More Germs - Toilet Seat or Steering Wheel?

A word to the wise - clean the inside of your freakin car more than once a year.

I'm not a complete germ phobe, but kind of freaks me out.

New research has revealed that car steering wheels carry twice as many germs as toilets.

Tests showed that steering wheels averaged 41,600 germs, compared with just 17,400 on a toilet seat.

Yet only 13% of people clean their cars regularly, with 45% rarely cleaning them and 5% never bothering at all.

Knowing that, it can't hurt to keep a bottle of this stuff in your glove box. Especially if you plan to shake my hand, you dirty steering wheel touchers.
