These Are The Most Disgusting Messes Your Kids Have Left In Your Car

CountersteerYour true stories of good and bad things that happen in cars.

From what I can tell, when you have kids, you pretty much accept the fact that there’s going to be a mess somewhere at some point. Especially if you bring them into your car.

Last week, I asked you what the grossest, most disgusting mess your kids ever made in your car was.


When my brother and I were little, my parents took us on a great trip to the Canadian Rockies. This trip involved a long car ride. So, stupidly, before the car ride, my brother loaded up on ice cream. He started crying immediately after we started driving because his stomach wasn’t feeling well.

My parents fed him some ginger ale and... all of the ice cream came up, all over my brother, his car seat and the back seat of the rental car. Pleased that his stomach was now relieved, my brother fell asleep in his own vomit and left the rest of us to deal with the stench for the next few hours because we were in the middle of nowhere and couldn’t clean out the car easily.

Even after we got to the hotel and my dad spent the next hour trying to clean out the car with what cleaning supplies he could get his hands on, the fetid stench of vomit never quite came out of the rental’s cloth seats for the duration of the trip. My dad also started carrying plastic bags in every car he drove after that. I guess it only takes one time for you to learn.


Now, let’s take a look at what disgusting messes you guys have had to deal with.

P.S. Your photos make me want to cry. The stories themselves have me screaming internally.
