Winter might be many months off, but now’s the time to think about iced-over windows: before they become iced over. Heated Wash from AlphaTherm will heat the fluid in your car’s windshield-washer reservoir to quickly melt ice and snow from your field of vision. AlphaTherm also states that insect residue, bird droppings and assorted road grime are also more easily and thoroughly wiped away with heated washer fluid, which is another reason to dive in now as opposed to later. Installation is a relatively simple process, as evidenced by the video clip on the company’s Web site. The Heated Wash is priced at $100 and can be ordered through www.alphathermusa.com.
