Beware of sharp edges on front seat rails

I had a terrible accident today. I placed a six pack of beer on the rear floor.
After 500 meters it started to smell like beer in the car. I stopped to check and one of the beer cans had punctured. It had hit the end of the drivers seat rail.

If you mean washing the floor mats with beer, yes.

Oh dear.

It might stink for a while and it's not easy to get rid of. Not as bad as milk and nothing like a skunk but still bad.

It might need a full wet shampoo if it gets bad.

I have Mazda rubber mats. Luckily almost all of the beer (1/3 can) stayed on the rubber mat. If I hadn't noticed the smell of beer right away it could have gotten ugly.
