Life hacks are precious and sometimes can actually be life saving, this is the reason why you need to have as manyup your sleev as you can. Knowing them is never going to hurt you and might only save you time, efforts and money. So here’s a list of some life hacks by AUTODOC CLUB that come to your aid at times of need.
De-Icing the door lock.
The first life hack if for you if you live in a cold area, and before anything with your car you first need to be able to get into it. But what if it is so cold that your car lock freezes over preventing you from getting inside your car in the first place. Well do not worry there is a hack that is as easy as A, B, C which help you get that door lock so that you can get in your car and carry out your day. Simply get a can of ‘WD 40’ push the nozzle in the key hole spray a few times and wait for a few minutes to De-Ice the car door lock.
What to do if the A/C is not working.
This can be dreading on a hot summer day and while opening all the windows may bring down the temp by a little it is best to open two windows that are diagonal to each other. This creates a rift of air that takes away the hot air from inside your vehicle away and keeps fresh breeze flowing in regulating the temperature all the while.
Wipers sticking to the windsheidl?
Nothing is more important than clear visibility when you’re behind the wheel. If you’re parking your car in snow or ice, make sure the wipers are in the upright position. This keeps them from adhering to the windscreen; driving in the cold can be challenging at times, and you need to be able to see well. And because you’ve probably experienced what it’s like to drive in subzero temperatures without sufficient visibility, keep this method in mind the next time you park your car outdoors in the cold, even if it’s only for a few hours.
Toothpast can help you shine other things than just your teeth.
Your vehicle’s headlights can become hazy over time; this needs to be addressed, but it’s not something that you should rush to the repair shop to fix right away. Using an agent, such as toothpaste, and a lot of scrubbing, you can try to restore them. After a thorough cleaning, your headlights will look as if they just strolled out of the showroom.
Need a rain repellant? Make one at home.
All that you need is about a cup of laundry rinse and about half a liter of water, mix the two together and voila you have a concoction that works like magic against the rain. Put this in a spray bottle and spray thoroughly over the vehicle. This effectively creates a film over the surface of the car that repells water.
