I'll be brief. My idea is to use under-utilized insect species. I saw some ants dragging a crispy brown McDonald's french fry and I had a half-baked thought. I have lots of fries under my car seats that I simply cannot get at...but an ant...

Just imagining leaving your dirty car overnight in at the Formicidae Center. Driver ants are introduced into the car's interior in order to clean it of all food. (fries, crumbs, jellies, etc.) The car is cleaned of all food matter, and then the ant move on to the next vehicle.

       How will you get them to do what you want?   

       They will have to be very hungry to remove all of the food.

       GIant, clever, as for getting them to do what I want--chemical scent...I don't know...I just make this crap up.

       You can't make this crap up.
