I’m still totes in love with my new car, the Kimbamobile. My cute car deserves only the cutest accessories. I’m sharing my top three cute car life hacks so you can keep your super cute car looking super cute!
Cute Car Life Hacks | keyring
My new car needed a new keyring – obvs. But have you had to put a key on a keyring lately? Broken nails and scraped fingers are not fun.
The easy peasy lemon squeezy solution is to use a good old fashioned staple remover. Just squeeze it between the keyring, which will easily open the coil so you can get keys on and off. Without a broken nail or even a speck of chipped polish in sight!
Cute Car Life Hacks | rubbish bin
You know those super duper cute fabric bags you can buy? There are approximately eleventy billion things you can do with them. I’ll share some more later.
You can pick them up for a few bucks from places like Kmart and The Reject Shop – or spend some serious coin at posh homewares stores.
The fabric bags specifically designed for use as plant pots are plastic lined and make excellent mini rubbish bins for your car. The flexible shape means you can squish them into spaces where a rubbish bin wouldn’t fit. I’ve got mine in my centre console.
The plastic lining means they’re easy to clean. You can clean the inside with a quick swish of a baby wipe or give it a quick handwash when you’re doing the dishes. Alternatively, for a couple of bucks, buy a new one every now and then.
Cute Car Life Hacks | cupholders
Have you ever tried cleaning the inside of your cupholders? I didn’t love my old car with all my heart, so I’m afraid I was a bit neglectful of her. I did once sacrifice a toothbrush to the attempt to clean out the crusty gunk of years of spilt drinks, but the gods weren’t listening.
The easy peasy lemon squeezy solution is to pop something in your cupholders to catch the drips. You can use silicone cupcake cases. They’re easy to wash, don’t stick to the surface like paper ones, and will keep your cute car looking cute! You can thank me the next time you spill your morning latte.
The Kimbamobile sports fetching tiny tub trugs (a random $2 shop purchase that I’ve never been able to find again) in her cupholders.
