So winter is rough on the vehicles here in Michigan. The carpets get trashed by salt and dirty slush etc. The wife has a nice clean and pretty interior now. Why?

Zzman make cleaning carpets easier next winter. Place newspapers underneath the car mats and change out the wet newspapers once a week. Salt stains will be greatly reduced and you'll possibly be happier ;-)

Or get a bunch of old carpet samples. 3 or 4 layers of various widths. Lots of carpet stores will sell samples and excess cuts for cheap.

My wife vacuums her and my cars. I wash them. It works.

Vacuum takes less time than washing (especially since hers is a van).

My wife is willing to work, has no entitlement attitude, and doesn't mind dirty/lousy jobs. I'm very lucky.

Really, I was just trying to " stir the pot".
Northerners aren't near as bad as Californians.
They have ruined their state and seem intent on getting the rest of them also.
Austin is already a lost cause.

Because you sir are a smart man. Me I use my wife's Jeep to test products on from to time to see if they're worth using on my newer ride. hide Good thing she doesn't read this board.
