Keeping your auto clean and organized can really help. Keep in mind that your Auto may not only be your method of transportation, but it just might be your kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. Respect others and keep it clean.

Dishes - When possible, use paper & plastic dishes. When you need to clean dishes, be sure to use hot water and dish soap and dry them thoroughly. Store them in a secure place to reduce the effects of critters. Be sure to wash your hands with soap and water and dry them with a paper towel when done.

Housing - You could be staying anywhere such as:

  • Auto
  • Home
  • Open air
  • RV
  • Shelter
  • Tent

In each case, you will have certain responsibility to keep your surroundings as clean as possible. Don't forget that you and everyone else around you just might be out of your normal domain and there will need to be a certain tolerance level.

If you store extra cleaning supplies, perhaps others will borrow from you and you might think that this is a good idea.
