Exclamation Windshield Washer Fluid Resevoir Temperature

Today I went to fix the hoses leading from the washer fluid reservoir to the headlight washers in my duaghter's 89 300TE. The car had just been driven around town running some errands.

When the windshield washer fluid came out of the hose it was HOT Not hot enough to scald my hand, but hot enough to be uncomfortable!

I never realized that the heating element heated the washer fluid to such high temperature. Next time I'll be more careful!!!
