Keeping a Steering Wheel Cool on a Hot Summer Day
It has been pretty hot for the last few days! Unfortunately, we do have to continue on with life as best as we can and that may include driving. If your car has been sitting out in the heat, you know that it feels like an oven when you get back in it – and the steering wheel is so hot that it hurts to even touch it! Here are some ways to help keep that steering wheel a little cooler.
One of the best things that you can do is actually very simple and cheap. All you need to do is take a thick towel and cover your steering wheel once you reach your destination!
We all know that leather can get extremely hot in the summer, and some cars are outfitted with leather-covered steering wheels. To help keep yours cool, we recommend checking out online retailers like Amazon Smile that have a great selection of cloth covers or options that have special cooling technology.
Finally, consider investing in a fun windshield cover like this one featuring Vincent Van Gogh’s “Starry Sky” (or use a sheet of cardboard if you don’t feel like spending extra money). It will prevent the extra sunlight (which can really jack up the interior temperature) from entering your car’s cabin. It will keep your steering wheel and whole cabin cooler – and it will prevent the interior materials from fading!
From all of us here at Poulin Auto Sales, happy summer and stay cool!
