If cleanliness is next to godliness then the Muk Mat elevates the status of the caravan doormat to divine intervention. In a bid to keep the muck out of their caravan and car, a Queensland family came up with what’s now a great business idea – the Muk Mat. It’s a pretty simple concept, and as with all good ideas, it does the job without fuss. We have discussed carpet in vans, and it’s not widely accepted practice, mainly for the point of keeping things clean.

Read about the "Rad" Dad of the muk mat family.

Muk Mat founders, Tod and Suzanne Horton are an Aussie couple with a background in health and business. They have two very active boys and the whole family are keen surfers, mountain bikers, runners and campers. Originally, Muk Mat came about as a solution to keep the sand, dirt and grass out of their car after a surf. Then they found it useful for cleaning their shoes after running, footy, golf, riding and camping. They’d pop their 'patch of grass' on the ground, clean their feet and complete strangers would and ask what it was, where they got it and where they could get one. Outdoria caught up with Tod, the rad dad of the family, to get the lowdown on what he loves about getting outdoors. "The outdoors energises and relaxes me all at the same time," says Tod. "Getting outdoors and into nature is the perfect way to stay fit, healthy and happy. Our most memorable family experiences are when we are outdoors, be it hiking, surfing, mountain biking or just exploring new areas. Nature is the best remedy."
