Tips and Tricks to Keep Your Vehicle Tidy

For people who commute with their cars daily, keeping their vehicles clean and organized can be a real challenge. Unless a vehicle owner is meticulous in the maintenance of their car’s interior, the vehicle’s current condition may be a far cry from what it was when it left the dealership.

You can’t expect your car to stay spotless over the years. Dirt and trash might have accumulated inside. It could be messier if kids were in the picture.

Fortunately, some tips and tricks can help you spiff up your ride. Veteran Car Donations has come up with these seven hacks to keep your car clean and organized:

  1. Keep a portable trashcan.

Don’t store your garbage in the cup holder. We always say we’ll get to it later but often forget to do so. Instead, you can use a small cardboard box or plastic container to hold your trash temporarily. You can then empty the container by transferring the trash into your garbage bin when you get home.

  1. Use cupcake liners.

Cupcake liners can help keep your cup holders clean. You can easily take them out and rinse them when they get dirty.

  1. Use cotton balls to clean air vents.

Having a hard time cleaning your air vents? Get a stick and attach a cotton ball at the end of it. This will let you poke inside the vents and get rid of the dust.

  1. Use coffee filters to clean the interior.

Coffee filters are great interior cleaners. The filter material attracts dust easily, so you’ll be able to pick up dust without too much effort.

  1. Keep a laundry basket in your trunk.

This will help you organize things like small bags when you go out on trips. You can also use the basket as a carrier when you do your groceries.

  1. Make use of shoe organizers.

Shoe organizers can be used to help organize things in your vehicle. Just hang them from the back of the front seats.

  1. Keep magic erasers.

Magic erasers can help remove hardened grime or dirt. You can use them on leather seats, too. Just be extra careful though.


Use Your Old Ride to Touch the Lives of Needy Vets

If your problem is not how to keep your car clean and organized but how to dispose of it in a meaningful way, we have this win-win solution for you: Hand it over to us at Veteran Car Donations. We’ll use your vehicle to improve the lives of the struggling veterans in your community while enabling you to experience the joy of giving to the needy.

By donating your unwanted car to us, you’ll impact the lives of our former service members who are unemployed, homeless, disabled, and suffering from illnesses, including mental health disorders.

We serve as the online vehicle donation platform of IRS-certified 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations that are fully committed to serving our nation’s disadvantaged and underserved veterans. We sell vehicles donated to us and use the proceeds to help fund the vital programs and services of these nonprofits. They provide deserving veterans with free quality health care, financial aid, housing assistance, employment opportunities, family support, educational scholarships, psychotherapy services, and many other benefits.

As a donor, you get to enjoy valuable perks, one of which is getting entitled to receive the maximum tax deduction in the next tax season. You also don’t need to pay for our pickup and towing services. We offer them for free to our donors in all parts of the United States.

Above all, you’ll have the ultimate pleasure and satisfaction of doing something extraordinary that can help uplift the lives of our nation’s heroes.

We take almost all types of vehicles, regardless of their age or condition. Apart from standard cars, we accept RVs, motorcycles, boats, golf carts, trucks, and many others. They don’t even have to be in good condition.
