Family Car Hacks while Traveling

Planning a trip with family? While driving in the car is rarely the best part of your trip, it doesn’t have to be the worst either. All you need is a few hacks from Reedman Toll to make this time stress-free and more pleasurable.

Take a look:

Clean AC Vents

AC vents are the last place you want a build-up of dust. All it takes is blasting the AC on a hot day to send dust flying into the air and around your face. Try using foam paint brushes to collect dirt in every little crevice.

Clean Baking Trays

Place unused, or clean baking sheets, or trays on children’s laps so they can be used as a flat service for drawing or playing. Metal sheets can be good to use with magnets for entertainment (don’t use on sunny days).

Magic Eraser

This is a fun at-home tool that comes in immensely handy for getting scuff marks off car vinyl. Don’t forget to check the places most scuff marks collect—wherever shoes hit often, like spaces next to the door or the backs of seats.

Food Caddy

The worst part about eating on the road is the balancing act. Free both hands by putting your food on a plastic caddy meant to traditionally hold things like shower or art supplies. Less spills means less stains and happier passengers.

DIY Trash Bin

You wouldn’t want the car littered with receipts, candy wrappers, etc. Create a go-to place for them by attaching an adhesive hook near the glove box and hanging a small plastic bag on the hook. During sharp turns, the hook prevents the trash bag from tumbling over. When the bag is full, simply dispose of the trash.

Protect Your Cup Holders

Prevent your cup holders from getting grimy and stuffed with trash. Buy silicone cupcake wrappers are the perfect fit for your car and they make clean-up a cinch.

Seat Belt Pillow

When you are in the car for a while, you want to get comfortable, but you don’t want to compromise your safety by clicking off the seatbelt. A genius foldable pillow uses the seatbelt to your advantage and comfort. With it wrapped around the strap, you will be snoozing in no time.

Squeegee Off Dog Hair

Instead of spending hours lint rolling the entire interior of your car, spritz the seats with water and use a squeegee to get rid of all stray dog hairs. The rubber will grab onto them much better than sticky tape.
