July 25, 2019—Jalopnik posted a public-service announcement about how dirty vehicle steering wheels can be.

How dirty, in fact? The auto news site referenced a CarRentals.com study that said the steering wheel likely harbors the most bacteria in a car's interior.

"The study found  that the wheel is twice as dirty as the buttons on an elevator, four times as gross as a toilet seat, and six times nastier than a smartphone screen," Jalopnik wrote.

Maybe it's time to ask those techs at the shop to wear gloves before taking the wheel of every customer's car. Better yet, do those customers a solid and give the steering wheel a good wipe-down with each visit.
