Summer Essentials

PHL17 Extra

Summer is right around the corner, and with that comes new products, and fun ideas to try to make it your best summer yet. Entertainment and Lifestyle Expert Josh McBride has some great ideas to jumpstart your summer.

We know people are craving summer travel more than ever, but rental car companies have limited inventory and are often charging sky-high rates for the cars they do have, which may put a damper on plans. Luckily, there is Turo. The leading peer-to-peer car sharing marketplace. Think of it like the Airbnb of cars. Travelers cansearch for car rentals across the country from real people. Whether it’s a Jeep to enjoy off roading adventures; an eco-friendly Tesla;  or a luxury Porsche – travelers can find just the car they need at a reasonable price. During the booking process, travelers can choose pick-up or delivery at their preferred location, including airports. Another perk?  Listing your car on Turo is a great way to earn extra income this summer. You can find out more at or the Turo app. 

With summer quickly approaching, you need an air freshener on hand to keep your house smelling fresh in the warmer months. Febreze AIR is my go-to. They use 100% natural propellant and an odor eliminating technology to help you tackle those tough summer odors, and it’s water-based too! It even has new clear packaging so you can see the formula through the bottle. It is offered in a variety of scents including Hawaiian Aloha, Mediterranean Lavender, and Bora Bora Waters.  You can purchase Febreze AIR for $3.49 at Target, Walmart, or nationwide retailers.
