Top 5 Car Hacks That Will Organize and Clean Your World
Families today live life on the go. Between soccer practice, band camp and Spanish lessons, we are busier than ever before. How can you keep the clutter under control and keep your vehicle from looking like you've been living in it? Our quick car hacks will give you the organizational tools and tricks that you need to knock out the mess and stay safe and sane on the road.
1. Cupcake Wonders
If you've ever spent time digging coins out of your vehicle's cup holders or trying desperately to clean out the spilled soda that's gotten sticky in there, you know how frustrating it can be. Avoid the pain and suffering with one of our simpler car hacks: simply drop a silicone muffin or cupcake liner into the cup holder to catch spills and coins! You can easily pull them out for cleaning and replace them right away.
2. Clean and Shiny
There are several different options for keeping your vehicle clean and tidy when you're on the go, but these are some of the best tips we've seen for tough cleaning challenges. Air conditioner vents can get filthy with dust and mold from outside air, so try using a foam craft brush to easily get between the vents and remove the allergens from the air your family is breathing.
3. Blast Away the Haze
Headlights tend to take a beating over time, and can turn yellow with age. Make headlights bright and shiny again with a simple bathroom solution: toothpaste! Add a nice non-gel toothpaste to a brush and scrub your headlights, adding a little warm water to make a paste. Clean off with a soft cloth and you'll be seeing better at night in no time!
4. Tiny Objects
With kids, there are almost always some tiny objects floating around your car waiting to be stepped on and possibly ground into the carpeting. One great way to avoid this trap is to add a fabric sofa remote control holster to the second-row seats. The fabric drapes perfectly under a car seat or fits right on the back of the front row to form a line of additional storage areas that are ideal for small toys, crayons or snacks. Kids will love that everything is right at hand and parents will appreciate the organization.
5. Trap that Trash
Keeping garbage under control is always a challenge in a vehicle, but one that can be handled in a flash when you have the right tools. Use an empty hard-plastic cereal or storage box with a plastic grocery store bag liner as an inexpensive and perfectly-sized trash can for your car. Put one in the front seat and the back seat so you're not constantly passing sticky items while you're driving.
