A MUM has revealed she puts shower caps on her pram wheels to stop mud from getting on the carpet – and parents have hailed her a ‘genius’.
Winter brings with it wet and soggy weather, which can be a nightmare if you have a buggy.
No parent wants to track mud, dirt and wet leaves through their house – or leave their buggy outside to get wet.
To save her carpets from getting grubby, one mum decided to pop £1 shower caps over her buggy wheels.
Sharing her cheap tip to Facebook’s Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK group, she uploaded a snap of her pram covered in Little Mermaid-themed shower caps.
She wrote: “£1 shower caps bought from Poundland.
“Ideal for popping over your muddy wheels to catch the mud when it dries and flakes off.
“Saves your carpets and floors getting dirty.
“You can actually buy wheel covers for this purpose but this is definitely a money saving idea and works so well and you can keep reusing over and over again.”
Her simple yet effective idea has gone down a storm online, with her post racking up nearly 6,000 likes.
One mum wrote: “Bloody ingenious idea there.”
Another said: “Omg this is such a good idea! I’m going shopping tomorrow will definitely be getting some.”
A third commented: “Brilliant idea! Thanks for sharing!”
Someone else added: “Who’s a clever mum.”
This person said: “Why did I never think of this.”
A fellow parent said: “If only I knew this 18 years ago. Genius.”
While this mum added: “Omg this is genius! This is exactly what I need after wet school runs!!”
