Gold Eagle Encourages You to Get Your Hands Dirty This Mother’s Day

Tips for Families to Help Mom Enjoy Her Special Day

Mother’s Day is just around the corner and families are searching for the perfect gifts to show mom how much they care. But, instead of simply giving mom flowers or chocolates that will only last a few days, why not get your hands a little dirty and take some items off her to-do list and let her relax on her special day.

“Mom spends so much time taking care of everyone else, so why not spoil her on her special day and help her around the house,” said Marc Blackman, CEO for Gold Eagle Co. “What better way to show you care than to give her the gift of time by taking some items off her household to-do list.”

According to the National Retail Federation, Americans will look for sentimental and unique ways to shower mom with affection this year. Gold Eagle® Co. (“Gold Eagle”), an industry pioneer of aftermarket fluids and additives and maker of STA-BIL®, HEET® and START YOUR ENGINES! ®, has some creative ways that you can spoil mom this Mother’s Day.

Mom always appreciates a little help around the house, so why not:
  • Get the garden ready for flowers or to plant vegetables!—Have Dad get the tiller, blower, and trimmer out of the shed and make sure they are in running order. If they are hesitant to start, try pouring a bottle of START YOUR ENGINES! into the tank and it should start up quickly. Once dad spruces up the area, the kids can start planting seeds and flowers.

  • Mow the yard!—Nothing is nicer than coming home to a house with good curb appeal. But before you get mowing, make sure to take all safety precautions and have dad make sure that the mower is ready—sharpen the blade, check the oil & fuel, wash it, put air in the tires and clean the filter. Then cut away!

  • Pressure wash the deck, patio furniture or house!—After a long winter, all types of dirt have built up on surfaces. Scrub them down and rinse them off well. Then break out the grill, cook her dinner and enjoy a nice family meal together outside!

  • Give Mom’s car a cleaning, inside and out!—Mom deserves a nice, clean ride, so start by vacuuming the inside of the car and wiping down surfaces with a damp cloth. With the help of an adult, check all the fluids and make sure the oil and washer fluids are full. To help protect her car and improve its performance, add an ethanol treatment like STA-BIL. And, don’t forget to do a full washing of the outside of the car, so it gleams as she drives down the road!
