Backseat Butler is a nylon trash can for vehicles that's been made to hold up to two gallons of garbage at a time. Each of these trash receptacles is dark gray with red piping, and it's specified that each waterproof receptacle is suitable for use in virtually any vehicle. Every receptacle is outfitted with a buckle, similar to a lifejacket's buckle, that's been designed to wrap securely around any seat or armrest, once you've adjusted the customizable straps.

How to Use (Step by Step)

  1. Wrap Around Seat or Armrest

    To add your Backseat Butler to the vehicle of your choice, wrap its straps around any seat or an armrest between any two seats. If you wrap it around a seat, keep in mind that it should be resting at the back of the seat, instead of taking up space at the front where a person could be sitting. To wrap the receptacle tightly around a seat or armrest and then buckle it securely, you may need to adjust its straps to make them shorter or longer.

  2. Add Trash Bag (optional)

    Once you've got your trash receptacle set up and buckled, you can use the zipper to open the top and add a small, disposable garbage bag, if you'd like. If you'd prefer to just throw trash directly into the receptacle, without adding a bag, it's fine to skip this step. Either way, be sure that the receptacle's top is zipped up completely.

  3. Throw Trash in Receptacle

    Regardless of whether you've added a disposable garbage bag or not, you can start picking up pieces of trash at any time and throwing them in your Backseat Butler. If you're quite messy by nature, there may be pieces of trash lying around on the seats and the floor of your car already. You should be passing each piece of trash through the inconspicuous petal-like slots at the top of the receptacle, though, instead of unzipping the receptacle each time you use it.

  4. Empty the Receptacle

    When you notice that your vehicle's trash receptacle is getting full, bring it into your home and unzip the top so that you can empty it into a larger garbage can there. Aside from your home, you could also empty it into a public garbage can, such as one that you'd find in a local park, or a local dumpster. Once you're done, return the trash receptacle to its previous location in your vehicle.

Features

  • Gray and Red

    Every Backseat Butler has a gray body with red piping, which means that each one will complement the color scheme of almost any vehicle that it's put in. Furthermore, the nylon used to make each receptacle is stain-resistant, so if you notice any dirt on yours, just give it a wipe with a damp cloth and it should continue to look aesthetically pleasing.

  • Generous Size

    The Backseat Butler is large enough to hold as many as two gallons of garbage at one time. However, since you'll be buckling it around a seat or armrest in your vehicle, it won't take up a lot of valuable space on your floor or in your trunk. When you glance at it, it'll look as if it's about the same size as two canvas lunch bags that have been stitched together.

  • Waterproof

    This trash receptacle is waterproof, so if you throw something into it that's full of liquid or wet, it won't allow any liquid to drip onto the seats or the floor of your car. Consequently, it's an ideal receptacle for things like dirty diapers, soda cans with a bit of soda left inside, or sanitary wipes that are still wet. If you don't want even the inside of your receptacle to get wet, simply add a small plastic garbage bag to it first, before tossing in any garbage.

  • Multiple Storage Pockets

    Your Backseat Butler will have three mesh storage pockets—a small one at each side, and a larger one at the front. These pockets are fantastic places to store small items you might need while you're on the road, such as your smartphone, a pair of glasses, or a fabric face mask. If you've got a child sitting in the backseat with the receptacle facing them, you could always tuck a pack of cards or a small book into one of the pockets to keep them entertained.

Positive Points

  • Keeps Car Cleaner

    Other people might be disgusted if they open your car door to get in, and it's full of old soda cans, paper bags, straws, and such. They may become more disgruntled if they have to move this sort of item to find someplace to sit. Fortunately, once you've got a Backseat Butler, you'll be far less likely to toss garbage like this around the interior of your car. Instead, if the garbage can is hanging in a convenient location, each piece of trash can be quickly tossed in there, with your car's floor and passenger seats remaining clean.

  • Conceals Trash

    If you were to use a trash can with a completely open top in your vehicle, you and any of your passengers would likely be forced to look at the trash while driving along. To completely hide a trash bin with no lid, you'd have to put it in your trunk, or far into your backseat, where you might not be able to reach it. On the other hand, each Backseat Butler has a petal-like hole in its top that's big enough to take in pieces of trash, but not open enough to give you a full view of it.

  • Discourages Littering

    Another practice one might engage in to dispose of trash is throwing it out the window, which clearly would stop a person's car from becoming messy but could be harmful to the outside environment. This could also disturb other drivers on a busy road. Using a Backseat Butler in your vehicle will stop you from being tempted to do this, too, as it'll be ready at hand for you to throw any small or medium-sized piece of garbage into.

Critical Advice

The Backseat Butler is a sturdy trash receptacle, but it's not completely immune to damage, so you must avoid overfilling it. This is especially true when it comes to the mesh pockets on the outside that aren't quite as sturdy as the main body of the receptacle. As for the main body, don't try to jam anything inside that's almost as large as the body itself. Moreover, if you notice that pieces of garbage are starting to stick out the top, empty the receptacle immediately. Doing these two things will help your trash receptacle have a long life without picking up rips or holes.
