At times maintaining your car in a nice clean condition can be pretty difficult. Young ones, relatives and friends, pets and often your own bad habits contribute to quite a mess inside the car. Although it is true that you may grow immune to the mayhem in your car, there’s no doubt that organising and cleaning regularly is definitely the better option.
So how do you manage that with pets tracking in dirt, little ones messing with water bottles and people eating there twice in one hour? There are certain tips and tricks you can follow to make things easier and less chaotic. So take notes and follow these strategies:
Clear out what you bring in – when it comes to using the car, you will usually bring in items that do not belong there; or it could be items you just forget to take out when you leave. Apart from contributing to additional clutter in the car, you are not improving the situation. Let everyone know that whatever they bring in the vehicle should be taken out the moment the drive is over. Adopt such policies yourself, when it comes to cups, bottles, snacks, or whatever it is you keep there.
Teach your children to be more responsible – children can be a nightmare to cope with in the vehicle. When they are young, you have to keep a lot of items, especially for them. As they get older, they start bringing their toys and whatnot. Teach them to take out everything when they leave the car. That way they’ll be more responsible and your car will be much cleaner and more organised.
Keep a few waste bags in – a few rubbish bags won’t take up a lot of space. Actually, you can place them in the trunk or the side pockets of the door, where there is plenty of space. You can utilise them whenever you have a trip to a fast food restaurant and stock on meals for the trip. Cups, fast food bags and snack packs can all go in the bags. Furthermore, you can use them to prevent muddy shoes from making a mess on your carpets.
Do not eat inside – while all of these tricks are fantastic for when you want to fix a mess or prevent one, undoubtedly preventing the mess in the first place is crucial. Eating causes many issues so it is best not to eat food inside your car. As you travel and feel hungry, just stop and take a break. You’ll enjoy your food more, avoid distractions during the drive and keep the vehicle clean.
Get some organisers in place – a collapsible trunk storage bin is a valuable asset to your car inventory. Additionally, you can also get hanging organisers for the back side of the front seats. These will keep clutter at bay and prevent your car from becoming messy.
Getting the car cleaned whether through mobile car valeting services or by taking it to the wash is one thing. Yet, it is different story when you want to keep it organised. That is exactly what the aforementioned tips can help you with.
