How to Keep Beach Sand Out of the Car

Well, it’s summer, you’re driving to the beach, and before you even arrive you notice that the sand from last year’s vacation still seems to be lingering. This is a common complaint among our customers.

Luckily we have come up with some tips for keeping the Ocean City, Rehobeth and Va Beach exactly where it belongs.

1. Get a seat sheet. Line the seats of your car or the trunk with an old bed sheet. It adds a layer of protection and is easy to shake out and clean once you arrive home.

2. Keep a brush. I’m not talking a hair brush, more like a soft-bristle brush that you can keep in your car and use for cleaning that hard-to-get sand from the bottoms of shoes.

3. Change out your beach bag. You might think you are smart for bringing a zipper backpack to the beach, but you’re actually trapping in more sand that will gradually disperse following your beach trip. Instead, get a mesh bag that won’t trap sand and shake it before returning to your car.

4. Carry water. Water is important enough as is for combating summer high temperatures. However, it’s also useful if you need to rinse off because you are bound to attract more sand to your body even after you strategically use the outdoor shower.

5. Use a laundry basket. A small laundry basket that fits nicely in your trunk is always good to have. You can throw dirty towels and clothes right into it so when you get home they go straight to the washer.

It’s inevitable that you’ll end up with sand in your car, no matter how hard you try. Luckily, if all else fails you always have our services at Springfield Mobile Auto Detailing to clean your car for you!
