If you’re an avid gardener, then odds are the interior of your car always has patches of mud and dirt caked to the floor and vinyl. Although this time of year is a great time to do landscaping, it is important to keep your interior clean. That’s why we’ve put together tips for cleaning your car interior.
According to Garden Rant, one of the best things you can do while gardening is to carefully lay down plastic before loading up on supplies and materials. Looking for large sheets of plastic? Consider buying furniture and mattress covers. These large, cheap sheets will create a layer between car fabric and dirt. Your local U-Haul sells sheets like this for a couple dollars apiece.
Some gardening materials stink, especially mulch and manure. The best policy is simply not to put these in your car; however, if you must you should definitely follow some additional steps. Consider buying plastic totes with sealable lids, and load up on baking soda. Simply open a box of baking soda and sit it in your car to absorb odors.
Finally, take your time and always carry thick blankets. Some gardening tools look like they came out of a medieval dungeon, and they can do serious damage to your car. Move slowly and lay down thick blankets when transporting tools like hoes, edgers, shears, shovels, and trowels, among other things.
