    is there an underlying issue??

    we had a customer with stinky washers - replaced tank - replaced pipes
    finally the pump packed up
    we found the degraded remains of a dead mouse - namely the skull jamming the pump blades

    any signs of furry rodents in yr bonnet

    Dunno, its never gone off in mine. Have you tried some sterident - sp? - tabs to help clean the bottle out?

    Could also try Milton sterilizing tablets after rinsing out the bottle. Worked for me.

    i bleached mine out after it was steam cleaned, may sound sad but could it be more to do with the water rather than the actual screen wash solution?
    p.s as above there's no sign of any dead mice,rats,hamsters,hedgehogs etc... under the bonnet or in the screen wash bottle.
