Keep Your Car Clean, for Good!

Keeping your car clean can be difficult. There are dirt roads, messy trees, pet hair, food crumbs and wrappers. And there’s likely trash on the car’s floor, under the seats and in the seat cracks. Toss out any wrappers, bottles and other objects in the sturdy car trash can! Line a plastic cereal container with a grocery bag and use it as an in-car trash can. To keep the container upright, apply a strip of self-adhesive hook and loop fastener to the bottom of the container, so it’ll stick to your car’s carpet.

Hold Buckets While Hauling

I use a lot of 5-gallon pails to store tools and other construction gear in my pickup. But I was frustrated because they were always sliding around and tipping, and I couldn’t always reach them without climbing up into the bed.

Handy Towel Holder

Here's a tip I learned from my father. Attach a roll of paper towels to the inside of your car trunk lid with a short bungee cord. The towels will be handy but won't take up space (or get wrecked) rolling around your trunk. — Donald Boland

No-Spill Grocery Bags

It's a pain to crawl deep into the trunk to get all the groceries that spill out of your bags on the way home from the store. Here's a simple solution using common household items: Run a long bungee cord through the bag handles and hook the ends to the sides of the trunk. Keep the bungee cord in the trunk so it's there when you need it. —Vern McMeans. Short on space to store food or want a pantry? Check out some pantry ideas.
