Ensuring your car is as clean as possible during the COVID-19 outbreak

If you need to venture outside and use your car it’s important to avoid the spread of germs, particularly if you share your car or if you’re assisting elderly/at risk groups and keeping your car clean is one way to do so.

We’ve compiled a list of places on your car exterior, interior and all the nooks and crannies in between where germs can hide, so grab some anti-bacterial wipes (bleach free) and wipe down all the surfaces in the checklist below to make sure your car is safe and germ free.

Inner door handles, grab handles and door release
Window/mirror buttons
Seatbelts, buckles and clips
Seat adjust buttons/levers
Door pockets, glove box, cup holders and central storage compartments
Steering wheel, horn and control stalks
Air vents
Dashboard, multimedia screen and buttons and heating controls
Power button/keyhole and key
Gearstick
Log book
Rear view mirror
Interior lights
Head rests
Seat pockets and rear central tab
Parcel shelf, boot floor tab and close button/handles

Exterior:

Under the bonnet:

Once your car is clean, inside and out be sure to wash your hands for at least 20 seconds. 

To help keep on top of car cleaning and prevent the spread of germs you could store a packet of anti-bac wipes in your car so you have them readily available, as well as hand sanitiser so its there for when you enter your clean car, for example after refuelling.

Check out the video below which will show you the ins and outs of where to clean your car.
