Clean and Safe: How to Sanitize Your Car

Even luxury vehicles can be hubs for germs — but they don’t have to be. If you’re looking for ways to protect your health in these uncertain times, consider these tips on how to sanitize your car.

 

Wear gloves. Don’t begin your deep clean until you have the right tools — and this means putting on disposable gloves. Gloves can help protect your hands from any chemicals you’re using, and will also prevent you from attracting germs. If you’re wearing gloves, though, don’t spread germs by touching your face, phone, or other surfaces.

 

Scrub. From the dashboard and steering wheel to the console and door handles, surfaces in your vehicle can easily capture germs. To clean these surfaces for your safety, use either disinfectant wipes or warm, soapy water. Pay attention to areas that may be the main focus of germs, including areas that may have been coughed or sneezed on.

 

Don’t forget your upholstery. Soft surfaces in your vehicle can absorb a lot of germs, even if you have leather. Make sure you use the proper upholstery cleaner for your car, and use carpet cleaner on your car’s floor mats for a good deep clean.
