I am forever picking up rubbish from my car, be it bottles fo water, bits of shredded paper, raisins/fruit flakes (children seem to excrete these somehow!).
I look after children from 6 months - 13 yrs old and of course the older ones get told to pick up after themselves but it still feels as though i am having to hoover the inside of my car once a week & that's too often given how precious little time I have off at the mo.
Any tips other than no eating/drinking in car (which is a bit mean as I don't have a top of the range BMW I am just a lazy toe rag!)
Well, I minded for 12 years and I never found a solution to the glitter, sparkly sprinkles and pasta pieces that were constantly left in the foot wells of my car! The little darlings always wanted to hold their pictures in car of the way home from playgroups and then pick off all the bits on the way!
Nowt wrong with a drinking and eating ban imho. Surely, you are never more than 10-20mins away from home? Also make an effort to put all things painted and stuck in the boot. That way, at least you'll only have to hoover the boot and who looks in there anyway!
I always have a clean car work and personal! I'm quite pedantic about it. I don't allow the children to eat except on rare occasions of late journeys home etc I also take the car to the car wash in and out every 2 months they do a great job for only £10. To me it is disgusting to have a really filthy car inside and very unhygienic! Sure children make a mess but it can and should be cleared up! I would be so embarrassed if someone got in my car that hadn't been cleaned in months or years
