As you can see from the infographic, it’s not just toilets and tech items that are germy. A restaurant menu can have up to 100 times more bacteria on it than a toilet seat. Even the steering wheel in your car can have up to five times more bacteria. Imagine what happens if you also happen to be sneezing and coughing in your car.

The research used for the infographic also, most disturbingly, warns that your toothbrush could be contaminated with particles of water from your toilet. Why not just replace it now. Germs can’t get you if you get them first.
