Maintaining your vehicle is essential. Not just on the outside, but maybe even more on the interior. If you want to organize your car and keep it spotless and clean inside all year round, there are a few things you can do on the regular which will help you achieve this.
Let’s have a look at some tips you can use to keep it nice and clean on the inside of your car throughout the year.
1. Make Car Organization a Habit
When it comes to the regular junk that builds up in your center console and your glove compartment, do a proper cleaning to make sure stuff isn’t piling up. Clear out things you don’t need or use. Getting rid of old papers and receipts helps you from having to fumble around too much.
Clear out your cup holders from old soda cups, papers, and trash. Condensation and spilled liquid can make for some messy cup holders. One great tip is to place silicone muffin holders in your cup holders, so you can throw them away and replace them when they get gross, rather than having to scrub away with a rag.
2. Use a Car Trunk Organizer
Trunks are often a forgotten section in your car. Without proper car organization, they become jungles of tangles clothing, wires and other stuff. Try using bins that feature different compartments and sections to keep your trunk organized.
3. Get Creative With Car Storage
There are many neat things you can use during a car interior cleaning to prevent your car from getting super messy again.
Household items like carabineers can provide a convenient way to hang things, and combining a muffin tray with a laundry basket can make a giant cup holder for those family road trips.
Keep a Kleenex box filled with trash bags so you can complete an interior cleaning whenever you need to.
If you have hooks on the back of your seats as many vehicles do, you can hand fragile groceries like eggs and bread from them to prevent them from being crushed or damaged.
4. Plan for Pets
If you’re going to have a pet in your backseat, you can buy a dog seat cover to prevent them from ruining the seats. You might still need to clean your car windows after they breathe all over them, but at least your seats will be free from damage and hair.
