Our oldest daughter left for the military in October and we were tasked with taking care of her new car while she was gone. The odds are high that she gets holiday leave for Christmas to come home. However, while she is here she has to drive back and forth to the base that is over an hour away to continue her duty. With all the driving for the military and rushing around to see her family and friends before heading out, she will put plenty of mileage on her car. She will not return home again until the end of March, so I know while she is here for Christmas she will practically live out of her vehicle. That’s why I put together this car cleaning gift basket for her.
Preparing Your Vehicle for the Holidays
Since her car has been sitting for a full month, I knew it needed some TLC. I took it to our local Walmart’s Automative Care Center and had her oil changed. Before she left in October her life was pretty hectic. She had already started training at our local military base, she was working full time, and trying to squeeze in as much quality time with her family before being gone for six months. We even took three days to go on a road-trip! So cleaning her car or getting the oil change was put off. She did think about it, because she wrote me a letter asking me to check it for her. I was excited to see that Pennzoil® Platinum Full Synthetic is on Rollback ($49.88 Rollback to $44.88) through December 27, 2016.
Walmart is your one stop shop for preparing your vehicle for the holidays. While the oil was being changed I gathered some items for a car cleaning gift basket. What do you buy a person for Christmas that is currently serving in the military? I knew her vehicle was something she will be using a lot when she come homes. So having simple items to wipe down the dash, keep her windshield clean, and the car smelling fresh was perfect.
Car Cleaning Gift Basket
- Reusable Microfiber Cleaning Towel
- Disposable Cleaning Clothes
- Interior Cleaner
- Windshield Cleaner
- Car Air Freshener – holiday scent
After buying some items to fill the gift basket, I used our home car cleaning kit and got to work. I will not admit how much trash I found in her poor car. When you live a very busy lifestyle, your car can suffer. I know she will be so thankful to come home to a clean vehicle that was well taken care of and ready to be driven around this holiday. Now the outside is sparkling and the inside is new again. Her vehicle has been refreshed from the inside out and under the hood!
Since the Car-Freshner package came with three, I went ahead and used one now so her car will smell nice when she gets in it. The other two I placed in her gift basket.
Pennzoil Platinum® Full Synthetic motor oil with PurePlus™ Technology keeps pistons up to 20% cleaner than required by the toughest industry standard and keeps your engine cleaner than any leading synthetic oil. This is extremely important when preparing for holiday travel. T is located at a base in Missouri where it gets pretty cold in the winter. We are planning a trip to visit her in January for a couple of days. We may even get lucky enough to see some snow! Full synthetic oil performs much better in extreme hot and cold temperatures, which is perfect for living in Texas and traveling north.
