When it’s cold outside in the winter, it can be tempting to hurry back home to the warmth and put off unloading the car. But while you’re warming up inside, any groceries or other items left in your cold car could be ruined or cause damage to the car’s interior.
These are some of the worst things to leave in your car when it’s very cold.
1. Canned & Bottled Soda
Since most soda is water, it’s just as dangerous as a frozen bottle of water. Still, a can or bottle of soda can stay cold for a little longer than water because the sugar in it lowers the point at which it freezes. Be careful, though, because if the container breaks or leaks, it will make a bigger and stickier mess.
