Sanitize and Clean Your Vehicle in White River Junction

In order to remain healthy in the COVID-19 world, it’s important that you keep your vehicle clean and sanitized. It’s one of your most visited locations, after all! To help with this we’ve compiled three great tips for you to follow. Continue reading below to learn more about what you can do and what we recommend!

Use the Right Cleaners

When it comes to cleaning your vehicle’s interior, we recommend that you use the right cleaners for the job. Specifically, ones that won’t cause damage to your vehicle’s interior. These cleaners include items like alcoholic solutions that have at least 70 percent alcohol content, the recommended amount to kill the COVID-19 virus according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Additionally, soap and hot water, with vigorous cleaning, will also kill the virus.

Clean the Right Surfaces

You should also make sure that you target the right locations with these cleaners. The steering wheel of your model has four times the germs of the average toilet, making it a critical location to clean on your vehicle. Additionally, you should target the door handles, shift lever, any buttons and touchscreens on your model, and similar locations.

Don’t Use These Cleaners

Finally, you should completely avoid cleaners that have bleach, hydrogen peroxide, and ammonia. These chemicals and solutions can, and will, kill the COVID-19 virus, but they will also cause damage to your interior in a way that soap and water, as well as alcohol, will not. We recommend avoiding using these chemicals entirely and, if you don’t have alcoholic solutions, just use basic hot water and soap.
