From heading out to the grocery store to going out for your daily exercise, your car can become a hub for germs. Now, more than ever, it’s likely that you want to make sure your car is as clean as possible. To help you keep your car clean, follow these tips on how to sanitize your car.
Use gloves. Before you begin cleaning your car, you should consider wearing gloves. Gloves will help protect your hands from any harsh chemicals that might be used. They will also keep you from picking up germs. Remember, though, if you’re using gloves to avoid touching your face, phone, or other surfaces outside your vehicle while you have your gloves on.
Scrub your surfaces. There are a lot of surfaces that you might touch while you’re driving your car, including your radio, door handles, steering wheel, and shift knob. Pay these surfaces special attention while you’re sanitizing your car. Use disinfectant wipes or warm, soapy water to keep your surfaces clean.
Clean your car’s upholstery. Your car’s soft surfaces, such as your seat upholstery or floor mats, can gather germs easily – especially if you’ve sneezed or coughed in their general direction. That’s why you should use appropriate upholstery cleaners for your car’s soft surfaces, giving them a good scrub.
