DOT 3 AND DOT 4 BRAKE FLUID IS “HYDROSCOPIC”

It can be “DISPERSED” without the need for expensive cleaners.

Just off the boil water will remove brake fluid.

JUST A QUICK TIP.

PLEASE READ THE ITEM BY OTTOMAN FIRST


I SHOULD HAVE THOUGHT THAT "DOT5" SHOULD STILL WASH AWAY AS IT BEADS. I CAN NOT BE 100% SURE NOW!!!!

What's in a word

My tin of Brake fluid says HYGROSCOPIC. Is this the same as HYDROSCOPIC or are we playing with words? DOT5 brake fluid is silicone based and does not absorb water but that doesn't mean you can't get water in the braking system.:)
