1. Use toothpaste to clean your headlights
No sand machines needed. You can use an old toothbrush or soft cloth and toothpaste to buffer those headlights up! Not only will your car look fresher, but you’ll actually be able to see at night again.
2. Use a staple remover to add/ remove keys on your keychain.
FINALLY. After all those years of broken nails, I really needed this one.
3. Hang a tennis ball at the back of your garage roof as a parking guide
I’m surprised other people had this idea. My dad used this hack in our garage growing up, after my mom kept driving the car right into the trash can. Never a problem after that!
5. Mesh bungee net for extra storage
Need extra storage for travel? Use the ceiling handles in your car to attach a mesh bungee net. Great for storing your jackets and bags. Or if your like me, it’s a perfect spot for all my snacks.
6. De-ice a car door lock with hand sanitizer
Being stuck outside in the ice cold sucks. You’re trying to get to work and your car lock is frozen. Great. Now your snot is going to freeze to your nose and your fingers are about to fall off. Panic no more. Hand sanitizer really does he trick.. the high alcohol content breaks the ice down, and the squirt bottle lets you get it right into the lock. Voolah! Now your going to need it for that runny nose!
7. Buff your car with hair conditioner
Need that shine ? Give your car a glow and prevent water streaks by waxing it with conditioner.
