How to clean the interior of your car
Don’t use bleach or hydrogen peroxide on the inside of your car. These products can certainly both kill coronaviruses on surfaces, they will possibly damage your car’s interior upholstery and plastic surfaces. Including the steering wheel. Do not use ammonia-based cleaners either on car touch screens for example, as they can damage the coatings. You can instead, vigorous wash with soap and water can also destroy a coronavirus.
Coronaviruses have a protective layer around them that helps them survive. Destroying that protective layer can disarm their cells. Soap and water are also safe for most car interiors—especially fabrics and older leather that may have begun to crack. Leather as well as the imitation kind have urethane coating, which is ok to clean with alcohol. But over time, too much cleaning of leather with alcohol can damage and discolor the surface. Use egular Ivory soap and water to clean spots and spills on our leather-trimmed interiors.
