  1. I am carrying two in the car as steering wheel potholders. In the Phoenix area, I also need one that slips over the metal part of the seat belt so I am not branding my thigh when it is 120 degrees in August.

    • Hey Deb, thanks for sharing this! I’ve never heard of anyone doing this before but I’m very glad our koozies are so helpful! The foam and neoprene materials make them very practical for a wide variety of everyday uses, that’s for sure.

      Thanks again for sharing this smart idea.

      Best wishes,
