They say a cluttered desk is a cluttered mind, but you might not realize that the same applies to your car. According to a study by the Harvard Health Watch, the average American spends 101 minutes a day driving. Here are three simple tips to make sure you spend those minutes in a clean, tidy car.
Dust and dirt add up. Help keep these small messes at bay by vacuuming your car once a month. A small hand vacuum works well and many gas stations offer access to more powerful vacuums for just a few quarters. The difference of a vacuumed car versus an unvacuumed car is greater than you’d think, especially if you suffer from breathing problems.
Keep a Trash Bag in the Car
It sounds simple, but the simple tricks are often the best. Keep a plastic bag in your car so there is always a place to dump trash. This is especially helpful during longer road trips in which waste builds up.
Always Bring a Towel
Spills happen. We get thirsty, we hit a bump, and — next thing you know — there’s soda pop on the steering wheel. Always keep a roll of paper towels in your car to clean up those inevitable spills that come from adults and kids alike.
