All of them. My daughter has never made a single mess in the car seat that is truly disgusting on an epic scale. And really, this is the true for most parents.

But it’s the slow and steady buildup of messes over months. Like the proverbial frog in a pot being slowly brought to boil, you just don’t notice it until one day you set out to clean the car. Then you find a soup of various bodily fluids, cheerios, crayons, toys, and everything else.

Really, this post comes at a good time with Mother’s day a couple weeks around the corner. To all new/newish dads here, taking your wife’s car to a professionally detailing place and splurging on “the works” is a great Mother’s day gift. It’s generally about $100, but brings the interior back to show room fresh.
