Pre-kids I used to have this perfectly clean car all the time. On the weekends I’d go wash it myself, vacuum and clean out the inside. Oh the glorious days when I used to have all that extra time on my hands! Now that I’m a busy mom on-the-go my car cleaning has completely changed. I don’t know what it is about my kids but apparently they think my car doubles as a trash can, cafeteria, toy storage closet and much more. And actually having time to clean it myself is comical. Thank goodness for The Wash Tub – it is seriously the answer to busy mom’s car cleaning prayers!

If you’ve never been to The Wash Tub it’s truly the BEST and only takes I’d say 20 minutes on average depending on how busy they are at the time you visit. As you can see from the “Before” picture my car was a mess. With all the rain we’ve been having it pretty much looks like this all the time! And now the Oak pollen has started so it gets that nasty yellow tint to it.

But it’s not done there! It comes out super clean but then they pull it to the side and the attendants give it the extra special touch to make sure no spots are missed, clean the wheels, dry it off, etc.

    Hi Tori!
    I feel you. When my husband asks, “Can we clean the car?” I always say, “Are you kidding me?” Cleaning the car is really comical! haha, I feel like my hands are full with the boys and everything. It is good to know about the Wash Tub.
    Thank you for sharing!
