Some of us are pretty fond of our cars. To some people their car is like a person. They give them a name, baby them, and take good care of them. Some people even talk to them.

1. Use toothpaste to shine your headlights

This surprising household staple is very effective in shining headlights. Simply buff the headlight with toothpaste smeared on a soft cloth, and it’ll look brand new in minutes!

2. Cool a car down instantly without turning on the A/C

Your car can feel like an oven on a hot day, particularly if you don’t park in shaded areas. There’s a trick to cooling it down quickly. Roll down one window, and open and close the door on the other side five to six times. The hot air escapes through the door you’re opening and closing, while the cool air enters through the window on the other side. What’s great about this trick is that you’re not wasting any gas by blasting the A/C.

3. Use a rubber band to hold your phone up

4. Put your car key fob on your chin to increase range

If you can’t find your car, place the car key fob on your chin to increase the range of the car-retrieval signal. The fluids in your head turn it into an adequate conductor.

6. Look at the gas gauge to figure out which side to fill your gas
