You can thank the gals over at The Parent Bloggers Network for turning me into a car-cleaning Quick Draw McGraw, because today is TKC Auditions' stop on the tour for Blink Products, billed as Mom's Car Solutions.
If you've ever read my 100 things, you'll know I'm a sucker for a bunch of cleaning products. They make me very, very happy. Receiving a box of color coded, compact boxes with built-in hangers on the back was orgasmic. My 100 things also notes that my car is silver because it shows less dirt. On the outside. The inside is usually a wreck, too. Snacks eaten as we run between school and activities, sand and dirt and colored markers have all played their part in befouling my minivan's interior.
Don't even get me started on the time someone dropped a little plastic package of barbecue sauce and then stepped on it, spraying four seats and the center console with reddish brown sauce. We were miles from home, and I had to try to remedy the situation with a disposable diaper and saliva. Just think how my life would have been improved if I had a little packet of wet wipes designed for just this purpose, clipped somewhere useful? Could you just die? How perfect would that have been?
I'll admit, I sort of scoffed at the whole Mom's Car business. But really, when you think about transporting little messy monkeys, who else but a mom is going to appreciate the genius of these fun little weapons of car cleanliness. Just clipping these products onto my driver's side door compartment makes me feel like yelling:
"Bring it on, kids! I can wipe all the evidence away!" Maybe they could design a sister-line for Blink for criminals.
There are five products in the line. Little adorable mesh bags to capture clutter (awesome) and a set of 40 drawstring trash bags (who knew how useful these could be? I mean, seriously?) plus wet wipes designed for upholstery and carpeting stains, super-absorbant dry wipes for spills (save those disposable diapers for the baby!) and my personal favorite - the fingerprint/glass cleaning spritzer with little wipes tucked right next to the spray nozzle. Hello! It is adorable and really quite effective.
These products will be available soon at major retailers. You gotta check them out.
Be sure to pop over to Blink's site to get the skinny, and check out what the rest of the Parent Bloggers have to say about my favorite new Mommy's Little Helpers.
