WHEN your kids start kicking off in the back of the car, sometimes we give them a snack in the hopes that it'll make them quieten down. Yes, we've all done it.
But while this might buy you a few extra minutes of peace and quiet, one mum has learnt the hard way that sneaking snacks in the car can ruin your seats.
Posting in a cleaning Facebook group, the exhausted mum-of-two – who is currently pregnant with her third child – shared images of her filthy food-stained car.
Admitting that she hadn't cleaned the car in five years, the woman wrote: "I actually can't believe I let it get this bad."
To begin with, the mum hoovered the floor around the seats to get rid of any crumbs and food debris before giving the cushions themselves a good wipe down.
Once she'd got rid of the lingering crumbs, the mum went in with Bissell's £150 carpet cleaner which promises to "quickly and easily lift away spots, spills and stains" from carpets, rugs and upholstery thanks to its specialist detergent and high suction nozzle.

After she shared photos of her newly cleaned car, other members in the group were amazed by the results.
One replied: "Good on you! I usually just pay a guy that comes to your house and does this, you were very brave."
"To be honest I'm thinking about just throwing my whole car out," another added. "You did a great job!"
