How to Safely Sanitize a Car Interior Without Damaging It

The phrase “spring cleaning” didn’t spring up by accident. For many reasons, practical and traditional, it’s when we are reminded to sanitize both our homes – and our vehicles. Perhaps now more than ever, due to the recent outbreak of the novel coronavirus, it’s important to sanitize vehicles which are touched by our germ-carrying hands.

But how to clean the interior of your car without hurting it? We have the answer right here!

It All Starts with the Vacuum Cleaner

How to Safely Sanitize a Car Interior Without Damaging It

No matter if you recently cleaned your car or it’s been weeks, even months, you still need to take out the vacuum and start from there. Make sure to clean any debris from the interior, and then move on to the next step.

Use Car Care Products for the Interior

It’s time to remove dust and other particles inaccessible to the vacuum. Since the interior of your car represents a collection of different hard surfaces and fabrics, you need to be careful in the cleaning supplies you’ll use to avoid damaging the materials. If you have any car care products recommended for your type of vehicle, feel free to use them, but abstain from using hand sanitizer and bleach wipes!

Sanitizing the Touchable Parts

By now, your vehicle surely looks much cleaner and way more welcoming than it did when you started this exercise. However, to ensure there are no viruses and bacteria just waiting for you to get inside the car, the smart thing to do would be to proceed with sanitizing the interior. Most viruses die when they are in contact with soapy water, so grab a microfiber towel (or a washcloth if you don’t have anything else) and prepare a bucket of soapy water. Squeeze out all of the water before you start rubbing the towel into the touchpoints of your car. These include door handles, steering wheel, cupholders, glove compartment, seatbelts, electronic screens, and other things you normally touch while in your car. Make sure not to leave pools of water, or you might damage the surfaces!

Kurt Busch Is Set to Start Fresh at 23XI Racing With New-Gen Car

After a long successful NASCAR Cup Series, the 33-time winner Kurt Busch is about to start fresh again next February. After shifting to Chip Ganassi Racing from Stewart-Haas Racing in 2019, the sports-star has moved to 23XI Racing this time.

Entering the New Era of His Career

The 23XI Racing team has posted a few Twitter photos of Busch checking out one of the next-Gen cars at its Mooresville headquarters in North Carolina. The real work of collaboration won’t begin until the final standards of the next-Gen car get determined by NASCAR through more on-track tests. But it’s quite clear that Busch couldn’t resist poking around to check the base of his upcoming career. Busch is already known in the NASCAR world for his frequent team change. But after his quick score the last season at the legendary team of Chip Ganassi Racing, it was difficult to predict any more career-changing moves from him. But it was the recent decision of CGR to sell the team to Trackhouse Racing, which has driven Kurt Busch to sign on with 23XI Racing for the upcoming 2022 season.

The Expectations From Him at CGR

Busch’s joining in the CGR has already come with a mild new twist, as this is the first time he will be behind the wheels of Toyotas, leaving behind his comfort zone of Fords, Dodges, and Chevys. Fortunately, the Toyotas already have a pretty impressive track record with CGR’s Bubba Wallace scoring his first career victory last season. The manufacturer also has a sound history with the Joe Gibbs Racing group. At CGR, Busch’s No. 45 Toyota has maybe a better chance than others, with someone able to make the first technical breakthrough in the NASCAR Cup Series by mastering in added speed or handling. Busch’s remarkably consistent winning performances over the last eight seasons are quite promising in this sector.
