Using toothpaste on swim goggles to prevent them from fogging up is a trick I used this summer, and to my surprise it worked pretty handily, and that’s why the PopSugar.com writers’ tip to use toothpaste to buff up the shine of your vehicle’s headlights is brilliant.

In my neck of the woods, fall has been pushed back by summer-like weather, so getting into my vehicle, which is lacking in proper air conditioning, is something I dread after a full day of work. That’s why I really appreciate the PopSugar.com tip on how to cool my car down ASAP: “Roll down one window and open and close the door on the other side five to six times. The hot air escapes though the door you’re opening and closing, while the cool air enters through the window on the other side.” I might draw some weird looks from my coworkers, but it’s worth it to not drive home a sweaty mess.

Due to a recent vehicular fender bender, I’ll be rolling down the street in a rental car until my car hopefully gets fixed and I don’t relish the idea of driving an unfamiliar set of wheels. So, the PopSugar.com tip to remember to look at what side the arrow points on the car’s gas gauge to help me figure out what side of the car has the gas tank seems almost serendipitous.

Since my car isn’t outfitted with the latest tracking tech and I tend to “misplace” it in large parking lots, the tip to take a picture with my cellphone of my parking location will serve me well every time I patronize the mall or our local amusement park.
