7 Items You Should Not Keep In Your Car When Its Hot

I have been driving for a couple of years and it seems like my car is always messy. I clean my car regularly and have sometimes found things that I had forgotten about that had fallen underneath the seat. Throughout the years, I have learned which messes can be avoided and which ones cannot. I highly recommend not leaving these items in your car if you want to keep it clean and smelling nice.

Lotion

When the sun bakes down on bottles with anything inside, it creates vapors that get trapped in the bottle. Without the bottle being open, the vapors have no where to go so they just build up until the bottle is open. Sometimes you open the bottle and sometimes the vapor does. If the lotion explodes, it leaves oil stains where it landed. It's just the worst.

Hand sanitizer

Giphy

The same concept of vapors applies here. This time though, your car smells like sanitizer and the sanitizer somehow seems more liquidized than water on a really hot day.

Any bottles really, even water bottles

Giphy

If I leave a drink in my car for an more than a day, its gone. It just doesn't taste the same after its been constantly changing temperature with the weather. This is more of a recommendation so if it doesn't bother you then keep doing what you're doing.

Perfume

Giphy

I had a $16 bottle of perfume that had been discontinued in my car and it was fine until one particularly hot day. I had worked a nine hour shift, got in my car and reached to grab it; only to find out that it was completely evaporated. Seriously, I hadn't even used half of it. So if you choose to leave perfume in your car, make sure its a perfume you're indifferent about.

Food

Giphy

I have left a lot of food in my car in the four years I have been driving. Sometimes its fast food or left overs I decided to take to work that I just forgot about. When I get back to my car, there's either an intense smell of food or hot garbage with food. Please do not let food just sit in your car when its hot, the consequences are not pleasant.

Trash

Giphy

If there's enough trash in your car, it could block the air vents and/or give off a very foul odor. Just throw it away as soon as you get to your destination.

Gum

Giphy

I have had gum melt in my cup holder and that is not easy to clean. If you chew it when it's hot, it's somehow stickier.

Being a pharmacy technician never held as many risks as it does now. Exposure too hazardous conditions were little to none, and garbing up was only conducted in IV compounding. But, now, in order to give nurses the medications they need to help their patients, they need us, pharmacy technicians.

TikTok was banned by the president, but Instagram is here with its newest feature called Reel. Many of us are still wondering why TikTok was being banned in the first place. Was it all the dangerous TikTok trends? It was because of a security concern, but not in the way you might think.

TikTok is owned by Dancebyte, which is a China-owned company. Basically, just like any other app, TikTok collects the user's data. The main question to ask yourself when investing in any app or marketing tools who will be owning my data? So yes, China currently owns all the TikTok user's data worldwide.

Disney

I've always been a huge Disney villain fan — whether it was for their cryptic one-liners, enviable outfits, or sidekick banter. Some of the most iconic lines from cinematic history have been said by the characters we love to hate and occasionally dress up as once a year.

The fear-mongering Gaston I now find hilariously cringe-worthy is now charming and oftentimes considered by fans as rightfully justified in his actions. Die-hard fans of the Disney villain fan club claim alternate egos in their favorite evil characters, adopting their hilarious witticisms into everyday life.

Social media is something many of us have been addicted to (whether we want to believe it or not) since the moment we got it. I remember getting Facebook at 10. Instantly I was hooked. I loved being able to share my life with people, a little too much in my opinion, and I loved being able to see how/what other people were doing all the time.

- I have extremely sensitive skin, which is why I have always resorted to a plant-based organic beauty line such as Radha Beauty.

- Radha Beauty won me over years ago when I was looking for organic skincare brands.

- I was so excited to see they launched a new line incorporating USDA organic rosehip oil, so when their PR team sent me some, I could not have been more thrilled.

- After a week of using the products, my face felt as smooth as a baby's, looked more glowy than ever, and even cured some of my summer sunburn.

Radha Beauty isn't just a best-selling beauty brand on Amazon — it's a USDA-certified organic beauty brand I live by, and anyone who knows me knows I am all about holistic wellness.

Typically, it only takes three days for me to tell if a skin product is working or not because I have extremely sensitive skin. It's also why I have always stuck by plant-based organic beauty lines such as Radha Beauty.

I have definitely had my fair share of breakups. I broke up with my high school sweetheart my second semester of college (he was cheating on me), I had a breakup with another guy I thought I was going to marry, and others in between. Regardless of whether you're the one doing the dumping or being dumped, breakups can HURT.

I am not in any way any sort of medical expert. These are just some tricks that work for me and have worked for others who also suffer from anxiety. These may not work for everyone, but I do hope these help some people in their fight against anxiety.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?
