Cool hot car seat buckles with ice packs
Daisy's trick for cooling down hot car seat buckles:
I start the car and the AC before we go anywhere and I just take some ice packs with me and set them on the car seats, especially the buckle parts, so that they're cool when the kids get in. I stick them back on the seats to keep them cool while we're out.
I'm thinking some of those flexible hot/cold compresses would work well in this case. I also came across a nifty product which could either be ridiculous or ingenious: an ice bandana. You could tie those onto just about anything you want to cool down -- including yourself.
