Help! Messy kids on board!

Ice Cream and Child

Keeping the car clean when you’ve got children feels like an impossible task. Crumbs, smeary fingerprints, and toys just seem to find themselves everywhere!

Luckily there are some easy tips and tricks that you can do to protect your car as much as possible from the kids’ mess. Plus, you probably already have most of the things you need at home!

Be organised

Pop a shoe organiser, or a backpack on the back of your seats to organise the kids’ toys in the car. They’ll have easy access to all of their car entertainment during the drive, and they’ll have a place to tidy their toys away before they get out of the car. It’ll also double up as a protection against muddy footprints on the back of your seats.

Have an in-car bin

Use a cereal tub, or sealable plastic container to use as a bin so that the kids know where to put their food wrappers and rubbish, and so that you can easily take it out and empty it all.

Watch out for crumbs

Pop some cupcake cases into your car cup holders to gather the crumbs, or the bits and bobs that always seem to gather in these spots.

Never forget wet-wipes

Make sure you’ve stocked the car with wet wipes. They are a must-have whenever you’re travelling with the children to clean up any spillages and mess, quickly and easily.

Get covered

Get seat covers, or cover the seats with a blanket or towel. This way all the mess that gathers around the child car seats can be easily shaken off, and there’s no risk of food and drink stains on the upholstery. Likewise, cover the floor with rubber mats and not the carpeted ones, so that the mess can be easily shaken off or wiped away.

Make cleaning up fun

Get the children involved in washing and tidying the car. Playing with sponges and washing the car can be turned into a family game, and it might even encourage the children to try and keep the car clean after all their effort… at least for the first day anyway.

If you have any additional tips you’d like to share with us, please add your comments onto our Facebook post, we’d love to hear from you.
