Just how disgusting is your child's car seat???

If you’re taking a road trip with the kids this Labor Day Weekend, you’ll have a lot on your mind. Sorry to burden you with something else, but the car seat your kid is sitting in is totally disgusting – even to the point of causing a health risk.

British researchers found that the average toilet has about 50 kinds of bacteria in any one area. Car seats? Well, they have about 100 types.

We’re talking about really nasty fungus and bacteria, including Salmonella and E. coli.

So if you have time when you’re packing and scrambling around, getting ready for the trip, consider taking the cover off that car seat and running it through the wash.
