How to keep your car safe from Covid-19

It is a good idea to wash or sanitize your hands before you get into your vehicle. Additionally, it would be a good idea to sanitize the steering wheel and high touch areas of your vehicle…often

What to Use to Sanitize Your Vehicle

There are lots of various products that you can purchase to do the job. However, spending lots of money on fancy products is not necessary. Chances are that you have everything you need to sufficiently sanitize your vehicle sitting around your home.

· Soft cloth or microfiber cloth

· Soap and Water

An alternative to using alcohol is soap and water combined with some elbow grease. The action of rubbing and scrubbing combined with soap and water has shown that it can damage the protective layer of the virus cell. If you have leather interior, especially if it is older, soap and water may be more preferred over alcohol. In any case, whether you use alcohol or soap and water on your leather interior, you will want to follow up with a leather conditioner to help protect the leather from the wear and tear of being sanitized consistently.
