Whether you use it to get groceries, transport your children, or to get to and from work, your vehicle can pick up a lot of germs along the way. If you’re looking for a way to keep your car clean, start by following these tips on how to sanitize your car.
Scrub down your car’s hard surfaces. You and your passengers probably touch or breathe on quite a few of the surfaces inside your vehicle, from the steering wheel and door handles to the infotainment controls and shift knob. These surfaces can easily capture germs, which is why you need to wipe them down thoroughly with either disinfectant wipes or warm, soapy water.
Remember your upholstery. Whether you have luxury leather seats or cloth ones, make sure you clean the soft surfaces of your car. Use the appropriate upholstery cleaner for your car’s seating, and don’t forget to use carpet cleaner on the floor mats, too.
Don’t forget gloves. For your own safety, you should consider wearing gloves while you’re cleaning your car. Not only will they protect your hands from any harsh chemicals you use, but they will also prevent the spread of germs, keeping you in good health. Remember, though — don’t touch your face, phone, or other surfaces when you have your gloves on.
