It has emerged in the news this week that the water in your windscreen washers may be the cause of 20% of cases of Legionnaire’s disease in Britain. Research from the Health Protection Agency found that ‘stagnant, warm water’ is a breeding ground for the bacteria, the same bacteria which causes Pneumonia. The research also showed that professional drivers are 5 times more likely to be infected than the average driver!
Tip of the week? Add screen wash! The purpose-built cleaner will kill the bacteria…leaving your washer safe to use. Not only is it safer than normal water, it makes your windscreen cleaner too! It’s a no-brainer really!
