Commuting shouldn't be the worst part of your day, but that's not usually how it works out. Still, with the right upgrades, you can make your daily commute a little better. Here are six must have car accessories for commuting.
A Steering Wheel Cover
If your hands and wrists get tired from steering, a massaging steering wheel cover might be a good idea. These are simple to install, and they can make driving much more comfortable.
Warning: Once you install a steering wheel cover, you'll always want to have one.
Get A Sunshade
Have you ever gotten into your car in the middle of summer and realized it feels like an oven? A simple set of car sunshades can prevent this. They help block and reflect the sun's brutal heat while your car is parked. Sunshades can help reduce your car's internal temperature by 10 -15 degrees on a hot day and also add some style.
15 degrees might sound like a small difference, but when the options are:
1. Dying those first few minutes until the A/C kicks in, or
2. Being able to sit in your car and say “Hey, this isn't so bad!”
...you'd probably agree that a sunshade is an easy and inexpensive way to make your vehicle just a little more comfortable. Not to mention, you can buy them online in all sorts of fun and funky designs.
A Phone Charger
Don't you hate the feeling when your phone is almost out of battery? If you want to keep your battery charged, the best way is to have a phone charger in your car. All those hours spent commuting, you can be be charging your phone.
Once you have a phone charger in your car, you'll wonder how you ever lived without one!
A Lumbar Support Seat Cushion
Car engineers never actually sit in the chairs of cars they build and design (or at least it seems that way). You can tell because most car seats are designed with terrible back support.
A lumbar support seat cushion is a great way to make driving more comfortable. Just like the Steering Wheel Cover and Phone Charger, once you have a Lumbar Pillow, you won't be able to not have one.
Tough Rubber Floor Mats
No matter how hard you try, you just can't keep dirt and debris from entering your car and vehicle. Keeping carpet floor mats clean is impossible. Rubber floor mats are the answer.
Rubber mats are more durable and practical than carpet and don't get ruined when you have mud on your shoes. They also make cleaning your interior easier.
A Dog Hammock
If you don’t have a dog, you should get one. That way, you will understand how useful it is to have a dog hammock in your car!
Dog hammocks are great for transporting 4-legged friends. It gives them a nice space in the backseat to travel in comfort and style. It also keeps dog hair and smell from getting into your car. You can take out the hammock and wash it. This is not possible with your seats. Have you ever tried to get dog smell out of your car? It is not easy - we speak from experience.
