Why can we just put an acrylitic sheet when we park so steering wont heat up

Most of the "tricks" I thought were common knowledge. Others are ridiculous. Oh...Im getting sleepy. Good thing I brought this lemon. If ya have to stop for the lemon just get some coffee. Shout out to the silicone cupcake wrapper in the cup holder, but I'm sure there are some cars that the cup holder is a ring and has no bottom.

The Potato is not the best. Toothpaste is. Saw a guy test it on Youtube. All kinds of home solutions for antifog and toothpaste wins, hands down over anything. Just don't rub it in, cause the abrasives are not good for glass or plastics over time. Smear it on wipe it off. Stomps all other antifog.

If you do not have time or temporarily short of cash - open car window slightly. This will prevent heat built up and the pressure cracking the windscreen at a much faster rate.

If you drive a manual with a black shift knob, put a sock or hat over it when left in the sun, it helps from burning your hand. Also, if you have a disposable coffee cup that has a lid that doesn't have one of those little sealing tabs, i find that 5 large coffee mixing straws fit in there perfectly (first install 3 then the other two behind them) this will keep 99% of coffee spills from happening on the road

Love your vlogs; I thank you for them. One question: when you showed the potato trick to eliminate frosting windows, you showed use of the unpeeled side. Wouldn’t you use the cut side for this hack? TIA for your reply.

Tip 17 - use a good shampoo to avoid having your hair messed up by wind. Tip 18 - wash your teeth as the are critical when driving and can work as light reflectors in low-light situations. Tip 19- keep something to eat in your car. A hungry stomach is always a potential distraction. Tip 20 - use a good wax for your boots as its essential to let air flow smoothly around them when pushing the pedals. Tip 21 - have a laser guided missile launcher. Just in case a war breaks out, out of the blue. Tip 22 - using the right perfume can affect your attention and relaxation while driving. So be sure to be aware of what you are spraying. Tip 23 - look out for bugs in your car as the can be a distraction while driving.

i don't trust the potato one. I don't want to have a dirty windscreen afterwards, full of lines from the potato starch. All the rest are just idiotic on their own, especially the one about turning your wheel upsidedown
CrazyLegs (23 days ago)
14. use a simple reflective sunshade card.13. you have a little cover right above the steering wheel, the sunviser there is. 2. use the AC

Well done, really useful hacks - thank you and don't care about bad comments :-)
TheShiphoo (28 days ago)
So let's just be clear - if you park your car with your wheel turned, if someone were to rear-end you, your car could end up on the sidewalk or worse: the road.

Water does *not* dissolve in oil. But you *can* tell if your engine isn't burning all the gas going in. Look at the edges of the oil spot. If the edge looks like the paper's turning see-through, sort of like parchment, you've got problems.

I disagree with #11 ... NEVER LEAVE your parking ticket inside your car unless you want your vehicle to be stolen much easier from the parking lot. Better keep it inside your wallet .

Wouldn't the potato stain your window with starch lol

A better solution for hot steering wheels is to use a front window shade, or put a towel over the steering wheel. Unless you don't know how to drive, you'll have to use the whole steering wheel when backing out of a parking space and it's going to be hot somewhere on the wheel unless you shade it somehow!
Kieran Jackson (1 month ago)
When you are waiting to turn left... NEVER sit with your front wheels turned. Instead, leave them pointed straight ahead. In the terrible event you get rear-ended, the momemtum of the car that hit you will push you forward. As opposed to to pushing you in the left turn direction and into oncoming traffic.

The Duder (1 month ago)
Forced to inquire. How are car "hacks" driving "hacks"? Yes, one drives a car. But all of these have nothing to do with actual driving, as the title misleadingly suggests. The misleading title is not necessary. This channel is well known. People will watch because it was posted on this channel. You can be honest with the titles.

Prevent window fogging by turning on a combination of the heat and air conditioning. The air conditioner will dehumidify the air. This will also dry your clothes that get wet from walking through rain.

You forgot if you use a turn signal people will know which way you're turning.

Sorry chaps, small correction: R is for 'RE-ENTRY if you've driven too fast and go into low earth orbit, whack it into R and it will prevent you burning up, hope that helps, cheers John.

When I use magnet to stick my smartphone on car front, it holds on but may drop after sometime. So, I added in "removable adhesive", a kind of gum-like glue but removable, and helps it to stay on more solidly.

My dad taught me this. Blinded by headlamps coming at you? Don't look at them. Look instead at the kerb (or white lane line, yellow road side lines etc down to your left UK, right US etc) . This way the most sensitive part of your eye isn't being compromised by light, it's looking away (at the kerb). The bright light is now in the corner of your eye! You can track the road much easier. Of course, get your eyes back on the road as soon as the blinding light has gone.

Driving hack #17 To avoid being distracted NEVER EVER allow children in the vehicle when you're driving. 😁
Kimm 65 (1 month ago)
That advice about turning your steering wheel to avoid burning your fingers on a sunny day is especially for that idiot who forgets that they need to straighten the steering wheel before they take off. 🤣 Driving hack #1 If you fix the shower organiser to the seat in front of you how is that going to benefit the kids in the back seats. And in what vehicle pray tell is there a seat in front of the driver's seat & the seat parallel to it????????
