Is there a way to drain windshield fluid?

As it turns out, the new windshield fluid that I put it is made for winter driving. It is full of salt. It leaves salt residue all over the car. Is there a way to drain the fluid other than running the wipers?

Maybe disconnect the hose from the motor/pump that leads to the wipers? I really don't know if it would drain by itself. I really don't know if there is a drain on these bottles.

Here's one way to do it: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=558259

Also, like Eric said, you could disconnect the line from the nozzles and route it into a bucket. Then, go in the car and activate the sprayers.

Just spray until the bottle is empty, it'll take a minute

Depenting on how the motor is and how often he uses it, he could burn it and have to replace it.
