We all know what happens to water left at temperatures below zero degrees Celsius. Well, water is not the only thing that has problems with frost. Some objects left in the car overnight can be damaged or even cause problems. Here are the things you should never leave in the car when it’s cold.
What not to leave in the car when it’s cold. It may be dangerous
If you have to take medicines from the pharmacy, be careful not to leave them in the car overnight. In the case of many manufacturers, it is recommended to keep it within a reasonable temperature range, usually between 18 and at most 25 degrees. Medications that have gone through the cold may lose their effectiveness or, conversely, may have dangerous side effects. Especially liquid medicines should not freeze.
2. Musical instruments
Under no circumstances should you leave a guitar or a violin in the cold. Low temperatures will lead to the contraction of the sounding board and other wooden ones. In the happiest case, the instrument will disagree. In more severe cases, the wood can crack, and repairs can be expensive.
3. Soft drinks or beer
As the liquid freezes, carbon dioxide can explode under pressure. Only those who have not seen a fire extinguisher trigger in the trunk do not know what a mess a box of juice can explode.
4. Canned food, eggs
Like juice cans, those with food can warp when the contents freeze. In the case of food, the danger is greater. This is because a unsealed box will allow the rapid growth of bacteria, which is a health hazard. This also applies to eggs.
5. Phone or laptop
Low temperatures can significantly affect battery life. However, as a rule, the devices should not be irreparably damaged. However, you should keep in mind that the device should not be used as soon as it reaches the heat – the condensation that forms inside can cause problems or malfunctions.
Once you’ve seen what you shouldn’t leave in the car in the cold, it doesn’t hurt to find out what things you should definitely have in the car in the cold.
