Family Fun Cleaning the Car! (Giveaway)

After a long winter, our car is usually in its worst shape ever.  It's way too cold outside to be spending any extra time cleaning, so we put it off as long as we can and when the nice weather finally hits, the car needs some love!  It feels SO much better to get into a clean car than a messy one!

This Spring, we took the Armor All Spring Kick Off Challenge!  We were able to try a Spring Cleaning Starter Kit with all kinds of car cleaning supplies to spiff up our car and boy did our car need it!


I loved the idea of this little vacuum that plugs into your cigarette lighter. It was fun to use! (I was a nice mom and let Talia give it a try too ;) I can remember helping my dad to vacuum out our van when I was younger and I thought it was fun!  I love getting the kids involved with things like this because they actually have fun while they work- it's a great lesson and a fun family activity in one!

(They loved the vacuum, the wipes, and the window spray... they didn't love gathering all of the garbage they had thrown on the floor from their snacks!! ;)


One of the most satisfying things about the Spring Cleaning of a vehicle is how noticable the "before and after" can be! I took a picture of the back of the seat that Katrina's feet (and consequently her dirty shoes and boots) tend to kick. DIRTY! After some easy cleaning with Armor All wipes, the "after" is impressive!  I also appreciate that the wipes kill bacteria, so I know the car is germ-free for my kids.


I didn't take a before & after shot of the upholstered seat in the car but I wish I had! I used the Carpet & Upholstery cleaner on our seats and I was so impressed!! It feels like we're getting into a brand new car now! (I didn't even think it was possible for them to get as new looking as they do now!) It's a fun product to use too, because it comes out like a foam and then it has a fun little scrubby nozzle (they call it a bristled cap.. maybe I should use the correct terminology ;) on the end that you scrub it with.

We definitely have that "new car" smell in there now, too. (My kids don't like it. I'm okay with that, because I'm excited to try some of their car air fresheners! They sent us one that clips onto your air vent and has scented oil in it (Wild Berry scent) and I'm excited to get that smell going! (Pretty sure I won't have any complaints about that smell ;)

Is all this clean car talk making you want to get your hands on some of your own Armor All products??  Well, you're in luck because we're giving away this gift pack filled with Armor All car care necessities!

  3. I still need to Spring Clean my car...even though it's almost Summer.

    I spend a lot of time in the car. Whether commuting for work, carpooling the kids, or just plain traveling, I make it more convenient by stocking the car with mom essentials.

    I wrote about it recently on my blog: http://outsidetheboxmom.com/2014/03/04/essentials-every-mom-car/

    Thanks for sharing your tips,
