There was nothing unusual about him at first glance: he was elegantly dressed, with no distinguishing features. He was just a simple man sporting a beard.

Leaving your valuables or a chocolate bar in a car is a no-brainer, but there are other things people often overlook. Here’s what to watch out for before leaving your car.Number one is aerosol cans: hairspray, deodorant, spray paint, household cleaner, and sorts. On the back of these cans, you might notice a storage temperature recommendation. Well, stick to that. Here’s what can happen. Since these cans are pressurized, they become more sensitive to temperature. What’s inside the aerosol may expand, and this may result in a crack. And then, the can can blow up. Temperatures above 120 degrees Fahrenheit are already alarming. And it can easily get as hot as that in your car on a warm summer day.
