That Time Faolan Pooped in the Jeep-or Why I Need a Cargo Liner. (Solvit Giveaway!)

So last summer, Faolan pooped in the Jeep.  It was a cool day, I was at a friend's house, and left him in there for five minutes.  And he pooped.  (If you're interested, the friend's house I was at runs a non-profit SAR group.  Check them out!)  Anyways, she helped me to clean it up as best we could, but some of the poop got ground into the carpet in the cargo area.  So it was a lot of fun cleaning it out once we got back to the house.

Or that time earlier this spring, when he peed in my Subaru...

Anyways, between poop, pee, fur, drool, and three large, furry dogs, it is quite apparent that I need a cargo liner.

Enter Solvit and their Waterproof Sta-Put SUV Cargo Liner.  I am a fan of the company, owning one of their large dog ramps.  I love that they encourage owners to have active lives with their dogs.

The liner is designed to fit the largest of SUV's, and can easily be used for smaller SUV's. It could also be used to cover the backseat of a car.  When I am travelling with my dogs, I fold the back seats of my Forester down, and the liner covers nearly the entire area.  When the seats are returned to their original position, it stays put.

The cargo liner is held in place by pieces of velcro that will adhere to the fabric/carpet in cargo areas, but is also easily removed.

What's Great About This Product

  • It's waterproof.  See above for why this is a good thing.
  • Fur can easily be swept or vacuumed out, instead of weaving itself into the fabric or carpet fibers. 
  • It stays in place, but is easily removable.
  • It is machine washable.
  • It is a nice neutral color, and I don't mind leaving it in my car when I'm driving around without a canine copilot.  
I am a fan of the cargo liner.  Perhaps now I can attempt to remove the fur that is seemingly reproducing in my cargo area, and feel confident that a minimal amount will now be present. I am hopeful to never again know the struggle of removing poop and/or pee from the carpet of my cargo area.

  1. Okay, I know I needed to comment on the Cargo-liner... but those specimens (Drool, fur and other stuff) just made my day!

  2. That looks like a great cargo liner. Mom will NEVER forget the day she was bringing Phantom home from one of his grooming visits. When she got in the car with him, he started to whine and whine as she drove along a very busy street. It had started to snow and she didn't have her boots on. She is so afraid of falling and breaking her fragile bones that she decided to keep goin. Home was less than five minutes away. Poor Phantom couldn't wait - he had terrible diarrhea and it landed in every crack and crevice of the seat belt holes and all over the seats and carpet of Mom's less than a month old new Toyota Highlander.It took a heavy industrial cleaning at the detailing shop and almost $500 to get the smell out. How very helpful one of these liners would have been!!! Poor Phantom was absolutely mortified at what he had done, but it was truly beyond his control.
