15 Insanely Cool Car Hacks You Should Try Out


A majority of adults drive cars, so why not make the trip from point A to point B — and the upkeep of your car — a little bit easier?

No, these tips and tricks won’t make you a certified mechanic or magically eliminate those people who can’t seem to exert enough energy to slightly lift one finger and use their turn signal, but they can make general upkeep and travel a little bit less stressful.

1. If you travel with your kids, you can use a shower organizer to help you keep essential supplies.

2. To cool down your car quickly, just fully open one of the front windows, then open and close the door on the opposite side of the car several times.

3. A carefully chosen nail polish can make a small scratch on the body of your car almost invisible. Transparent polish is an effective, if temporary, way of fighting cracks on the windshield.

4. If you’re concerned that a mechanic might try to exaggerate the problems with your car, just ask them questions about parts that you’re certain are working correctly.

5. If you want to get rid of old car stickers, you can soak a piece of newspaper in warm water, and place it on the sticker for ten minutes.

6. You can use anti-bacterial hand gel to help defrost a frozen lock. Squeeze a pea-sized amount onto your finger and wipe it over the lock, making sure that it goes directly onto the keyhole.

7. A paper coffee cup with a lid works well as a way to store paper towels or a handkerchief.

8. You can use an ordinary rubber band to make a simple holder for your smartphone

9. You can use a sealable food container as a trash can

10. If you only recently got your driver's license and driving your car is still new to you, here’s a great trick for parking your car in the garage. Hang up a tennis ball or a bright, colorful toy in the spot where you need to stop the car.

11. You would never have guessed, but ordinary toothpaste is a great alternative to costly cleaning fluids for your car headlights. Squeeze some onto an old toothbrush or a cloth, and rub it vigorously onto the headlights. Wash it off with water.

12. A paintbrush works really well for cleaning the dust out of hard-to-reach areas in your car.

13. We borrowed this trick from pilots. If the sun is blinding you, use a thin plastic sheet to screen it out. It will stick to the windshield thanks to static electricity.

14. For those who own narrow garages, try out this life hack: attach a foam strip along the wall. This will reduce the risk of scratching the car doors when getting in and out of your automobile.

15. In case of unforeseen problems, always carry a survival kit in your car — an old-fashioned, reliable cell phone or a spare phone battery; a supply of water and food; warm clothes or a blanket; a first aid kit.

Drive safe!!!
