Your car takes you and your family everywhere you need to go. It has never stalled, not even a scare. You take care of its basic needs but inside, your kids do a worse job cleaning up than they do at home. And if you’re anything like me, you’re the biggest culprit. You’ve spilled coffee more than a few times, you’ve lost fries between the seats, and you don’t remember the last time you gave your car a detailing.
It’s time to put an end to this one-sided relationship and show your car how much you care. It’s never let you down before and if you treat it like it deserves, it never will. Pick up the toys and organize them, vacuum up the floor mats and seats, and give your car a deep wash. While you’re at it, top up the fluids and organize the trunk. Grab these 37 items to keep your car clean and tidy.
