Valeo’s Clean4U is a revolutionary remote windshield defrosting and cleaning system that is controlled via a Smartphone application, the company says. Clean4U embeds two innovative functions: Defrosting, which automatically defrosts a windshield, engine off, in less than 90 seconds and Debugging, which washes away insects stuck to the windshield in less than 3 minutes.

Based on Valeo’s AquaBlade windshield wiper technology, Clean4U distributes through the blades an environmentally friendly defrosting or cleaning fluid.
