Sanitise the high touch areas in your car
Do not forget to clean tiny nooks and crevices. Spray a disinfectant on them and then wipe them off using a cotton cloth. Keep the armrest, display screen, radio control, gears, and paddle shifts clean. Sanitise them before you start driving. You can use any soap solution to disinfect these surfaces.
Do not forget to clean the seats
Seats are always ignored when it comes to cleaning the interiors of a car. Car seats accumulate germs and that can be hazardous for you during the current time. So, it is extremely important to wipe down seats especially if you have given a lift to someone.
Focus on steering wheel too
Steering wheel is one of the germiest surfaces you can ever touch. It is 4 times more contaminated than an average toilet seat. So, it is significant to clean and disinfect the steering wheel thoroughly.
