    Keeping your vehicle clean isn't always an easy task. Here is an effective trash can that fits easily in the car without taking up too much room and closes to prevent spilling or bad smells.
    How to keep the car from getting trashed during Road Trips


    Just line a large snap lid food storage container with a plastic grocery bag, add the cover and place in the car. It fits nicely on the floor or in the backseat behind the console. The lid snaps shut to prevent smells and spillage.

    Keep the car from getting trashed with this simple DIY Trick


    The container pictured is a simple 1.5 gallon rubbermaid container found in the household goods area of your local Walmart. They were less than $10 each. Alternatively,
    you could pick up containers at yard/ lawn or garage sales during the summer months and repurpose them into trash cans, or here on Amazon.

      I love this idea! I have almost thought that I should have a trash can for each row of seats. We have a twelve passenger van. It seems like I can take care of the front area, but behind the second row always gets terrible, because I don't ride in the back and I can't see it.
