We don't have very cold winters but I use Dawn for window cleaning every time. Dawn never fails. But all dish soaps work.

I usually use denatured alcohol. It is more expensive than washer fluid, however, it leaves a cleaner window. Washer fluid contains very cheap soap which will leave a film on the window.

Be careful with windshield wiper fluid, as it contains methyl alcohol. Methyl alcohol is much more toxic than isopropyl acohol. It's just a lot cheaper, so many window cleaners use it. If you are going to add it to your cleaning solution, I would read up on it to see if there are any safety precautions you should take. I personally would use isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) instead.
