How to Sanitize Your Car of Coronavirus

Cleaning door handle

When you need to head out to San Diego for groceries or to put gas in your car, it’s important to sanitize your vehicle when you return home as part of Coronavirus preventative measures. Disinfecting your vehicle regularly is just one of the many ways to help stop the spread of infectious diseases like Coronaviruses. Mercedes-Benz of Escondido cares about the health and safety of our community; in this guide, you can pick up tips for how to sanitize your Mercedes-Benz of Coronavirus. 


Keeping Yourself and Your Passengers Safe 

Stopping the spread of Coronaviruses and other infectious diseases when you travel from Escondido to Escondido starts with your personal health practices. Here are a few things you can do to keep yourself and others healthy:

  • Carry a travel-size hand sanitizer in your pocket or in your bag so you can quickly clean your hands before grabbing your car keys or opening your car doors. 
  • When you return home, wash your hands thoroughly as soon as you get inside.

Tip: San Marcos drivers may be keeping a large pump bottle of hand sanitizer in their vehicle these days, but beware, as the extreme Southern California heat can cause the bottle to explode in your car!


What are Some Safe Car Sanitizing Materials?

When it comes to sanitizing your vehicle for Coronavirus preventative measures, you will want to be sure you have cleaning solutions that will eliminate germs and viruses but won’t harm your car’s interior materials. The best solution is to clean your cabin and exterior with disinfectant wipes, focusing on high-touch surfaces like door handles and control buttons. 

Mild, fragrance-free soap that has been diluted with lukewarm water can also be used to wipe down your vehicle with a microfiber cloth – just be sure to use a light touch to avoid damaging the vinyl, plastic, or leather materials in your vehicle. 

Are there any products you should avoid using inside your car? Anything containing hydrogen peroxide or bleach should not be used on your upholstery, as it can cause discoloration and dry out the cloth or leather. Additionally, steer clear of ammonia, which is common in glass cleaners. 


Deep Cleaning Your Vehicle

Once you’re equipped with all the right cleaning materials, pay attention to the areas that are most likely to pick up bacteria and germs. Wiping down your seats is a great place to start, but don’t forget about these other high-touch areas:

  • Steering wheel 
  • Control buttons for navigation, air conditioning, etc. 
  • Paddle shift levers
  • Gear selector lever 
  • Turn indicator stalks
  • Console armrests
  • Display screens
  • Cupholders
  • Cubbyholes
  • Air conditioner vents
  • Door handles
