Here at Volvo Cars Fredericksburg, we know your vehicle isn’t just a means of transportation. Sometimes it’s a makeshift office, a break room, or even a lunchroom.  With everything that happens in the cabin of your vehicle, it can get pretty messy. To prevent it from getting out of hand, try a few of these tips to keep it tidy.

Take Out the Trash

It’s not uncommon for people to leave their to-go cups in the cup holder, their napkins on the center console, and scrap pieces of paper strewn across the passenger seat. Forgetting to dispose of your trash once or twice isn’t a big deal, but it can accumulate, so develop a habit of checking for trash whenever you get out of the car.

Get a Reusable Car Trash Bag

If double-checking for trash every time you get out of the car is too annoying or time-consuming (we completely understand if it is), opt for a reusable trash bag instead. You can toss your trash in the bag, then all you have to do is remember to take it out once or twice a week.

Keep Cleaning Supplies In Your Car

We get it. Once you’ve made it through your front door at the end of the day, going back out to clean the ketchup splatter off of the dashboard seems like a huge undertaking. If you keep wipes and other cleaning supplies in your vehicle, you can wipe up small messes as soon as they occur and it won’t feel like such a chore.

Put Silicone Cupcake Liners In Your Cup Holders

If you’ve ever endeavored to complete a deep clean on your car, you probably know that one of the hardest things to clean thoroughly is your cup holders. Fortunately, you can keep them clean with silicone cupcake liners. Place a liner in each cup holder. When there’s a spill, you can easily remove the liner to clean it.

Keep a Stash Of Napkins and Hand Sanitizer

Raise your hand if you’re guilty of wiping your palms across your seats to clean them. We’ve all done it, but there’s an easy way to prevent it in the future. Keep a stash of paper towels and hand sanitizer in your glove compartment box and you’ll never have to use your seat as a makeshift napkin again.

Put these tips to use in your vehicle and you’ll be surprised by how much they’ll help you keep it clean.
