Don’t Let Your Car Get Covered in a Melted Mess!

Image 1When the sun’s rays are beating down on your car, there are likely many objects inside of it that could be harmed by those rays. Have you ever left a chocolate bar on your dashboard or in your seat on a hot day? If so, you probably came back to find a melted, disgusting mess all over the place. It’s not just chocolate that can melt and muck up your car either. Crayons, most food products, plastic toys, CDs and DVDs, and a host of other goods can all melt. Even expensive electronics can be damaged or ruined when exposed to extreme heat. While you can’t shut down the sun, you can protect your car and the belongings you have inside of it against the sun. The easiest way to do that is by purchasing and regularly using a window visor.

Auto Truck Depot offers a great window visor—the Ventshade, which is efficient at blocking the sun’s rays and protecting your goods. Furthermore, it keeps your car from getting so hot that it hurts to touch the door handle or the seatbelt buckle! In addition to using your Ventshade, keep in mind that there are other things you can do to reduce heat buildup in your car as well.

Try parking in a shaded area, such as underneath trees or other structures. If you’re in a secure area, you may also wish to leave your windows open just a crack to let in some air. And, if you know you’re going to be heading back to your car soon, use your remote starter to turn on the air conditioning for a more comfortable arrival.
