How to Keep Your Car Clean and Clutter Free

It can be difficult to keep your car clutter free and clean at all times. If you're like me, you spend a lot of time driving around. It can be easy to accumulate cups, receipts, change, and other items. Plus, we're in and out of our cars so often that they accumulate a lot of dust and debris.

Benefits of a Clean Car

It is so beneficial to keep a clean and clutter free car. I personally feel more mental clarity and peace of mind when my environment is clean and clutter free. This is why I have been more intentional lately about keeping my car clean. There is also a blog that lists several other benefits to keeping a clean car here.

Ways to Keep Your Car Clutter Free

Here is a list of some of the methods I have been using to keep my car clutter free.

What goes in, must come out.

Every time I get home, I look around and try to remember what I brought into the car that day. If I brought in 3 items over the course of the day, the 3 items must leave with me. If I didn't bring much in, I try to take out any other items that are laying around to make up for a day that I was in a rush and didn't take much out. This system helps me keep the car clutter free.

Have a designated trash area.

I personally use one of my door compartments as a designated trash receptacle. Amazon also has fantastic car trash cans that are only about $10! So worth it to keep your car and mind decluttered.

I love this sleek cup holder mini trash can for receipts, seed shells (my husband loves sunflower seeds), gum wrappers, etc. Plus, look how stinking cute it is!

This trash can is great for larger items like water bottles and food items. Also, look at all the patterns you can choose from! Only $9.97!

Ways to Keep Your Car Clean

Sign Up for a Monthly Car Cleaning Subscription

This is the reason we created our monthly mobile detailing subscriptions. A 2U AUTO subscription is the easiest way to keep your car clean. You sign up on the website, a detailer arrives at your location to detail your car, then you receive a reminder to choose your next appointment time every month. You never have to wait in line or leave your car at a shop. You don't even have to leave your house. It is super easy and the subscriptions start at $69/month whereas a one-time detail starts at $118. You save money and your car stays clean at all times.

Get a Portable Car Vacuum

I keep this cordless portable vacuum in my car to use in between my monthly cleanings. It is powerful for its size and easy to charge. You just plug it into any outlet.

Get a Car Detail Brush

If you care about the details, like I do, this brush is a must. I keep it in my glovebox and use it to clean out dust from vents and around buttons. Cars have a lot of small crevices that can accumulate debris. I also use this in between my monthly detailed cleanings.

Clean Your Own Car Every Week or Month

If you're into DIY and want to make time to clean your own car every week/month, that's also great! We recommend checking out the products above along with visiting the detailing section at any store. Get a good interior cleaner, microfiber towels, water, glass cleaner, shop vacuum, exterior car cleaner and you'll be on your way.

However you choose to declutter and clean is great too! These are the methods that I am currently using to feel good every time I drive! Hope you found value here. Thanks for reading!
