Sorry, this Chevy sedan was sold as soon as it came in – for next to nothing… to an opportunistic detailer we believe 😉 but our Langley car dealership has dozens of the best used cars, trucks SUVs and vans vehicles we take in every month at our used car lot in Langley. This could easily be one of my brothers cars in the old days, cause he was a bachelor slob with a McDonald’s addiction for a few years…

Cleaning a Messy Car is Not For the Faint of Heart
It was week one at the new job, and my co-worker needed a ride home. Instantly, emergency lights began to flash in my head. Luckily for me, it wasn’t the onset of exploding head syndrome.
It was the impending judgement that I am a messy human being. Evidence: overlapping McDonald’s bags in the back. Or the layer of dust on the dashboard. Or the pile of paperwork on the passenger side floor. Or the coins being held together by Coca-Cola in your cupholder. Or the loose Britney Spears CDs in the console…Last but not least, there’s always a pair of tangled up earbuds sitting in the car. You get the idea.
Thankfully, keeping your car from getting too messy has been broken down pretty thoroughly in a recentLifehacker article. So without further ado, here are the five best tips for keeping your car clean (with our own spin on it).
1.) Organize Everything
Maybe you aren’t all that messy. All you have is a case of clutter-car. Organization is directly correlated to how much road rage you have. The bottom line – organization is easy and prevents unnecessary finger gestures.
Cars become mobile homes and offices after a while. They just get messier a lot quicker, it seems. Loose CDs belong in a cheap, mirror organizer. That way, you’re limited in how much clutter you create. You end up keeping CDs that you listen to regularly in the mirror organizer and leaving the rest at home (and believe it or not, CDs are still heavily in use…give one a listen sometime).
The cup holders and console area always seems to get out of hand quickly. After a quick trip into the jungle of Amazon.com, this cup holder organizer really stood out.
For cell phones, always keep a bottle of ScreenDr readily available. You know you’re going to drop your phone on the floor. You’re going to get food grease on it when you inevitably go through the drive through again for a waffle taco (no one is judging you). ScreenDr is perfect for safely wiping your device at a moment’s notice. And remember the coffee filter tip for wiping the dashboard? ScreenDr can be applied to any surface in your car as well. It contains no alcohol or ammonia, so it is very practical for being on the road. ScreenDr can safely clean your stereo interface, rearview mirror, and driving glasses as well.
Keep a small file folder or coupon organizer in your glove compartment for registration and insurance (or use one of these). And any wires for chargers and/or audio adaptors can appear less cluttered with a zip tie or rubber band. As for those pesky tangled earphones, consider using a Nest earbud storage case to avoid a tangled mess when you’re back on the road.
2.) Remove the Trash and Declutter
This is a power move. You can’t deep clean a car without removing the bags of regrettable fast food and old paperwork from your first job. (We’ll let you take a moment to part ways.)
Once you’ve overcome the sentimental feelings for trash, aggressively remove everything from your car. One garbage bag for trash, and one for items you’ll keep later. The point is, you want to de-clutter your vehicle so you can tackle where to begin cleaning.
3.) Clean Your Point A to Point B Machine
The fun really begins when you start cleaning (said no one, ever). If you’re into cheap lifehacks, you can use a coffee filter to wipe down your dashboard dust. The absorbent filter actually does a pretty great job of picking up dirt. If you’re looking to add a fresh shine in addition to a clean look, it’s been suggested that you add a few drops of vegetable oil on the filter as well. However, vegetable oil is always better when left in the kitchen.
Leather-specific wipes or an alcohol free solution like ScreenDr can get things clean in no time. When it comes to seats and the carpeting in the car, a vacuum attachment will send those peanuts from last summer’s camping trip in.
4.) Prevent Trash from Accumulating Again
The best system is going to include a small trashbag and a small container (old cereal dispenser, perhaps?). Whenever you stop to fill up your gas tank, empty the trash bag as well. Not a fan of the cereal container? Just use ziploc bags. What’s common sense to one person is like discovering fire for the first time for someone else. If you can make trash removal as routine as buying gas, your car will stay clean a lot easier.
5.) Always Take an Item With You
Don’t leave your car without bringing an unneeded item with you. This means bringing the morning’s coffee cup inside when you return home. If you’re a musician, don’t leave instruments in the trunk. No reason to leave paperwork from the bank in the passenger seat, either. This rule can also be applied to any room in your house: always take an item with you when you leave a room. Your sanity will prevail, and suddenly those trips in the car become way less stressful.
