How do I stop my car from filling up with sand?

Don't bring the whole beach home with you.

To minimize the amount of sand that you get in your car or track through your house after a day of beach fun, first use the end of a towel to brush sand off of children's feet - and your own. If there are shower or rinse facilities at the beach, wash excess sand off there. If not, consider using a hose before going indoors at home. Alternatively, you could keep a bottle of water in the boot/trunk of your car specifically for rinsing off sandy feet. If none of these options are available (or appeal), and the sand still bothers you, it's worth walking around for a few minutes to help the sand dry and become easier to brush off.

Use baby powder or cornstarch to absorb the moisture off of your skin and then just brush the sand off! This type of thing is sold in fancy bottles as a "special formula" for a fancy price, but really it's just like baby powder or cornstarch
