Re: OMG What a PONG!!!

If my memory serves me correctly I answered this problem a few years back.

Even with copious amounts of screen wash additive the problem may persist. You need to use something that will kill the pesky bugs and fungi. I had this problem with my Honda and after rinsing and cleaning the washer reservoir and adding scented washer additive (baked apple pie) it returned. But I was able to cure the problem for 99 pence the cost of baby bottle sterilising tablets (30 pack) from Boots chemist.

Disolve 3 or 4 tablets in hand hot water - add to the empty reservoir - leave to stand overnight - then rinse out the system. I have had no problem since.

Milton or sterilising solution as used for home brewing will do the same job.
