A couple months back I had my minivan professionally detailed.
Some poor schmuck spent three hours sucking back 46 pounds of dog hair, a tonne of crushed Cheerios, moldy sippy cups long forgotten under the seats, and enough wrappers and garbage to fill a…well, a minivan. I paid up and drove away, taking in the beautiful moment of being inside a spotless vehicle. The dashboard gleamed, the steering wheel was no longer sticky, I could see the gray of the seats now that the four inches of dog hair had been removed. Ahhh.
Fast forward a mere three days later and it was back to its unfortunate state of GROSS. I don’t know what it is, but we cannot seem to keep the van clean. Short of refusing to let our dog join us for the occasional drive and forbidding our kids to eat in the vehicle, I don’t know how to manage!
Is your family car a disgusting cesspool of shame like mine? Or do you keep it sparkling and clean without exception? If so, HOW?!
