How to disinfect your vehicle

The COVID-19 pandemic has hit us hard and we have had to follow guidelines that are still valid today, such as respecting social distancing and washing our hands often. At the dawn of deconfinement, it is still important to remember as well that our motor vehicle must not be left behind and must be disinfected.

AutoStudio 72 in Mirabel, on the North Shore of Montreal, near Saint-Jérôme, Sainte-Thérèse, Blainville, Boisbriand and Laval, offers a few tips on how to disinfect your vehicle.

A Simple Operation!

First of all, keeping the interior of your car free of harmful viruses and other undesirable elements is actually quite simple if you follow the few tips we have for you. Being so disciplined, it’s important to keep your vehicle clean and disinfected. We recommend a number of simple actions to protect yourself from coronavirus and save you a lot of trouble!

We recommend simply using everyday soap and water. Soap interacts chemically with the surface of the virus to break it down very quickly and destroy it. It would therefore be a good homemade solution to disinfect your car and make sure you get over all the surfaces. In addition, using a cleaner like soap is a key ingredient that’s easy to get—traditional liquid hand or dish soaps, for example. The trick is to avoid cleaners labelled as detergent-free.

Besides, if you’re already a fan of car cleaning products, you’re headed in the right direction and know how easy it is to clean the cabin. The disinfectant wipe, for example, contains a mild detergent. For those with a leather interior, makeup remover wipes are an excellent solution too. Skin care products usually contain moisturizers, which are good for trim organic materials.

Then, if you’re used to an environment where the use of hand sanitizers is encouraged, it may seem counterintuitive, but while alcohol-based products can do a great job of eliminating microbial threats, they’re not really of much use for car interiors.

Finally, be aware that alcohol-based cleaners and detergents can dry out organic materials. They are therefore not recommended for disinfecting your vehicle, as you will not gain safety with such products. In other words, if they leave your hands dry after use, they are likely to undermine the natural oils in your car’s leather interior as well. If you don’t have access to detergent-based cleaners that contain moisturizers, or if you plan to use an alcohol-based cleaner, you can mitigate the drying effects with leather conditioners. These will replenish the oils that your cleaning process has exhausted.

Finally, don’t spend hours disinfecting your car. It should be fun and efficient experience. The first thing you should do is rub the surfaces of the dashboard, touch screen, steering wheel, gearshift, door handles, seats, windows and mirrors, plastic surfaces, etc., with a soft microfiber cloth. These suggestive measures will keep you away from germs and help keep you safe.
