Because let's be honest, since having kids - you've never had a clean car!

Having a toddler takes up all the time you have in the world. You probably don’t have time for a nice relaxing bath, let alone cleaning up the messy car seat. So you ask - is it even possible to keep your car tidy-ish when you have kids? Here are our 5 top tips:

  1. Designate spaces or all the essentials by clearing out the car and start fresh. Install organisers throughout the car like pockets that hang on the back of the car seat and a small accordion file in the glove apartment for maps, insurance information and registration. Having everything organised will ensure that you know each place has its own essentials and purpose.

  2. Always be prepared for emergencies! You really don’t know what might happen so pack the essentials into a small tub (empty wet wipe boxes are perfect!) with:
    • Napkins
    • Wet wipes
    • Plastic bags for rubbish/soiled or dirty clothing
    • Hair ties/pins
    • Mini first aid kit
    • Batteries for toys
    • Spare pacifier
  3. To keep rubbish at a minimal, it’s probably best to keep a mini rubbish bin in the car with a plastic bag inserted (or even a cereal box/pasta container!) so it’s easier to take it all out at once rather than letting individual pieces of rubbish accumulate. Depending on how full it gets, empty it at least once every 2 weeks but it should be emptied regularly.

  4. Eating on the road is essential if it’s a long car journey but to minimise the amount of empty packaging and crumps inside the car, it would be a good idea to only allow the children to eat foods that aren’t too messy. Foods such as fruit, crackers and cereal bars are light snacks that would keep your children full but a better way of serving it is to chop the fruit and cereal bars into smaller pieces and empty the crackers into small plastic containers with lids so there is no packaging or excess food to be wasted.

  5. Select an adequate amount of toys for the car only, otherwise once you start bringing house toys into the car and vice versa, chances are that they’ll probably lose it in transition. Toys are essential to keep the children entertained during car journeys especially if they’re long, but having too many results in mess and possibly loss.

With a little organisation and routines, you will be able to keep your car pretty tidy on the inside. Now your car just need to have a wash on the outside…
