Hey Autobloggers! Welcome to another episode of "Car Hacks." If you're like the many millions of drivers out there who take their change and dump it into their center console or cup holder, then you know how annoying it is to scrape and pick to get a single coin out. So, today we found a hack that claims to get every single penny just by using a sock and a vacuum. Let's try it out.

For this hack you'll need a vacuum and a sock. The idea is that the powerful suction of the vacuum and the filter like structure of the sock will help grab items that are hard to reach or pick up. Place the sock over the vacuum's opening and press down to create a catcher area.

Now let's dump a bunch of change and test it out. To get the coins, turn off the vac and give the hose a little shake. Now let's finish the job.

The hack worked! I guess it doesn't just suck.
