Research reveals that the average public toilet seat hosts 80 germs per square inch, while the average steering wheel is home to over 700! That's pretty frightening news considering that over 75% of infectious diseases are spread by hands touching every- day surfaces.

Scarier yet, the steering wheel is far from the most germ ridden vehicle surface. Gear shift handles and trunks come in between 1500 - 2000 germs per square inch each.

Is Your Car Making You or Your Passengers Sick?

While any confined space that is frequented by people is prone to microbial activity, increased vehicle use, the popularity of ready-to-eat food and our habit of consuming it in our vehicles, as well as other lifestyle changes, have put drivers and passengers at greater risk of infection. And for motorists whose passengers include those with four legs, or someone who may be ill, wearing dirty shoes or dirty clothes, or even if that extra passenger is nothing more than a bag of trash from your last snack, the risks skyrocket.

Worse yet, there's been little opportunity to improve this situation. While there is a wide range of upholstery, carpet and other surface cleaners on the market expressly formulated for automotive interiors, very few offer any microbial protection. And, even if they did, it would be all but impossible to thoroughly treat a passenger cabin's many different areas, components and materials with them, let alone under its seats and dashboard or throughout its heating, air conditioning and ventilation system's duct work. Further, any disinfection provided would be very temporary, disappearing completely the instant the product dried.Until now.

The Science Behind PermaSafe

Conventional disinfectants and antimicrobials kill microbes by poisoning them with toxic chemicals. Even those that achieve results with nontoxic ingredients are designed to both act and dissipate quickly to avoid harm to humans and animals. Unfortunately, as soon as the disinfectant evaporates, so does its antimicrobial capabilities.

Unlike other antimicrobials, PermaSafe SHIELD is non-toxic, non-corrosive, non-hazardous, odor free, environmentally neutral, and can remain antimicrobially active for the life of the surface to which it's applied.
