A Mount Isa mum has created a clever hack for dealing with children’s mess in the car once and for all.
“I’m a complete neat freak and I’m always looking for ways to make life easier,” Rebecca told Better Homes and Gardens.
“I spotted the pet hammock and thought I’d give it a try,” she said.
She simply stretches the hammock over the head rests on each seat and secures with the adjustable straps.
“Now my boys can enjoy a snack without me having to vacuum the car each day,” she explained.
“Then I just slide it out, shake it off, give it a wipe over and pop it back on.”
The hammock also comes in handy in the Australian outback.
“In Mount Isa we have lots of red dust so the hammock is fantastic as it keeps the dust out of the carpet and seats. It’s a huge time saver.”
The hack made waves on the Kmart Hacks & Décor Facebook page.
“That’s an awesome idea!!” said one woman. “[I’m] so gonna try this [with] my twins.”
“OMG you are a genius!!!” another commenter added.
However some members of the group urged caution when using the pet hammock in the car.
“In [the] event of an accident your car seats will not be covered by your insurance,” warned one woman.
“I was told that you cannot put any fabric under a car seat,” added another.
