If you like the beach and the outdoors, but hate getting ‘crap’ all through the car, you’ll love the muk mat – a portable mat, designed to remove the sand and dirt from your feet before getting back in the car. Made from aesthetically pleasing grass and locally crafted, with sleek binding to suit your style, it not only looks great but it’s durable, rollable and unbeatable for getting the muk off feet and shoes. It’s perfect for outside the car boot after the beach; sticking by your tent door when camping; or keeping flat in the back of the car to throw the wet clothes and dirty shoes on. RRP $40, or two for $70. www.mukmat.com
About Suzanne Horton (featured in all attached pictures)
I grew up on the beach, being in the surf every day – I was a water baby. Then when I had my first son, in 2005 I took up surfing. Now nothing makes me happier than surfing with my family.
By the time I had my second son, we were always outdoors – surfing, camping, mountain biking, doing triathlons. I also knew having two boys, life was going to get busy and messy.
The problem was we were forever using all sorts of buckets to change from the wetsuits and clean the sand, or to keep the dirt from getting everywhere. The muk mat concept started with a DIY prototype that we took with us when we went to the beach and the kids’ footy games. Every time I rolled out the mat, I had people approaching me saying what an amazing idea it is and asking where they could get one. They are just so practical.
