These days, it’s best to be as safe as possible when it comes to sanitation. Whether you’re an essential employee driving to work each day, or just taking your vehicle out once every other week for groceries, it’s important to know how to sanitize your vehicle to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Scrub Down Hard Surfaces
Gather up some hand soap or dish soap and start by tackling all of the hard surfaces of your car. Any soap is effective in killing the coronavirus, so no need to make an extra trip to the store for antibacterial soap. Leave no surface unwashed, and pay particular attention to areas that are regularly touched or that might get sneezed on, like door handles and the dashboard.
Clean Fabric Surfaces
Fabric surfaces in your vehicle may also collect germs and should be cleaned as well. Use whatever type of cleaner is suggested for the upholstery, be it leather cleaner for leather seats, or upholstery shampoo for cloth seats. It’s also possible to clean these surfaces with bleach-free spray or wipes, as long as you first test it out on a small area.
Don’t Forget the Back Seats
If you have kids, you’ll want to pay special attention to the surfaces they frequently touch. Wipe down car seats, rear entertainment systems, and climate controls. Remove all toys and accessories from the car and give them a good wash, according to label instructions.
