Tips on how to keep the inside of your car nice and clean

Cleaning the inside of your car is an essential task that many people seem to forget. After all, who has time to keep it spick-and-span after every trip down the road? Well, there are some easy tips on how to keep the interior of your car cleaner and more pleasant so that it is as close to pristine as possible. By following these easy tips, you will have less clutter and more space for your stuff.

What are some tips and tricks to keeping your car nice and clean?

Use a Compact Vacuum Cleaner

While it is not the most pleasant activity, vacuuming your car is one of the best ways to keep it clean. It will also get rid of any dust and other small particles that can ruin your car's interior if they are left to settle. Use a vacuum with a crevice tool so you can reach all the corners and crevices. Regularly clean the floor mats, seats, carpets, and upholstery because otherwise, these areas will gather a lot of dust and dirt.

Use Organisers to Keep Things Neat

An organizer will help you organise your stuff and everything you need at the same time. There are several types of organisers out there:

  •  The trunk organiser that you can attach to your boots' lid
  •  The back seat organiser that you can use for your computer, books, phone, and other things
  •  The glove box organiser that you can use to keep your car keys and other small items
  •  The CD player organiser that you can use for CDs, maps, or other things
  •  The cup holder organiser that you can use for cups, sunglasses, or other things.

Choose one that suits your needs best so you don't have to spend hours organising things every single day. This is one tip that works especially well if there are children in the car who are constantly throwing toys around, playing with them, and not putting them back nicely.

Use an Air Freshener

You can use an air freshener in the car so that it always smells nice and fresh. However, they only work when you have a car vent to circulate the air. Be careful not to use too much at once as it may give you a headache.

Clean Up Messes Immediately

Messy kids are a car's worst enemy, so be prepared and keep extra paper napkins, wet wipes, dusters, and other cleaning materials on hand. This will allow you to clean up any mess immediately so you don't have to endure it for too long. Spills on car upholstery can stain hard if left for a long time, so you should treat them immediately. Banish tough stains with a white eraser, rubbing alcohol, or wood cleaners. Also, be sure to invest in seat covers for your car's seats so that nothing gets onto the actual fabric itself.

Have a Car Bin Ready

Choose a trash can that attaches to your back seat so it is always in reach but doesn't take up too much space. A car trash can is more useful than you think because it will help to hide used cups and wrappers as well as throw out the trash immediately. This way, your car won't have an unpleasant smell and it will look cleaner. They are especially useful if you have kids in the car because they will not be able to throw things out at all.


There are many tips and tricks on how to keep your car clean, but it starts with proper hygiene before everything else. With these easy tips, you can keep your car cleaner and more enjoyable for your family. It will also improve the resale value of your car, which is a positive thing. Invest in organizers that can fit your needs, use air fresheners, have a trash bin, and clean up car messes immediately.
