Amid the Coronavirus (COVID-19), when it comes to taking essential trips for food and supplies, we have to keep our vehicles just as clean as our homes. 

According to the Centers For Disease Control (CDC): “It may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.”

10 Areas Of Your Car To Wipe Down After Going Out During The COVID-19 Crisis

1) Steering wheel
2) Seat belt buckle 
3) Door handles, inside and out
4) Car shifter
5) Window control buttons
6) Any touch screens, GPS and radio buttons
7) Turn signals
8) Windshield wiper knob
9) Door armrests
10) Seat adjusters

If you are out of disinfectant wipes, there is a simple alternative. According to the CDC, alcohol solutions that contain at least 70% alcohol should be effective at killing the coronavirus. This means nearly every interior surface of your car can be cleaned with isopropyl alcohol-based cleaners you likely already have around the house.

What NOT To Use When Cleaning Your Car

It is not recommended to use any type of bleach, hydrogen peroxide or ammonia based cleaning products on your vehicle’s interior. Both products will disinfect coronavirus germs, but they will also cause damage to the vinyl and surfaces used in most modern vehicles today.

Just a friendly reminder, Wiygul Automotive Clinic is deemed as an essential business amid the coronavirus crisis. If you are in need of any service or repair, we are here to help!
