It seems like every week there is an article about what you NEED to have in your car. The MUST HAVE if you will.
Well, this is a first. No, it’s not booster cables, a Jerry can, or even an emergency blanket. According to Business Insider the one thing you need to have in your car is a rag. Yup, a plane old rag. It’s inexpensive and could be the most versatile thing in your trunk. You can use it inside if you spill coffee (or other fluids), you can clean the engine, wipe the dipstick to get a reading on fluid levels. You can even use it outside the car to protect your hands when loosening a bolt and cleaning headlights. But, the best part is the versatile rag is basically free, you can use an old shirt, tea towel or even a single sock.
