Ok, one silly question.

What is distilled water? For screen wahser and wiper manual says to put 90% distilled water and 10% of some liquid SP30 or SP35 (i don't remember correctly).
Where can i find distilled water? In normal shop?
Or can we use normal water?

Distilled water is available in some petrol pumps i think.I usually use normal water for my wiper washer.
I think they asked you to use distilled water because distilled water is pure and cleaner than normal water.

It doesn't makes much difference to use the Distilled Water. Just use the Normal Water or you can even Try the Soap Water.

Distill water is nothing but pure water like , even without mineral .
heat a normal water , collect the vapor and cool them to make them water again.

No point in using the distill water in wiper wash. it may keep the system clean without any sediments and algae like thing(greenish formation)

It avail in all spare shops and in petrol pump -also in battery shops

cost here is 1L can cost 9.50/-
5L can is 40/-

Use these for mixing with coolant , to top up battery water.

if the battery water is too low we must use acid mixed water , it helps to keep the charge for longer duration.

when using Only distilled water for battery the charge disperse in faster rate , good for regular running car.

Has anyone tried washing his wind-shield with Soda??
It leaves a great shine.
Did it the first time when I had no option, and found the results amazing.
