Pets and children mean things can get messy. When taking them in the car, it's inevitable that the car will be a mess with them. However, it is possible to keep the car organized if you have both pets and kids. Here are some tips for keeping your car clean when you're going for a ride with your pets and children.
Keep pets in one spot
While this may be easier said than done, if the pet is in one spot, there won't be a lot of pet hair to clean up. A restraint or crate can help with this. Pets that's allowed to move around in the vehicle not only spread hair etc. everywhere, but they can distract you while you drive. With that said, it's best to keep them in one spot to make cleaning easier.
Have mats and seat covers
Kids can be very messy, so having mats and seat covers will be a lifesaver. Most of them are liquid proof, and it'll make cleanup much easier. It'll also reduce the chance of any interior being ruined. The best mats for the car while riding with pets and kids would be the all weather mats that are stain and spill resistant.
Always clean up after a ride
It may feel like a chore after every single ride with your pets and kids, but it'll be well worth it. Cleaning up the car after every ride will ensure that the car is clean inside and no lingering smells will happen. This means you may have to vacuum pet hairs, clean the windows and use air fresheners to get rid of the odor. You may have to use a stain remover if the stain isn't getting out.
Keeping a car clean after a ride with the pets and children can be a challenge. But with these tips, you can have a clean car. In fact, if you need help cleaning your car and need service, we invite you to bring your vehicle to Taylormade Automotive Inc today!
