A Mom in Arizona set out to find a way to keep her children from ever having to sit in a scorching hot car seat again. She created the *COOLTECH car seat cooler.

Freeze COOLTECH overnight. Then place it in your child’s *empty* car seat while you’re inside a store, at work, basically anytime your vehicle is sitting in the sun. When you return to the car, remove COOLTECH *before* you buckle up your little one and their car seat will be a cool, comfortable temperature. coolcarats.com
