Fixing A Dent With Hot Water & A Plunge

Does your car have a ding on the side? Don’t be concerned! We’ve got your back! Dents are fairly common, and contrary to popular belief, they are relatively simple to repair.

All you have to do is boil some water in a teapot or saucepan, pour it over the dent, and pull the plunger. If the car’s body isn’t badly damaged, the dent should pop right out; it won’t look as good as it did before, but it will be less noticeable.

Dirty Headlights And Toothpaste

Dirty Headlights And Toothpaste

Don’t rush to the nearest auto store for a special solution if your headlights are foggy! You might already have a solution to your problem at home.

Because toothpaste contains mild abrasives that clean enamel, it turns out that it works just as well on headlights as it does on teeth.

With a little toothpaste and elbow grease, your headlights can be as clear as day again! (As a side note, this might not always work.) If the inside is yellowing, you may want to consider replacing it.)

Use Nail Polish On Small Scratches

It’s usually not worth the money to have your car’s paint professionally repaired when it gets a small scratch or chip. Of course, the disadvantage is that your vehicle will be covered in unsightly scratches.

We’re sure you had no idea you could do it yourself! It only takes a smidgeon of nail polish. If the paint on your car is close enough to match, a little nail polish will hide the scratches well enough that no one will notice them unless they are looking for them.Use Nail Polish On Small Scratches

De-Ice Your Keyholes With Hand Sanitizers

If you’ve ever had frozen car door locks, you know how difficult it can be to unfreeze them. The answer is hand sanitizer, which you may not have guessed.

You Can Use Rubber Bands As Phone Holders

It’s extremely inconvenient when you need to look at your GPS but don’t have a co-pilot to hold it up for you or one of those windows or air vent holders to hold your phone (and potentially dangerous). Using a rubber band to achieve the same result is actually quite simple.

If you loop it through a couple of vents in your center console and around the top and bottom of your phone, the tension will keep it in place.You Can Use Rubber Bands As Phone Holders

Easy Way To Cool Down A Hot Car

To expedite the process, roll down the passenger side window and open and close the driver’s side door quickly for a few seconds. This creates a fanning effect, allowing fresh air to enter while removing all of your vehicle’s hot, stale air.Easy Way To Cool Down A Hot Car

Dryer Sheets As Air Freshener

Air fresheners that last only a few days, such as clip-on or over-the-mirror air fresheners, are a waste of money. A box of dryer sheets lasts much longer, is less noticeable, and absorbs odors effectively. They’re available in scented or unscented versions, and they’ll keep your car smelling fresh for months.Dryer Sheets As Air Freshener

Get More Gas From The Pump

Although it may appear to be a simple task, there is a better way to pump gas than simply going full throttle. If you just press the gas pump all the way down, bubbles will form in your tank, fooling the nozzle into thinking it’s full. In reality, there is still room for more gas; you just need to go slower.

If Your Tires Blows, DON’T Brake

This isn’t so much a hack as it is a great piece of advice; if your tire blows out while driving at least 65 km/h on a straight road, do not stop. Even though it may be instinctive, try to resist the urge.

Why do you ask? If you hit the brakes, you’ll fishtail and possibly lose control of your vehicle, which could result in a collision with anything. You should instead keep your foot on the gas pedal. Isn’t that strange?

We understand, but this will assist you in regaining control of your vehicle and maintaining a straight line on the road. It should only take a few seconds.Screenshot 9

Don’t Weigh Down Your Key

This is more of a warning than a hack. The ignition switch can be damaged by having too many keys or cute keychains. That is, your car will not start as easily as it should over time. Experts recommend having no more than three keys or keychains in your bunch.
