Holy moly, it’s been hot the last few days. The central interior reached 30 degrees or more at times, and so did parts of the coast.
The warm weather has sparked reminders on Facebook and elsewhere to keep your dogs out of hot cars, you would think by now it would be common sense.
But there’s something else you shouldn’t keep in your car when the centigrade starts to rise, aerosol cans.
A woman in Vancouver, Washington, found this out the hard way when she came back to her vehicle after work one day to find the windshield cracked.
Karmen Ayres says that the temperature was in the low 90’s but must have been enough for the can of hairspray to explode.
Ayres told local news outlets that the can was in her backseat, which is a long way to go with such force to crack a windshield.
In a post on Facebook, Ayres said “TIP OF THE DAY: Don’t leave your hairspray unattended in your car on a hot and sunny day,”
