As we are going inside our car and start driving while holding a hamburger in one hand and car steering in another hand, keep in mind that there are nearly 9 times more germs on your car steering that your toilet seat.
Analysis has found that while there are 80% bacteria lurk on each square inch of your bathroom, around 700 harmful bugs inhabit your car’s interior where the car boot is the filthiest area with 1,000 bacteria for every one and half sq. inches. The study also revealed that 42% of drivers are eating while they are driving.
Only 1/3 drivers cleaned the interior of their cars once a year, while 10% mentioned that they never bother to do vacuum or cleaning the inside spaces of their car.
It is a fact that most people prefer to clean their homes rather than spending their time to clean the interior side of their cars. This practice can let you driving a car which can resemble a ‘hidden’ thrash bin as a car is the perfect place for germs to breed particularly if you eat in it and leave litter or uneaten food around.
This is an important matter that every driver should concern about as most of us are currently using cars in our daily life to go to our destinations – sometimes for a long period.
Make sure that you make cleaning the interior of your car as your daily/weekly habit to help in avoiding potential health risks from bacteria.
