8. Making Sure Shoes Are Clean
It was important for Betsy and Rich to make sure that their shoes were clean before they got into the car. They also made the kids take off their shoes before getting in if they were dirty. They placed them on some plastic bags so that they wouldn’t dirty the rugs in the car and it worked well in keeping the car as clean as possible.
9. Cleaning Supplies
Betsy and Rich, created a small caddy of car cleaning supplies to keep handy for the trip. They took paper towels, Windex, and a DIY car upholstery cleaner that Betsy made. Whenever they needed a quick clean up, they were ready. Since this was a great way for them to clean up along the way, there was less mess.
10. Drink Holders
They let everyone have a drink in the car but only if it was kept in a holder. This made a huge difference when they were trying to keep the car clean. It was easier to have the drinks in a holder so that they didn’t spill as they were traveling. Since this worked well for both the parents and the kids, there were no spills to clean up.
