actually works that is safe on paint, glass and hoses, etc? Or better yet, any boot-leggers that can get us the -20 or -30 degree stuff?

Add white vinegar - not much. Iso alcohol might help with drying streak free as well.

I add 16oz of rubbing alcohol everytime I fill up the window washer tank. The alcohol does a great job cleaning the windshield and removing bugs too.
