What do cereal containers, rubber bands and heated seats all have in common? They are all you need for some pretty awesome car hacks. Keep reading to learn more as we share five of our favorite car hacks you won’t believe.

1. Use a cereal container as a trashcan

Never get caught with a littered floorboard again. Use a handy cereal storage container like these here and line it with an old plastic shopping bag. Snap the lid back in place over the plastic bag and you are ready to go!

2. Keep food hot with your seat warmer

Bringing home pizza for dinner? On your way to a potluck? Your buns aren’t the only thing seat heaters can keep warm. Make sure your food is secure in a seat and then flip on the seat warmer.

3. Use a rubber band to hold your phone

There is no need to buy an expensive phone mount when a plain rubber band can do the trick. Simply thread the rubber band through your A/C vent and then slide your phone through both the loops. Voilà! Navigation is now a breeze.

4. Place your key fob on your chin to increase range

Have you ever been unable to find your car and were too far away for the key fob to make it beep? The fluid in your head can reportedly create a conductor and increase the range of your fob.

5. Use toothpaste to shine your headlights

After time, a cloudy film can form on your headlights. Not only does this film look unattractive, but it can cause your lights to appear dimmed, too. Shine your headlights up with a simple squeeze of toothpaste and a soft cloth. Buff your lights until clear and then wipe off any excess toothpaste.
