Most any should work, even plain water if you won't be seeing freezing temperatures (but many of the fluids help to clean the windshield better than plain water). Plain water in freezing temps will damage things and could get expensive!

Some areas , depending on the temperatures that seasons will bring , will sell a summer mix that helps clean off bug splat etc. and a winter mix that contains an antifreeze ingredient .

Thank you. That help a lot . I was shock when the manual mention anti freeze. I live in Hawaii so I guess that didn’t apply to me.
