    This is such a ridiculous question but I really can't find it anywhere... o.O

    In Portugal, I can go to any supermarket or auto shop (Halford equivalent for instance) and I can get a liquid that i can put, for it to shoot on the windscreen) and that's it.

    Here, I've look on supermarkets and Halfords and nothing..

    Could anyone please tell me where to get it from?

    Thanks

    All I see/saw were the shampoos and such. Not anything to put on the windscreen "tank" (I don't know whats the proper word for that)

    Just ask the staff for windscreen washer fluid and they should be able to take you to the correct section of the store.

    Or just use water with a dash of antifreeze.

    Yes, because that's superb advice... /sarcasm.

    Don't know why this is troubling you so much because all the supermarkets and motoring outlets around me have piles of the stuff everywhere...

    My personal preference is is blue Prestone, but you'll only get that at Costco, so not the best for you. Just nip by Halfords and pick up some of their own brand stuff; it's not bad.

    It works

    It's not ideal, but if they're having so much trouble finding any (quite why they're having trouble I've no idea, like you I'm puzzled by that), then at least it's something which is better than nothing.

    Sure, and it destroys their paintwork and windscreen seals whilst they're at it...

    Virtually every petrol station in my area sells it.

    Also have you been inside the shops? I can walk into costco and get it but can't seem to get it from them online.
