Medical experts are currently recommending disinfecting surfaces to protect from coming in contact with the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19. Here are some suggestions to keep your car clean and safe.
Clean hard surfaces
Disinfectant wipes, as well as regular hand or dishwashing soap,p takes care of the coronavirus, so there is no need to buy fancy cleaners. Simply wipe down the dashboard, interiors door panels, and all exterior handles. Pay special attention to the areas where aerosolized droplets would be likely to fall when people sneeze or cough inside the car. Make sure to disinfect frequently touched areas such as the steering wheel and shifting knob.
Touch screens need special treatment. Do not wipe them directly with disinfectant wipes. Instead, spray an alcohol-based product made for electronics onto a microfiber cloth and gently wipe the screen.
Clean fabric and leather
Don’t forget the seats, especially if you have small children. Use a bleach-free fabric or leather cleaner to keep upholstered seats clear of the virus. If you don’t have a special leather cleaner, use a conditioner after wiping the leather seats.
Carry disinfectant wipes and hand sanitizer in the car for easy clean-ups while you are out. When you get home, wash your hands and put on gloves before disinfecting your vehicle.
