What Do We Use Pretty Often That Has More Germs Than a Toilet Seat?
One GOOD thing that came out of the pandemic is that we’re more aware that germs aren’t only in “dirty” places…like bathrooms.
A new study out of the U.K. says that the average person’s VEHICLE has “significantly” more bacterial contamination than the average toilet seat.
They swabbed the cars all over…and they found the highest concentrations of bacteria are typically in the TRUNK.
The next-nastiest spot was the driver’s seat, followed by the gear stick …then the back seat…and then the dashboard.
The steering wheel had the lowest amounts of bacteria of all the areas they swabbed, and they say that’s probably because people are using more hand sanitizer during the pandemic than they did before.
The main takeaway here… Your trunk can get really gross… especially if you don’t clean it regularly.
So think about that before putting groceries inside!
