It’s the season for colds and flues. You try and take precautions by making sure everyone washes their hands and taking the time to disinfect common household surfaces, but what about your car. 

You use your vehicle, you drive it just about every day, chauffeuring the kids to and from school, driving to work, not to mention all those weekend activities and who can’t help but eat and drink in our car. If you’re like me and over 80% of dog owners who take their best friend in the car with them, there is probably more germs and bacteria festering in your car than you think. 

Is Your Car Making You Sick?
