By Redaction – on in Tricks
These tips will make your life easier while driving if you're the type of person who thinks cleaning or parking your car is a chore.

The wisdom accumulated by experienced drivers around the world could help you overcome some of these irritating car related problems that we all experience and make driving more comfortable and enjoyable.

Here are 15 practical tips from BrightSide that will be useful for novice and experienced drivers.

1 For those who travel with their children

Kickvick

You can use a travel shower organizer to store your children’s essentials and place the caddy behind a car seat. You won’t be spending precious minutes searching through your car for sunscreen, diapers or a baby bottle since they will all be neatly arranged in the travel shower organizer.


2 How to quickly cool down your car

Complex

First, open one of the car windows then open and close the door on the opposite side a few times. This will drive the hot air out of the car.


3 How to get rid of scratches

Angie’s List

A clear nail polish can make a small scratch on the car almost disappear. Clear nail polish is an effective, but temporary way, of fixing scratches on the windshield. Apply 2-3 coats, which will prevent the scratch from getting bigger the time it takes to make an appointment at your local garage.


4 If you don’t trust what your mechanic is telling you

If you’re not sure whether your mechanic is trying to exaggerate the problems related to your car, just ask him/her questions about the car parts you know work fine.


5 How to remove car stickers

Soak some newspaper in lukewarm water and place it on the stickers you want to remove for 10 minutes.


6 What to do if your lock is frozen

Yellow Pages

You can use antibacterial gel to help de-ice your frozen car lock. Place a bit of gel on your finger and wipe your finger back and forth on the lock, making sure your finger goes directly on the keyhole. The gel contains alcohol which will make the ice melt faster. You can also apply some gel directly on your key.


7 A simple way to store paper towels

Twenty-Two Words

A paper coffee cup with its lid is a great way to stock paper towels or tissues.


8 How to make a simple phone holder

You can use a normal rubber band and insert it in the ventilation hatch to create a simple phone holder.


9 Keep your car clean

Complex

You can use a sealed food container as your car garbage.


10 For those who think it is still difficult to park properly

Buzzhand

If you just recently got your driver’s licence and driving a car is still stressful and new to you, here is a great tip to park your car properly in your garage. Tie a tennis ball or a bright toy where you need to stop your car. This will help you understand your car’s dimensions and will prevent you from going further than you’re supposed to go.


11 Clean your headlights

Nairaland

You will never have guessed but ordinary toothpaste is an excellent alternative for the usual expensive store-bought headlight cleaner. Scrub the toothpaste with an old toothbrush or a microfiber cloth and then rinse with water.


12 Clean the difficult to reach zones

The Krazy Coupon Lady

A brush works really well to clean dust from difficult to reach places in your car, like your ventilation traps.


13 Protecting yourself from the sunlight

Life Hack

This tip is borrowed from pilots. If the sun is blinding you, use a thin plastic sheet to cover your windshield. These sheets can be stuck to the windshield thanks to static electricity. You can easily find screens like this in grocery stores. You can also use colourful film used in greenhouses but you’ll need tape to keep it in place.


14 How to protect car doors from scratches

Steer

Those with narrow garages, try this trick: fix pool noodles along the walls. This will help reduce the risk of scratching your car when you get in and out of your vehicle.


15 How to be ready for any situation

Maximum Survival

In case of unforeseen problems, always have a survival kit in your car: a functional and reliable flip phone or a spare cell phone battery, water, non-perishable food, warm clothes or a blanket and a first aid kit.
