How To Organize Important Papers You Keep in Your Car

Some people can't go anywhere without their pack of gum or their favorite key chain, but no one should go anywhere in their car without a few important pieces of paper.

You should always have your registration and insurance card in your car whenever you are driving. This helps if there is a possible accident or you get pulled over, plus it is the law. It gives proof that the car is registered to you. The insurance card has the necessary information you will need if you are in an accident.

I also like to keep auto records in my car. Whenever I go to get an oil change or have to get parts replaced or fixed, I like to keep the copies of paper they give me in my glove department. That way it is easily accessible for whenever I may need it.

All of these papers can create a mess in your glove box or lying around your car. However, there is an easy way to keep it all organized.

I purchased a folder from Target for less than $6 which I could keep papers in and keep them neat and organize…

How To Clean Your Car Leather Seat With Household Cleaners

Leather seats in a car are a luxury. It's good to always maintain a clean car, outside and in.
The leather seats in your car are a little different than let's say, leather shoes. You have to be cautious when cleaning them. You can always use leather seat cleaners that you find in the store, just make sure you read and review them before you purchase them.

Warning!! Do NOT use bleach or ammonia-based cleaners because these can actually damage your seats!

1. Olive Oil & Vinegar
Mix 1/2 cup of olive oil with 1/2 cup of vinegar and put into a spray bottle. Spray minimal onto your seats and let sit for about 5 minutes. Then, wipe it off!

2. Water & Dish Soap
Mix 1 cup of water with 1/5 cup of dish soap in a bucket. Dampen a cloth with your soap water and clean the seats. Make sure you don't put too much of the solution on the cloth be…

Auto Theft Prevention Tips

Being victim to auto theft is never a choice, but here are some tips to possibly prevent it from happening to you!

1. Park in a lit spot.
Dark areas can be targets for thieves. Try to park under a light post or wherever there is a source of light that can shine on your vehicle.








2. Keep valuables out of sight.
Don't leave money, chargers, jewelry, or anything of value in plain sight. Take them with you or hide them in the glove box or middle console.








3. Lock your doors.
As soon as you exit your vehicle lock your doors. Also, as soon as you get into your vehicle, lock the doors as well for precaution just in case someone tries to come up to the door.










4. Be aware of your surroundings.
Check the area around you to make sure it's safe before you exit or enter your vehicle.









5. Close windows and don't leave the keys in the ignition.
Make sure you roll the windows all the way up, because even if you lock the doors, thieves can unlock it more easily if the windows are down. Also, don&#…

10 Unique Technology Features In Cars You Didn't Know About

Cars are advancing every day. Each new model has something more to offer. Some things are beneficial, others are just cool to have. Here's a list of 10 unique features in different makes and models of cars.


1. Cameras that keep you in the center of the lane.
Some cars now have cameras all around the vehicle that detect the lines of a lane. They nudge you into the center of the lane if you get too close to the line.
Ford Fusion, Toyota Prius, to name a few.








2. Traffic light changes.
Audi is creating a vehicle that will be able to communicate with traffic lights. This way your car will tell you how long you have until the light turns green.








3. Automatic brakes.
Some cars will vibrate the driver's seat or the steering wheel when you're close to hitting another vehicle or object from the front of your car. The 2015 Honda Accord is an example of this. The 2015 Subaru Outback goes above and beyond just vibrating the seat or steering wheel, this car will actually stop your car for y…

Which Side of the Car Do I Pump Gas On?

It's time to fill your tank with gas.Whether you're in a new car, a friend's car, a rental car, or even your own car... you might question which side is the tank on? I have a trick for you that will save you from getting out of your car and having to turn the car around at the gas pump.

To figure out which side to pump the gas, look at the fuel gauge and next to it should be a picture of a gas tank with an arrow. The direction of the arrow will let you know which side the tank is on.
This first picture indicates that the gas tank is on the right side of the vehicle.



This second picture indicates that the gas tank is on the left side of the vehicle.



Happy Pumping!

Spring Cleaning List for Your Car

Everyone loves (or hates) spring cleaning because for some reason you can't clean in the winter. Spring cleaning is just a fancy term to give you the motivation to clean your entire house after being lazy and cozied up in the winter. It's also nice to be able to let the sun shine in and let a slight breeze blow through your house.  Your house is not the only thing that deserves spring cleaning... your car does too!

Here's a spring cleaning checklist for your car:

1. Grab a garbage bag and pick up all of the trash lying around.












2. Vacuum! Not with the same vacuum you use in your house, but the one at gas stations (or you can buy one yourself)










3. Wipe, wipe, wipe the dashboard, doors, EVERYTHING with cleaning wipes.













4. Clean the windows of streaks with a window cleaner and a microfiber towel.












5. Wash your car. You could take it to a car wash, but with warm weather, it can be fun to wash it yourself (don't forget the tires).









Happy Cleaning! :)

You Would Never Guess the Price of Bugatti's New Bike

And no.. I'm not talking about a motorcycle bike, I'm talking about a riding bike. Bugatti partnered with luxury bike manufacturer PG to create this bike which they call, the PG Bugatti bike.
This bike is weighed in at 11 pounds. How? Over 95% of the bike is made of carbon fiber, which makes it seem weightless. They also included a shock absorbent bar, which makes it firm, and aerodynamic tubing for high speeds.

Customers who purchase this bike have the ability to customize the leather and the color of the paint however they would like. This bike is not made for riding around the neighborhood block filled with potholes, but it is being sold as a sport bike.

With how awesome this all sounds, unfortunately, you probably won't see it in the streets. You'll probably find it in someone's garage locked up with 20 different combination locks with plastic over it. Thats understandable considering there are only 667 units being made.

Now, the price? The PG Bugatti bike is …
