As most moms are aware…we could all survive the apocalypse eating what has fallen under our childs seats in the car. I wish I had the will power to just say no to food and drinks in the car, but let’s be honest…I like eating and drinking in the car as well and how fair would that be? I have recently tried a few things that have made my car feel brand new inside without having to give up snacks on the go.
I told my son the other day how I wish it would stop raining so we could go by the car was. Not to get the car washed but to have it vacuumed out. It always amazes me there are not rodents living in my car, just small children.
Then it hit me while I was pumping my gas during a lull in the rain. I saw a vacuum at the gas station! It was on like donkey kong. I had to be quick and stealthy because if not I would be late picking up my daughter from school. I told my son the plan and he said, “Game on Mom!”
He picked up all the floor mats in the back and threw everything in the very back seat. It was amazing! For $1 it vacuumed my whole suburban.
Now the depressing part…MY DIRTY FLOOR MATS! GROSS!!!! I didn’t have time to scrub them and wasn’t even interested if I did. I heard somewhere you can throw them in the washing machine. I thought what the heck…Lets give it a try.
The results are amazing! They turned out super clean. I did the cycle on low spin, but next time I think the regular one would be just fine.
Here is the way to clean and get your car smelling amazing at the same time.
The kids had spilled soda and god only knows what else all over the door panels so I grabbed what smelled best to clean it. When I was done it looked amazing and smelled great! But the best part was the next morning when I went to go to school…It still smelled AMAZING!!! Who needs cheap air fresheners when you have an amazing clean smell you love.
These are just a few tips for keeping your Mom ride so fresh and so clean. If you have any tips let me know. I would love to add some more,
