When you need something to cover your hand and feet, plastic grocery bags will do in a pinch. 

I keep a few plastic grocery bags and a handful of rubber bands in the car.

If I have to change a tire or get out of the car in a muddy patch, I can slip a bag over each hand and shoe to keep them clean.
