If you want to keep your car clean it's easy if you follow our three very simple and easy steps.

Trash Can / Organizing Bins

One of the best ways to keep your car clean is to prevent it from ever getting dirty in the first place!!  This may sound intimidating but if you want to keep your car clean simply use some basic preventative measures.

An easy one is to add a small garbage can to your car.  Place it in the front seat on the passengers side and every time you have a straw wrapper or other trash, just toss it in the little bin!  Small bins like these can be purchased at dollar stores or you can even make a small garbage bin with a locking lid from a bulk cereal container.

If you have kids that clutter your car, keep your car clean by adding small organizing bins to the trunk and back space.  You can designate a bin for item types like athletic equipment or backpacks and keep the clutter contained that way.

Also you can add plastic over the door shoe organizers to the backs of the car seats.  You can then use these to create a space for crayons, toys and other small kid items that they can reach at hands length and eye level.

Tidy Car When You’re Pumping Gas

This is a simple suggestion but it works like a charm!  Keep your car clean by tidying it every time you pump gas!  It only takes a few minutes to pick up the trash, arrange things around in your car and wipe down your windshield if you use the time while pumping gas.

Use this life-car-hack and multi task and use the gas pumping time to tidy your car!  You’ll be amazed how utilizing those few minutes will keep your car clean.

Quick Car Wash Runs

Another life hack to keep your car clean is to use the car wash when you have time!  If you’re driving by a car wash and have a few extra minutes go and take it through.  Don’t wait until your car is filthy to get it done - you may not have time then.

Just run it through when you have a few minutes. This easy maintenance will keep your car sparkling and ahead of the clean game!
