Prev1 of 5Next

I can not wait for the day when I can buy a car. I take the bus on a daily basis, so the luxury of having a vehicle sounds amazing to me. When I get a car, I’m going to keep it in tip-top shape. Rolling around in a dirty vehicle is not something I could do, so car washes would probably be a weekly thing for me. I have been taking the bus forever, so I could never take my future car for granted. It must always be on point.

Whenever my friends pick me up, they always have to excuse the mess they have in their car. I always think to myself, “I would never let my car get that dirty.” Then I put it in perspective and remember that I’m only saying that because I still don’t have a car. When I had to share a room with my sister, I thought that when I got my own room, it would always be clean. Fast-forward to now: I have clothes piled up in my closet and a messy bed. Not what I expected at all.

When I do end up buying a car, will I go back on my word? Hopefully not! Taking care of a car can be annoying and a little bit tough. Here are 12 hacks for keeping your car clean and organized. Your car will be looking cool, neat, and even comfortable. Check out #10 to find out how to stay comfy on those long road trips. I’m definitely going to keep all these hacks in mind when I purchase my own car. Can’t wait!

1. Garbage

People use plastic bags as garbage bins in their car. I understand that it is not practical to have a garbage bin in your car because of the size, but a plastic bag is not a valid replacement! Not good enough! Using a cereal container as a garbage bin is so smart. It holds a decent amount of garbage, and it doesn’t take up much space! So cool!

2. Directions

Fiddling around on your phone while looking for directions is very dangerous. Don’t endanger yourself or anyone on the road by looking down at your phone. Here is a great way to go hands-free and still get to your destination on time. All you need for this DIY is a two-inch soft grip binder clip, two rubber hair bands, and pliers. Grip the curved ends of the binder clip by using your pliers. Bend the ends slightly so it will easily grasp your phone, and wrap the rubber bands around the handles until they are snug. All you have to do now is attach the binder clip to an air vent in your car. So smart!
