Bring some cleaning essentials with you
It is probably impossible for your car to stay clean and organized for the entire trip. You will need to clean and organize it from time to time. Hence, it will be helpful if you have few key items of cleaning essentials on hand. For example, you can bring a box of small waste basket liners to gather trash between pit stops. Also, bring some disinfectant wipes to clean up any spills or wipe sticky hands. Then, pack a bottle of spray with solution water or stain remover to deal with grease spots that may accour during the trip.
Try to implement some rules
If you travel with a group in your car, try applying some rules such as ‘no food in the car’. if you dislike spills, you can also apply ‘no condiment and clear drinks only’ rules. At least the stains left won’t be as bad and can be easily cleaned with wipes or stain remover you packed. If you don’t like the smell of certain foods or drinks, apply the ‘no eating xx or drink xx in the car’ rule.
Set the time to clean
Try not to spend the entire of the trip cleaning your car. Remember to enjoy the trip yourself. You can clean your car during a stop to the gas station for example. Let our car messy a little bit and don’t be too bother with it because you will have it cleaned again later.
