    If you put a few drops of your favorite essential oil on a clothespin, the wood will absorb the lovely scent. When you put the clothespin into your car’s air vent, the smell will be released into the whole vehicle

    Wow did everyone skip the comments and ask the same question??? SMH

    So for the trunk shelf, not sure what the pin is suggesting and this may be an expensive way but try this idea. You can buy rigid insulating foam from Home Depot...$10.. http://www.homedepot.com/p/Cellofoam-3-4-in-x-4-ft..., cut it to shape (It's a 4x8 sheet, could make 2). 

    Then (optional), add what I think is sticky backed fleece for looks from Michaels...$10..http://www.michaels.com/725-wonderunder-heavy-duty... ... Lite weight and strong enuf if you go 3/4 inch or 1 inch.

    I use a plastic shoe box as my trash can in the car.  It is pushed under the front seat by the back seat passenger. Also, when the kids need to eat crumbly things in the car, they eat with it on their laps and crumbs fall in. When they are done, the lid is put on.

    the shelf in the back looks to be a ironing board to me.
