Guy Turns Car Windshield Wiper Fluid Spray Into Drink Dispenser

Do you get thirsty on long car rides? Daniel Tillotson does, and wanted to safely enjoy a beverage without taking his hands off the wheel. So he modified the mechanism that sprays wiper fluid onto his Subaru’s windshield to spray kombucha directly into his mouth while he’s driving. This is the hero we need folks.

It isn’t perfect. Not all of it gets in his mouth, but it’s a start. Using a suction cup mount, he relocated the washer fluid’s spray nozzle to the inside of the car’s windshield, but that was one of the easier parts of the hack. I hear ya. “Won’t he die from the leftover wiper fluid?”

No. We hope not. Windshield wiper fluid contains 30 to 50 percent methanol, which is very poisonous. It can blind you, kill your kidneys, and kill you. So Tillotson repeatedly flushed the wiper fluid tank in his Subaru with clean water to make sure it was as clean as possible before filling it with potable liquids. If you ask me, that’s still taking a chance. I wouldn’t do it. I would have started with a new wiper fluid tank.

Anyway, this is a hack that we can all appreciate during the hot summer.
