Your car does not always have as many things inside it as your home does, and yet to keep safe, it is a good idea to have several different items easily available. These often-forgotten items will help keep you safe in times of emergency.

1. Cooking Spray

This one might be weird, but in reality, it can be a really helpful item to use. In winter time you can use cooking spray along the edge of your door on the rubber seal. This will stop snow from sticking there and thus will allow you to open the door with ease.

2. Plastic Bags

Plastic bags can be used to cover your windshield and rear view mirrors when the snow starts falling. This will stop both ice and snow from sticking there and it will make it much easier and safer for you to drive off with your car every morning.

3. Socks

Much like with using plastic bags, if you want to add an extra layer of protection you can also add socks beneath the bands to protect your windshield blades. This will also allow your blades to have more wind resistance because of the added weight.

4. A Lighter, Empty Coffee Can, and Tea Lights

Using these three items you can construct a fairly safe little light that can keep you warm if your car breaks down in the middle of the road. The tea light should provide around 4 hours of light and a bit of warmth which can be helpful as you wait for help to arrive.
