Jump-start a car with red wine

Don't drink it all. When your battery is dead, add wine. Now, thanks to video creator Kipkay, we learn a very unconventional hack.

The acid in the red wine reacts with the acid in the battery to give it just enough of a boost to start the car. Sounds like we should start packing the Shiraz alongside the spare tire, road flares and jumper cables.

Just don't get caught with an "open container".
