Crumbs, sticky fingers, spilled juice and unidentifiable odors: These are most definitely not a few of any parent's favorite things.

After taking swabs from 20 cars and homes, scientists at the University of Birmingham discovered about 100 potentially dangerous bacteria and fungi on every square centimeter, compared to just 50 specimens on a toilet seat!
