Every motorist drew attention to the fact that the liquid for washing car windows has a characteristic color. Moreover, for different products, the color can be quite different. And therefore, it is just right to ask the logical question: is it worth paying attention to him at all? Can the color of the "wash" really indicate the quality of a particular fluid?
Most drivers in our country still try to use special liquids for washing windows while driving, and not ordinary water. You can buy "omyvayka" both at gas stations and in special car stores. Of course, some motorists, in an attempt to save money, do not shy away from cooking it themselves from improvised means, or even buying it from sellers in the market or even on the side of the road. Of course, liquids from different manufacturers differ in their quality. However, if you forget this important difference for a second, then all the remaining difference will be reduced only to the color of technical solutions.
In fact, "washer" can have almost any color. The most common liquids on the market are red, orange, green, blue and yellow. From the point of view of the quality of the liquid, its color has no effect. In fact, the glass cleaner is transparent. The desired color is achieved by adding a special dye to the solution. This is done to achieve three main goals.
The first is to visualize the scent (so that the color and smell of the solution match). This is done for purely marketing reasons. The second goal is to indicate the temperature regime. Many manufacturers sell fluids for different seasons: winter, summer, fall and spring. Thus, for ease of identification, they add different dyes to the compositions for different seasons. Finally, the third goal is to facilitate maintenance: the need to make the "wash" corny different in color from antifreeze.
