Few things look worse than a messy vehicle. After all, when your home is messy, you can close a door or not allow visitors for a few days. When your car is messy, however, everyone and anyone who passes you on the road can see the disarray inside. Plus, a too-messy car can actually lead to accidents. If a soda can rolls under the brake pedal, for example, you’re going to have a hard time stopping! Fortunately, there are things that you can do to keep your vehicle cleaner. Floor liners, for example, are a good investment, because they can minimize wear and tear on your floors and keep stains from seeping into your vehicle.
Of course, just because you have floor liners doesn’t mean you should throw all caution to the wind. Parents of small children likely know that a no-eating-in-the-car rule isn’t really feasible. Children get hungry and require snacks and sometimes even whole meals on the go. Instead of eliminating in-car eating altogether, just make sure that you always choose items that are easy to clean up and that don’t stain. This might mean opting for water, rather than grape juice or choosing small, dry crackers over messy, flavor-coated chips.
You should also keep a trash bad in your vehicle at all times and encourage car guests (and yourself!) to throw away any food wrappers, water bottles or soda cans, or any other trash they may have. Let children know that if an item is left in the vehicle, it will go in the trash bag. This should keep little ones from leaving their school things, jackets and sweaters, toys, and anything else in the vehicle.
