The next time you hail an Uber or Lyft, maybe consider using some hand sanitizer.

A study by Netquote found that the back seat of a ride share is dirtier than a toilet seat.

Researchers found germs that can contribute to food poisoning, pneumonia and yeast infections. The most germs on ride-shares are on the window buttons and seat belts, according to the study.

Experts urge riders to pack hand sanitizer or hand wipes the next time they get in their ride.
