Screen Wash as a body deicer

Just had a thought, on the basis that screen wash is plentiful after dillution is it possible to use screen wash as a deicer on the main car body and windows?

Not something i would recommend,screenwash is quite aggressive,in order to remove grime from your windscreen,if used on bodywork i would imagine it could strip any wax protection etc,dont do it mate.
