Mum covers her car in spray paint after mistaking it for ‘new look vinyl cleaner’

‘Oh my god, what has she done?’

A mum managed to spray paint most of her car interior in white paint after mistaking the can for ‘New Look Vinyl Spray’.

The Mazda looked like it had been vandalised after the poor woman took some time out to give it a good old valet.

Along with the insides of the doors being strewn with paint, the car’s dashboard also took a good coating as well as decent chunks of the passenger seat.

Posting on TikTok, her daughters, Greta and Jayde, from Australia, filmed the moment they realised what she had done.

It turns out their mum mistook a can of Motospray’s ‘New Look Vinyl Spray’ for normal vinyl cleaner – with hilarious consequences.

“Oh my god, what has she done?” Greta says in the video. “She has totally f****d her whole car!”

She then posted the video on TikTok with the sarcastic caption: “When mum thinks spray paint is vinyl cleaner… she got every nook and cranny!”

Some people came to her mum’s defence, saying the label on the can was a bit misleading.

Jenni wrote: “Hands up everyone who still thinks that looks like vinyl cleaner.”

While other said: “I don’t understand that label! That appears to be vinyl cleaner to me too.”

But not everyone was as sympathetic.

Georgia Rae said the label is a “little misleading”, but questioned how she managed to cover the “WHOLE CAR”.

And ‘TheDons82’ asked: “Who sprays all the surfaces before wiping?”
