Question winter doing HIPRs?

Was curious..We are in WA. state and dont usually get severe winter freezing..We, like everyone else, have lately. How do you guys in cold climate areas, midwest, northeast and such places, actually clean the interiors when theres no heat in these places. Our cleaning sprays were freezing on the counter tops..lol

Use blue windshield washer fluid instead of windex.

we use RV Antifreeze

Good friend (Tom) mopped a floor a few years back and there was a few frozen areas left over on the vinyl flooring..... He left and the Property Inspector came by a couple hours later and slipped and broke his elbow.

Couldn't really prove how that ice got there..... He contended the inspector probably never wiped the snow off his shoes SINCE the pictures that were provided at the lawsuit discovery process showed snow tracks on the carpets from the front door....

You save all the rubbing alcohol you find all year

use it to mix your cleaning solutions,and spray it on freeze prone surfaces, and keep your water use to a minimum on floors, a good dust mop works wonders.

I normally do too, but the 6 gallons I left in the back of my truck were all frozen solid during this last storm, and the thermometer next to them was only at -12!

That scares me. . .I have that stuff in my RV, boat and Waverunners

Iíve already told you more than I know.
