Driving your car in AZ from May to Sept, is like driving an oven with wheels. The biggest problem is trying to load your kids into the car and buckle them with out getting 3rd degree burns! The baby car seats are blazing hot and the metal buckles could be used for branding cattle! I found an easy solution that is actually fun.
We keep a spray bottle in the car door. I put it on the fine mist setting. Before we get in the car, I mist the car seat, seatbelt buckles and steering wheel. It evaporates INSTANTLY and cools everything quickly (including the children)! Last summer I bought an extra squirt bottle, and now the kids have their own. They love it!
By the way, I do not recommend the super cheap water bottles. They don’t last as long.
Thanks! I am putting a spray bottle in our car pronto–this perfect for the hot days that are quickly approaching. To see Tiffany’s FUN candy cakes visit her shop Sweet Candy Cakes. They all look so exciting and yummy!
