Walls Insurance: Summer Car Hacks

We all know how dirty cars become during the Spring and Summer transition. Everything from Pollen to muddy dogs(and kids), keep our new and/or old gas guzzlers from being pristine. Here are some of our favorite hacks to help keep the inside of Ol' Bess clean. (Hover over each picture to find out more!)

1. Do It Yourself Trash Bin

This particular one is made from a cereal container and a trashcan, which works great too!

This is one of my favorites. I actually have one of these in my car. What I used was a desk trash can and some Velcro strips, to keep it fastened to my cars carpet, and put it behind my center console(back seat, on floor). Keeps the balled up receipts out of your cup holder and the granola wrappers off your floor.

2. Food Holder

This food caddy is made from a painter's tray, will run you about 60 cents from your local hard ware store!

During those long road trips and limited amount of time, you always end up having to go through a drive through. Create a little food caddy for your kids to make it easier for them to eat and to keep the mess off your seats!

3. Cup Holder Protector

All this takes is adding three layers of cupcake liner to the inside of your cup holders. This allows for easy cleaning and ensures that you won't have to scrape dirt and goo out of the deep, hard to reach corners in your cup holders.

4. Over the Seat Organizer

One shoe divider runs for about 9 dollars. (Cut it in half and you have enough room for both seats)

 These over the seat organizer provide no excuse for things being left on the floor or on the seat. These are made from shoe dividers 

5. Dog Hammock

Really all you need is some felt (or an old quilt) that would run you less than ten dollars (depends on back seat size) and something to fluff it with. Note: this requires a bit more creativity and craftsmanship (and a little bit of patience)

Obviously you have to have a furry friend for this one. This hammock allows your pet to be comfortable and keeps all the hair off the seats! (Not recommended for child use)
