Do you have a stinky car? Please, tell me it isn’t just me? We can’t seem to keep this thing clean. Even with our very strict “NO EATING IN THE CAR” policy. (Yeah right, that lasted all of a week.) I mean, sometimes you just have to eat on the run. And that means crumbs and forgotten cups and wrappers and fries. Gross.
I came up with a little hack to keep that under control. I bought a cereal container with a lid from the Dollar Store (for ONE dollar, holla!) I put extra baggies in the bottom and then lined the container with another baggie.
Now, the kids put their garbage IN the container instead of on the floor. It’s working. So far, so good!
But, the car still smells. Spring sports and swim lessons overlapped with each other, so we have a TON of equipment in the car at once. And, it’s been super rainy here, so everything is kind of damp and moldy. That adds a lot of nasty to the aroma of our car.
Seriously, check out what I have in back of the car right now!
Welcome to my car hoard.
2 damp swim towels, 1 damp sports chair, 1 damp raincoat, umbrella (also damp), nasty old shoes, damp soccer cleats, socks and shin guards, 1 bag of wet swim stuff, golf stuff, more soccer stuff, tee ball stuff, sweaty hat, pool toys. Nice, right?! Disgusting. We do clean it out, but then we have to bring most of it back in. So, it kind of smells no matter what.
But, I found another solution. I started using a new PERK Visor Wrap. It is awesome! Our car smells so good now.
Every time we get in the car, my kids breath in deeply and sigh, “Oh, it smells so good in here.” Which is a really nice change of pace from the previous moans and gags of, “Oh my gosh! What is that smell?!”
I’m really liking the visor wrap because it’s simple, I just wrapped it around my visor. It isn’t bulky and it blends right in with my car interior. It won’t spill or leak and the StediScent technology delivers consistent fragrance. The scent doesn’t fade.
They have several nice pleasant scents. We went with Caribbean Colada and it’s just right for summer.
