WAYS TO KEEP YOUR CAR CLEAN IF YOU HAVE KIDS

There’s a lot to say about the joys of par­ent­ing but, boy, can kids be messy! Un­less you have a daily clean­ing ser­vice to keep your ve­hi­cle spot­less, here are ways to lessen the mess.

WOW (Women on Wheels) - - WOW -

Teach your kids to take re­spon­si­bil­ity and to get in­volved in look­ing af­ter your car. WOW’s ed­i­tor, Juliet McGuire, notes that a great line to teach and live by is, “If they are old enough to carry it to the car, they’re old enough to carry it back to the house.”

Make tidy­ing up fun. Get your kids in­volved by turn­ing clean­ing into a game. See who can col­lect the most rub­bish, or get them to count who had fewer of their own items left in the car.

Moist wipes are not just use­ful when a stinky nappy needs to be changed. Wipe down all your car’s hard sur­faces at the end of ev­ery school run to keep things shiny.

Keep a bin or plas­tic bag in your car and empty it at the end of the day.
