With kids, or without, a car can get messy (pets also add onto this). Sometimes in ways that can’t even be explained, or witnessed. It just appears. That’s happened to Best Handheld Vacuums for Carsme no doubt and it wouldn’t be surprising if I was to find out it happens to countless others as well (which it does). Nonetheless, a mess is a mess, regardless of how it appeared.
