The car is perhaps one of the things we use the most every day and, unfortunately, it is not immune to this disease. Therefore, we share this guide that will guide you in the process.

1. Before disinfecting, clean

Yes, it is very good that you want to disinfect your vehicle and all its surfaces, but before that take into account that it must be clean first. 

Therefore, before starting this second process, first make sure to clean it as you do regularly, in order to remove dirt and other contaminating elements. Once your vehicle is clean, then we can start disinfecting.

2. Focus on the wheel

The steering wheel of a car can be up to 4 times dirtier than a toilet, making it one of the most dangerous places in your vehicle. 

To clean it, use disinfecting cloths, preferably every time you get in the car. Also, remember to clean all the parts of this part, front, back and sides, even if you think you do not touch it everywhere. In no way use chlorine, as you can damage the components of this part.

You may not think about this very often, but you'd be surprised at how many things you touch when you're in your car. 

That's why you should make sure to disinfect every thing that comes in contact with you as often as possible: the gear lever, the door handles, the air conditioning knobs, the radio buttons, the air conditioning vents and the rear-view mirror. 

They are the most common elements in being touched by who is driving. To disinfect, use disinfecting cloths, but also remember to clean all surfaces and not just the faces you think you touch. 

If your vehicle has a touchscreen, we recommend Clorox Wipes, as they are the ones Apple recommended to its iPhone users.

However, keep in mind that if the garments are leather, they could be dried with the disinfectant, so it is advisable to use a skin conditioner after cleaning or, in any case, to better use a soap and water solution.

5. Vacuum the mats

Floor mats are perhaps one of the most dangerous parts of your car's interior, as they are in constant contact with your shoes. 

To disinfect them in the best way, it is recommended to vacuum them, wash them and even use disinfectant spray. like Lysol.

6. Finish disinfecting your keys

After. Put the keys in a bowl, fill it with soap and water and leave them for a few seconds like this. Then carve the keys with a small brush. Finally, let them dry and do a final cleaning with a disinfecting cloth.

If you follow this guide, you will considerably reduce the possibility of getting coronavirus, since it will be very difficult for it to survive in such a clean environment as in your car.
