Cleaning the Car with Your Kids

Cleaning the Car with Your Kids

We don't have a lot of extra outside jobs around our house in the summertime. We don't have a garage, we don't have to cut our own grass, and any upkeep is done by the people we rent from. One thing we do a lot more of in the summertime though, is clean our car.

This is a job that I love including the kids for. They love it, too!

We get buckets, fill them with warm, soapy water, grap the sponges, and get to work! (See that thing Katrina has on her hand in the photo above? Ken found it at the dollar store & it looks hilarious, and the kids love using them :)

There's a lot of scrubbing and it's all followed by hosing the whole thing down (another favourite part)... and sometimes a little people-spraying mixed in for extra fun ;)

Next, we clean the interior- grab a grocery bag and fill it with any garbage that's been left on the floor or in any compartments. Then get the vacuum and go to town on the inside.

After vacuuming & tidying up the interior of the car, I've been using Lysol's Fabric Mist to feshen up the scent of the car! And Lysol's wipes are great for the hard surfaces on the inside of the car.

Do you have a summer job that you love to include your kids for?
