Today is supposed to be one of the coldest days & nights since 1957 here. Right now it's -10* w/a windchill. Tonight it's supposed to hit that without the wind.
The same day of the anti-freeze experiment I was wiping off my headlights so I could see better at night. I went inside to get a dry towel, and I kid you not, I came back out under a minute later it it was already frozen solid.
I would pour some of the de-icer brand washer fluid (not just antifreeze) in and let the car warm up. Maybe hold a lighter near the nozzles to thaw them as well. But after driving around for say 20min the engine temp should have heated up the washer fluid tank enough that it can push it's way through the tubing. I use the Prestone stuff, looks like lemon/lime Gatorade.
