2004 Toyota Prius: Soap and Water

September 23, 2010

arm rest 001.jpg

My roommate in college had a denim couch that he absolutely loved, but the rest of us hated. It had a sickening dark sheen to it from plenty of pizza grease, cigarette ash and spilt beer. We nicknamed it "Deal Breaker" because its vile presence would horrify any woman that came to our apartment.

After a few weeks and 10k+ miles in the Mojave, the Prius has become the new "Deal Breaker." The combination of dirt and sunscreen has made the drivers side arm rest akin to that damned couch. When I drove the Prius, I made sure my skin and clothing did not touch the armrest.

I think it's time for a thorough cleaning.
