Car Wash Gift for Father’s Day

My kids have a pretty awesome dad. And I’m lucky enough to be married to him! We gave him a car wash gift for Father’s Day – we surprised him with an Armor All Gift Pack and a clean truck!

He always works hard for us, but he’s been doing even more the last few months as we bought this house, moved, and have been remodeling. We work on ideas together, and I’m right there with him pounding out tiles or operating the nail gun.

But he’s the one who will study things out for days to find just the right way to fix an issue we’ve run into. Or cash in a vacation day at work just to finish the trickiest parts of the wood floor in the hallway. 

Aren’t we all cute? The kids and I made this giant card for him to go along with the gift bucket I’d grabbed on one of my trips to Walmart.

The front says “You AUTO know how much we love you,” and on the inside we all wrote things we love about him. 

I cut out the letters and the car using my Cricut. You can do the same, or print out the smaller printable version I have available to download here.



Then, we lucked out with some perfect car-washing weather, and washed his truck for him. We started with the Armor All Quick Silver Wheel & Tire Cleaner. Sprayed it on, let it soak for 5 minutes, then sprayed it off with a strong stream of water. 

Next got the whole truck wet and soaped it up using Armor All Ultra Shine Wash & Wax. Then we rinsed and dried so we wouldn’t get water spots. While the tires dried we worked on the interior.

With supplies like the Armor All Cleaning Wipes and Armor All Glass Wipes, the kids were easily able to make it sparkle. The final step was the Armor All Extreme Tire Shine. We sprayed two coats on each tire and just let it air dry. They look brand new, and they’re protected!

Don’t you just love how the gift goes with the cute card! Who would you give one to? Take it a step farther and steam clean the car interior too.
