Default Intercooler Water Spray

My intercooler water spray bottle froze up last weekend.

What, if anything, can I add to the water to stop this happening again.

TIA

I was trying think of way around problem as if you add anti freeze the fumes off the intercooler will gas you out. So alcohol don't freeze plus smell nice, and if copper plus you over be funny way of explaining why your car smells of vodka lol

Apart from the smell, anti freeze won't do your paintwork any favours.

+1 to what tony said.My Evo used to share the ic spray with the screen wash anyway.
Something I used a couple of times is the Braun clean and renew fluid.My shaver died on me and I had a few tubs left.After dipping my finger in it and blowing on my finger,it's like instant ice.
It was in the summer so it worked pretty good.
