Essential car care caddy

Essential car care caddy


Since we love our beautiful - small family size - car , we like always to take care of it whenever we have time for that. We used to take it to the car wash stations whenever we feel it a little dusty or needs to be cleaned and washed. Buutttttt after having a little funny toddler setting in the car with all of these snacks and crackers we had to care about it a little bit more than before.

We like to wipe the dashboard , vacuum the floor and clean some stains on the seats from a time to time. And because my husband does a lot of driving in the morning and in the evening everyday, and because we go out sometimes in the holidays , a car care products and essentials caddy became a must.

So I thought about making a small beautiful caddy for our car. I added the following products to the caddy in order to be handy in the car care time.

1 - Tissue papers box.
2 - Car seats stain removals.
3 - Soft car rag.
4 - Dashboard wipes.
5 - Hand sanitizer.
6 - Hand wipes.
7 - Car freshener.

Because our stores don't sell big caddies as far as I know, I chose this Cheapy plastic basket to do the job. It fits everything in there and it is cheap and sturdy.

Our car seats usually receive big and small stains of baby foods' spills , juice or snacks. So the removals are so helpful to remove them in 5 minutes or less. I also choose these soft rags which are made specially for cars because we don't want to give our dashboard a bath scrub when we aimed to clean it :D. I swap the rag whenever I feel it is so dusty with a clean one and wash  the old one and I change it completely when I feel it is started to be rough. Dashboard wipes are also so helpful in the situation we have a stain (Like a stain) on the car dashboard.

 I also picked some essentials for all of us when we are on the road. When my toddler makes some mess in his face I absolutely need a tissue paper to handle that especially when he gets flu. Tissue paper box is handy in whatever issue is and whenever I need it I find it easily in the caddy or in the center of the car.

In a place where the water and the soap  (and the sink :)) are lack, hand sanitizer is the best solution when we have greasy or sticky hands. I also need them after changing diapers for my toddler in the car. They are also so handy when we touch something dirty or full of germs.

I put this caddy on the floor under the seat beside the driver. It is reachable for the driver and the one who sets beside.  I will publish about our car organizing very soon.

  1. What a brilliant idea! I keep a little stash of nice things just for me in my car console...a pretty pen, clear nail varnish, scent, breath mints...that sort of thing. But this takes that idea to a whole other level. Thankyou! Mimi xxx

    1. Thank you Mimi for these lovely words and thank you again for the comment. I do add a pen and small notebook in the car with lip balm and stuff like first aid but I thought also our lovely car needs some care as well so I thought about the caddy. :)
