Microbiologists at Aston University in Birmingham, England, found that a typical gear shift hosts a whopping 356 germs per square centimeter, making it the germiest spot in your car. And if you drive with pets and kids, bacteria levels soar, along with your chances of getting sick.
Clean the gear shift or gear selector often to stay on the road to better health. If you’re concerned about COVID-19, check out “This Is the Best Way to Kill Coronavirus in Your Car.”
