34 weeks of Clean! Week 33- The Cars

OK, OK, I know your cars are not technically a part of your house, but let's face it, many of us spend enough time there to count them as such, right?  Between groceries and appointments, children and friends, we spend a lot of time in our cars.

And like anything else, time and lots of kids takes its toll on our vehicles.  Honestly, it is not usually a big deal to me.  But, it is a big deal to my sweet husband, so I do try to keep a handle on the chaos. We keep a car organizer on the back of the seat for my youngest's books and such and we do tend to have a plastic bag hanging for trash.  But past that, well, life happens!

Once again, my amazing father-in-law came to the rescue this past month and rallied the troops to get the car cleaned up, inside and out.   Now the trick is to keep it clean 'til my hubby gets home! ;)

A quick checklist for you-
  • Empty all trash bags or just get rid of all the trash you have on the floor and everywhere else!
  • Take out all car mats and wash down.
  • Vacuum the floorboards.
  • Wipe down all surfaces.
  • Wipe down all windows inside.
  • Wash outside of car, including tires!

  • Check tire pressure while you are there! ;)
One of the things we always keep in our cars is an emergency car kit.  It hold simple things like a first aid kit, extra clothes, blankets, jumper cables, and such.  You just never know when you will be stranded and our motto is better safe than sorry!  To help you out, Kemi from Homemaking Organized has made a FREE printable Emergency Car Kit checklist.

That's it!  Pretty simple, huh?  And it will make the men in your life smile for some reason, go figure!
Well my friends, we have almost come to the end of the road with 34 Weeks of Clean!  I cannot even believe that the time is almost done.  Next week we are going to do a wrap up, talk to you about the e-book Kemi is working on for you, and announce the winner of our 34 Weeks of Clean Prize Basket.

Add your links of your garages for one last time for more entries!

  1. I see the challenge is almost over. I haven't been able to do much of anything in the realm of cleaning (or anything else) since the twins were born. Thank you for the challenge though, as it was very helpful during the first half of the year. I'm glad I was able to participate.


Thanks for commenting. I love hearing from you!
