Avoid bringing dirt in your car
There are a lot of ways to let dirt in our cars, but since we’re talking about the carpet, one way of avoiding this dirt in our car is by making sure our shoes are clean. Imagine being with your friends at a park where all of you were able to pick up some dirt in the soul of your shoes or sandals, and when all of you went in the car, immediately you see a lot of soil, rock, or pieces of leaves in your carpet, well that’s not nice. Set a rule that if anyone will enter your car they should shake their feet first before entering, and tell them to check first if they’re free of dirt. This may not stop your carpet from having dirt, but it would prevent and lessen the possibility.
Having a car is just like having your own house, and if you’re a lazy person, you don’t see organizing as an important thing. Well if you want to keep your car clean, you should keep in mind of organizing. Being organized would avoid having a clutter in your car. Make use of your compartments and other drawers.
Vacuum your car’s carpet at least once a week. This would avoid making your car more filthy. It would avoid dirt build up that would be hard to remove later on.
Have a trash bag
Always have a trash bag inside your car. If you have night outs with friends like road trips or etc. For sure you will be buying things that later on will become trash. So make sure you have a trash bag in hand to keep off litter in your car. There are also trash bins for cars available in the market. It’s your choice if you want a trash bin or just a trash bag.
Set rules for your passengers and yourself too. Set rules like no one should eat inside the car. Avoid eating inside your car because it could cause crumbs or litter to end up in your carpets. Make sure to set rules, if your friends don’t want to comply then don’t let them ride your car. It’s your car, it’s your rules.
