Don’t Junk Up Your Trunk

Oct 28, 2019

Halloween is a fun holiday, but the mess that comes from trick-or-treating and candy wrappers can be a hassle. Xpress Car Wash makes cleaning your car a breeze, but maintaining it can be trickier than it sounds. We have listed a few helpful tips to maintain your car’s cleanliness, not only during the month of October but also year-round!

Put a shoe organizer on the back of the front passenger seat.

Haven’t found a use for your old, hanging shoe organizer yet? Hang it on the back of the passenger side seat for easy access for yourself or a backseat passenger. The pockets are the perfect fit for toys, snacks, etc.

Use storage bags to keep essentials tidy.

Storage bags don’t have to be used just for storage at home. You can use them for small items in your vehicle, too. Store it in the middle console, side pocket of your door or underneath your seat for valuable items that you don’t want visible.

Carry a snack bag.

You never know when you’ll get stuck in traffic or won’t have time to stop for breakfast in the morning. Keeping a snack bag with a few of your favorite snacks (such as crackers, protein bars and water) will be there to save the day, while keeping your vehicle nice and tidy!

Keep a laundry basket in the trunk.

Whether you are grocery shopping or taking a road trip, a laundry basket will help make your baggage much easier to keep together. Place your groceries or travel bags in the laundry basket for the ride for easy travel and to prevent runaway items from falling out and getting lost.

Use a cereal container as a garbage can.

Don’t toss away those empty grocery bags! Having a garbage can is necessary, whether you’re taking your kids trick-or-treating around the neighborhood or just for everyday use. Put a plastic bag in a cereal storage container, and place it in the back of the car. There will be less mess in your car and convenient to throw away when full.

Store plastic grocery bags in an empty tissue box.

Not only can you use your leftover grocery bags for multiple purposes, you can also save old tissue boxes for reuse. Find an empty tissue box, and stuff it with plastic shopping or grocery bags! This is perfect for wet clothes, diapers, recycling, etc. Keep the box under the seat or in the trunk for any need.
