There’s no time like the present to ensure your car is clean. As you might suspect, your car can be a hub for germs — but it doesn’t have to be. There are many ways to keep your vehicle safely sanitized, and you can start by following these tips.
Wear gloves. Before you start cleaning, make sure you put on some disposable gloves. These gloves will help protect your hands against any harsh chemicals you might be using. They will also help prevent the spread of germs. If you’re wearing gloves, remember that you shouldn’t touch anything but your car and cleaning supplies. If you want to scratch your nose or touch your phone, take your gloves off first.
Scrub it down. Your car’s hard surfaces should be scrubbed with either disinfectant wipes or warm, soapy water. Pay attention to any hot spots where germs might be more prevalent, including your centre console, dashboard, and interior and exterior door handles.
Pay attention to soft surfaces. Soft surfaces can absorb dirt and germs easily, making them one of the most important parts of your vehicle to clean. Use the proper cleaner for your car’s upholstery and really give it a deep clean. Also, consider using carpet cleaner on your car’s floor mats to ensure any dirt is gone after you’re finished. It will leave your car’s interior looking — and smelling — like new.
