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.

Or move South.

We have enough transplants as it is.

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.
