I am a remodeling contractor in the north woods of Wisconsin, and with the onset of winter comes a scramble to get the items subject to freezing out of my truck and unheated shop. I do a lot of cleaning in my work, and I always have a squirt bottle with a cleaning solution in my truck. I have discovered that windshield-washing fluid makes a great winter cleaning solution. It works as a good all-purpose cleaner and won’t freeze and rupture my squirt bottle.
