Default How to use polarizing filter with lens hood

I will be getting my first polarizing filter soon, to use on my 18-55mm IS lens, and possibly my 70-300mm IS lens, as they both use 58mm size. I am religious about using a lens hood, and wonder how this will work with the polarizer, especially since maximal benefit seems to be 90 degrees away from sun.

Both the 18-55 IS and 70-300 IS use conical hoods, so you can't adjust a CPL without reaching into the hood. While that might not be tough for the 18-55, it's probably not realistic for the 70-300.
