With the emergence of COVID-19, people are taking extra precautions when it comes to cleaning and disinfecting their homes. Unfortunately, many people forget to disinfect their vehicles as well. Fortunately, this helpful guide will provide you with a few pointers on how to sanitize your vehicle against COVID-19.
Determine what clean products to use on your seats
The cabin of each vehicle is different, primarily due to the materials they use for their seating and surfaces. You must familiarize yourself with these materials to determine which cleaning products to use. For example, bleach will likely ruin leather surfaces, while too much soap and water can leave your cloth seats with long-lasting damage.
Clean hard surfaces
Speaking of the other surfaces that make up your car’s cabin, this is where viruses like COVID-19 can thrive. Be sure not to overlook areas like your dashboard, touchscreen, and steering wheel while cleaning your cabin, as these are areas of your vehicle’s interior that you likely interact with every day.
Wear gloves while cleaning
Whenever cleaning the cabin of your car, be sure that you are wearing a set of disposable gloves. Not only will you likely be working with chemicals that can irritate the skin, but these gloves can also prevent you from picking up germs and bacteria on your hands. Just be sure to wash your hands after properly disposing your gloves.
