Driving with germs?

We spend on average 1.5 hours in our car every day. While we often commute with passengers onboard, ever consider those Unwanted Passengers?

The typical car can contain 283 different types of bacteria on every interior square centimeter.2

Passengers that go by the name of: Salmonella Choleraesuis (salmonella), Staphylococcus Aureus (staph), Pseudomonas Eeruginosa

Yes, the interiors of our vehicles are not only susceptible to dirt and dust, but can also be a breeding ground for unwanted passengers in the BACTERIA FAMILY.

We can’t see them.
We can’t hear them.
But they are there.

Harmful bacteria, lurking on the steering wheel, in the cup holders and change holders, on the door handles, window openers and gear shift, and on the dashboard.

A Cleaning Ritual?

Not So Much...

We clean our homes regularly, but not so much our cars. Vehicles are generally dirtier than our homes, having 17,000 times more bacteria.1

Did you know ?

Vehicles can have more organisms living on the surfaces than the average toilet seat? 2

Cup holders can contain 228% more bacteria than the average toilet seat.3

The gearshift can be the dirtiest, containing a whopping 356 germs every square centimeter.5

The change holder is the 3rd place in your car containing the most bacteria.6

Steering wheels can contain 700 bacteria per square inch.4

Dashboard food spills can contain 10x more bacteria than the radio knob or seat belt and generally contains the second highest number of bacteria.7
