If there was ever a time to pay extra attention to keeping everything as clean as possible, it’s now. So, how to thoroughly clean your car using household disinfectants during this coronavirus crisis? Let’s have a look.
For your own protection:
Additionally, a vacuum and a bottle of household disinfectant to clean your car would come in handy.
A lot of cleaning products are in high demand right now, some are even completely sold out. However, not every disinfectant is made the same. Luckily, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a registered list of 300 products that can kill the coronavirus at the beginning of March. We recommend you to choose a bleach-free product for cleaning your car, otherwise, you might damage the interior.
The effectiveness of your household disinfectant doesn’t just depend on the percentages visible on the bottle or the ingredient list on the back – it’s also affected by the time it is left to work on the surface. Jason Tetro, a microbiologist and the author of The Germ Code advises leaving the product on a hard surface for at least one minute but preferably three minutes.

Below you’ll find some tips and suggestions for cleaning your car.
If you have a steam cleaner and are wondering about its effectiveness for cleaning your car, then we suggest you partner it up with the household disinfectant or some soap. Coronaviruses are enveloped viruses, meaning they have a protective membrane of fat. That fat is sensitive to detergent, which is why the soap is a good partner to the steam.
Every little helps and besides sharing these tips for cleaning your car, we suggest you take care of your hygiene and well-being by washing your hands and staying at home as much as possible. You can find the latest COVID-19 pandemic updates from the World Health Organization’s website.
