One thing that drove me nuts after having kids was the salt and dirt on the back of the front seats. They are constantly putting their dirty shoes, or mucky boots on the seat backs.
Diono has car accessories that help with this. They attach to the head rest and have clips on the bottom to help keep from swinging. They also have pockets that you can use for storage (books, electronic devices, magazines, pens/crayons etc)

Mr. K and I just did a long road trip (Ottawa - Kitchener and back) and having a storage container would have been so handy for his water bottle and snacks to be kept in. Unfortunately I didn't have mine at the time, but now that I do it's lovely.
My number one tip would be to empty the vehicle of garbage and junk every time you get out of it. Use a pop up trash bin or have a box/bag handy that all wrappers and waste can be placed into - then have someone grab it every time you exit the vehicle. Even if you aren't home, most parking lots have garbage cans in them somewhere.
Do you have any tips?
