When Spring comes, we think about cleaning our homes top to bottom, but do we think about those shiny, colored boxes we ride around in for half our lives? Spring cleaning the car definitely Works for Me!
We had a nice little foray to the car wash the other day in between my daughters’ dance classes. It turned into quite an adventure! You see, it’s pretty cold here in the winter, and my motivation for cleaning out the car escapes faster than the heat from our garage! Throw in busy meals and snacks in the van (and millions of toys smuggled in the back seat), and you have quite a job come spring!
I started with emptying out the junk (a nice way to put it) from the car. Actually, these are just the non-trash items! I felt like I was cleaning out a clown car, the stuff just kept coming!
I kept looking around to make sure someone wouldn’t kick me out for violating this sign. Who carries around household trash in their car, right? Well, suffice it to say that my car IS a household sometimes! And being without my usual car-cleaning method, there was a LOT of trash!
And we finally had a clean car. As I turned the key, just in time to make it back to dance class, I heard the dreaded click. Apparently, leaving the doors open while I cleaned, combined with the kids leaving the door open ALL NIGHT the night before, had caused the battery to go dead! Luckily, I had one of these babies stashed under the Stow-and-Go-Seats!
After calling my husband to find out how to use it, I jumped the car and we were only a little late for dance class! I’m telling you, everyone should have one of these handy car-jumpers!
What do your car cleaning adventures look like?
