In the car, with kids, dogs, long trips, food, stains are bound to happen, from tracking in something on your shoe to spilling coffee or juice, a leaking pen, makeup, these stains happen. Your car is important; you need it to get around, to work, to take the kids to school, to run errands, to go on holidays. You love your car, and you want to keep it clean, but you also don’t want to become that dictator who won’t allow food, drink, pets etc. in their car, and says – don’t forget to wipe your feet.

Stains happen

While you can try and avoid it as much as you can, it can be still stressful when a stain or mark appears.
