Two tips for drivers who want to start keeping their car interior clean
If you are frustrated by how untidy and unclean your car interior looks and would like to keep it in better condition from now on, you should read the advice offered here.
Invest in a 3D mat
One accessory that could really elevate the cleanliness levels of your car's interior is a 3D mat. Mats like this are tailored to fit the floor dimensions of specific car models, which means that if you purchase one for the model you own, it will align with the floor's contours perfectly, leaving no gaps that crumbs or drink droplets could pass through. In short, because of the mat's design, it makes it almost impossible for you to stain the carpet or leave mouldy food on the floor of your car.
Additionally, 3D mats often have raised edges. This means that, if you were to spill a large coffee all over it, you could easily pick up the mat and the liquid it is holding and tip the fluid out onto a nearby patch of grass or into a bin. Plus, you could do all this without having to worry about the coffee flowing over the edges of the mat and onto your clothes, your car seat or the dashboard. This should make the (inevitable) clean-ups of spillages a lot faster and less stressful.
Get a car bin
Another simple accessory that can make it easier to keep your car interior clean is a car bin. This is a bin specifically designed for use in vehicles, and it normally comes with a strap or another type of attachment that allows you to hang it off the car's centre console or off the back of one of the front seats' headrests.
This item could encourage you (and any messy passengers you transport) to keep the car's interior tidier. The reason for this is that if you snack or drink takeaway coffees whilst driving and you have nowhere in the immediate vicinity of your vehicle to dispose of the wrappers, fruit peelings or cups that the consumption of these refreshments leaves you with, then you may be inclined to simply stuff these items into the car doors' storage pockets and the glove compartment (and then promptly forget that they are in there until you notice the smell). You may even allow this rubbish to form a miniature rubbish tip on the floor of the car interior. Conversely, if you have a designated space for your rubbish that is always within easy reach when you're driving, you will find it easier to break the habit of littering in your own car.
