Road trips are a great way to make life-long memories with family and friends. Whether you’re heading to the house of a family member for the holidays or you’re taking a road trip to the mountains with friends, the last thing that you want is for your car to suffer from those long hours on the road. In today’s blog, the team at Speedy Sparkle Car Wash in Loveland will be covering a few tips to help keep your car as clean as can be during a road trip, let’s get started!
Keep Plastic Bags in the Car
Regardless of how far you’re driving, you can guarantee snacks will be a part of the road trip — that’s simply a part of the equation. With that in mind, it’s good to have plastic bags in the car that can help hold trash along the way. The great thing about plastic bags is they can easily be tossed at the next gas station you stop at and they can help keep liquids from getting onto the interior of your car — double win!
Stomp Your Feet Before Entering
One of the main messes that people notice in their car after a road trip is dirt and rocks that are built-up on the floorboards. While this isn’t a huge deal to clean up, it’s also pretty easy to avoid. By spending a few extra minutes stomping your feet before entering the car, you can avoid taking a little bit of dirt from every stop that you make back home with you. If you’re going to be visiting somewhere with a ton of snow, this can also help keep the inside of your car nice and dry. Trust us, your guests won’t mind doing this!
It sounds like a no-brainer, of course, you want to stay organized during a road trip! Though that may be the goal that many of us start off with when planning a road trip, it’s incredibly easy for the mess of traveling in a car to take over. If you’re going to be traveling with children, pets, or it’s just a car of adults, do your best to stay organized throughout the trip. Pack things in containers that make it easier to contain messes. When someone’s done snacking or coloring, put it back in the container to avoid a mess from forming. This will help keep things nice and tidy on the inside of the car throughout the trip.
