You guys, I’ve got to brag on my hubby for a minute. Seriously, he’s just such an amazing dad. No matter what our two boys throw at him he handles it with a patience that I can most surely say I do not possess. And while I try to tell him what a great dad he is daily, sometimes I feel like he just doesn’t realize that our family would never be what it is without his guidance and love.
So, with Father’s Day coming up, I decided it was time to show dad how important he is to us and we wanted to do it in a big way. First, I had to come up with a plan. Now if you know anything about the five love languages, you know that every person has their own unique language that makes them feel loved. And while for so many years I’ve thought that simply giving gifts made my hubby feel like the star of our family that he is, I just discovered recently that the REAL way to make my hubby feel treasured is through acts of service. Now what does that mean? Well, quite simply it means that more than just getting a gift, the special dad in my family’s life loves when we take things a step further and do some of the tasks that are important to him so that he can sit back and relax….like washing his car.
Now I know you’re thinking “Uh-huh, typical man and his car…” but for the dad in our life the reason is a little different. You see, when we met almost 9 years ago, he had a sports car. But after falling for a single mom of a cute little boy, he realized that his sports car didn’t have room for a car seat in the back. So he did what any amazing husband and father does and went out a bought a four door truck with room for multiple car seats for our growing family (I told you he was a keeper didn’t I?). Knowing that his old sports car was kind of his pride and joy, the kids and I decided that we would say I love you by giving his truck a good spiffing up so that while it couldn’t be transformed into sports car, it sure could shine like one!
To start our special surprise, we had to get the right tools (of course). After all, the hubs has taught our boys that if you’re going to do something you need to do it right. So we headed to Walmart in search of the items we would need to really make over his car. Now, I’ll be the first to admit that I was kind of clueless about really cleaning a car. But thankfully right on the end cap at Walmart, we saw something that caught our attention.
The Armor All Car Care Gift Pack 10-Piece Bucket had everything we needed to clean dad’s car to the max in one easy location. And since my own dad had used Armor All growing up, I already knew that it was a product that helps preserve and protect the value and appearance of cars! With tire cleaner, glass wipes, protectant and more, it was the perfect tool to help ensure that this Father’s Day was extra memorable! Armed with our perfect purchase we headed home so the boys could get to work on their perfect gift for their truly amazing dad.
Once we arrived home, we had to pop the Armor All Car Care Gift Pack 10-Piece Bucket open. Now I know you may be thinking it should have stayed closed for perfect Father’s Day gifting but we had an idea! In addition to giving him the products in the bucket, we were going to show how well they worked (remember that whole bit on acts of service?)
After a little fibbing on my part to get the hubs to trade cars with me, we got to work making his car sparkle like it never had before. My younger son helped me wash the body of the car using the car wash sponge, Ultrashine Wash and Wax and the bright bucket.
And at the same time my older son go to work making the tires shinier than they had ever been with the QuickSilver Wheel and Tire Cleaner and the Extreme Tire Shine!
We quickly saw that with the right products it was super easy to turn his dirty truck into a truly shiny way to say I love you! And since the Armor All products go beyond just washing to help maintain the appearance of a car for the long term, we also knew that we were helping the special dad in our life to ensure his car looked just the way he wanted it to for some time to come.
With the outside of the car sparkling, we grabbed the glass wipes and started cleaning the inside but as we were doing it, we realized that quite honestly his car could smell better. Determined to give him the full car makeover, I quickly headed inside and mixed up some homemade spray air freshener for the inside of his car.
It was as easy as taking 1/4 tablespoon of baking soda and mixing in a few drops our lavender essential oil. Once those ingredients were well mixed, we added the scented baking soda to our small spray bottles.
Then we filled the bottles up with water and shook them well.
And that was it! Instant homemade spray air freshener!
With the car clean, we spritzed a little air freshener on the inside and the stored the spray bottle in the middle console for easy use anytime the car needed a little freshening up.
Then all that was left to do was have the boys place the Armor All Car Care Gift Pack 10-Piece Bucket by the truck and wait for the look of surprise on their daddy’s face when he got home!
And I have to say, his level of surprise didn’t disappoint! We could instantly tell that he was thrilled with the time we had spent cleaning his car as well as the Armor All Car Care Gift Pack 10-Piece Bucket that ensured many more car washes were in the future.
And while his surprise may have come a little before Father’s Day, it ensured that this coming weekend as we celebrate him, he’ll be able to sit back, relax and know that his car is cleaner than he ever dreamed thanks to Armor All and some car-friendly TLC from his two boys.
