The Polar Vortex and Your Car
What we used to call winter weather is finally on its way. Nowadays we have to use fancy terms like "Polar Vortex" and "Bombo Genesis" to describe what we used to call cold and snow. Cold and snow is boring and unsexy. Polar Vortex? Now you have me listening.
Everything has to have some sort catchy title, so I will call cleaning my car out to prepare for winter, "The Cleanse." I really should do this more often, but when you have kids cleaning anything is like dumping a bucket of water on a forest fire. You might be able to slow the spread of the mess, but it's really just a temporary band aid that won't really do that much.
I choose to clean my car out four times a year. Not surprisingly that coincides with the start of each season. In the spring I can vacuum out any remaining salt, in the summer any mud gets cleaned up, in the fall all the beach sand goes away, and in the winter I prepare our car for the cold and snow.
