Your money just does not seem to go as far these days. Anything that will make your life a little easier is appreciated. So, let’s look at three easy car care hacks that will save you both time and money.
De-icing Car Locks
The morning is cold. You are rushing to work. You get out our keys only to find that your lock is frozen! Nothing is more frustrating. Here is a simple fix. Make sure to have a bottle of hand sanitizer handy. The alcohol in the sanitizer will quickly melt any ice on frozen handles and lock. Squirt a little on the lock or handle and you will be on your way in no time!
Floor Mat Escape
Word of advice. Buy quality rubber floor mats. A good floor mat can get you out of rather sticky situations. Getting stuck in the mud or snow is a real drag. Make sure not to spin your wheels when you initially get stuck. Spinning your tires will create a deeper rut. Wedge your rubber floor mats under your tires and crawl your way out.
Keep A Log
Keeping a repair log will save you both time and money. You will be able to track your scheduled maintenance and any repairs. Write down the dates, the actual repairs completed, and the cost. Planning scheduled check-ups can prevent expensive repairs. Keeping a log will act as a reminder to schedule a vehicle check-up.
