Keeping Your Car Neat with Kids

If you’re like I am, you spend a lot of time in the car running errands, going to sporting events, and even travelling for the holidays. It doesn’t take long for the backseat area to get messy with crumbs, spills and toys; and let’s not even start on the passenger seat floor board! But what if there are helpful products to help you when your keeping your car neat with kids? Let’s talk about that.

I tried to be one of those Moms who said no food or drink in the car (at least in the back seat area) but that never lasted long. And I always regretted it when it was time to clean the car or if someone had to ride in the back seat that was over the age of 12.

So in my quest for a happy compromise, I found a few products that make life easier when I’m travelling with the kids. Even in just my day to day running around, I find these items to be helpful and definitely a mommy’s helper in keeping my car cleaner.

Travel Pal™

Travel Pal fits between two child car seats and is big enough to hold everything for both children. Designed to keep books and toys neat and organized. It has a deep cargo bin for toys and lots of pockets for smaller things too. It also has insulated drink holders and the entire cargo area is waterproof – just in case.

The Travel Pal™ by Diono® has been a life saver in the back seat on my car. First of all, it has a neat organizer “area” in between the car seats so the kids can keep their toys, books, and other small items they insist on traveling with. And it’s not just one large box area, but a larger square to hold various items plus several pockets for other things. Secondly, it also comes with 2 cup holders, just in case you don’t have any/enough for the back seat. And finally, it’s all waterproof! Cuz accidents happen, don’t they?

I find this not only helps keep things somewhat neat for the kids but they can both easily reach their cups or toys without having to ask for one sibling to hand something to them.

Stuff’n Scuff™

Stuff ‘n Scuff features washable, waterproof fabric to keep mud and dirt off the back of your vehicle’s seat. The pop-open design maintains its shape providing full seat protection and the large cargo pocket holds everything. Fastens easily around any headrest and the adjustable lower tab secures it in place. Folds for easy storage in seat back pocket.

The Stuff’n Scuff™ by Diono® is another great organization tool for the back seat area. It hangs over the back of the front seats and gives the kids a place to keep their books, crayons, dolls and more. AND it helps keep the scuff marks, dirt, and other “bottom of the shoe” icky stuff that gets tracked in the car. It’s made from waterproof fabric which helps keep the seat clean, and it installs in a few second by snapping it around the front seat head rest and a pair of hooks to secure it on the bottom. And if you need to move it or store it, you simply remove the straps and move it or fold it down for easy storage in the trunk.

These two products from Diono® are just a few of the marvelous ideas to help keep the back seat clean and organized. Consider adding a seat protector to go under the car seat or a pop-up trash can to complete transformation towards keeping your car neat with kids!
