Disinfect Your Car

During this time of extreme sanitizing don’t forget your car.


  • Cleaning the steering wheel is a must.  Use disinfecting wipes.
  • Touchscreen displays require extra care, disinfect displays using a microfiber cloth sprayed with eyeglass cleaner.
  • Vacuum seats and floorboards thoroughly and often.
  • Wipe consoles and dashboards with hot soapy water, rinse and let air dry.
  • Clean door handles with disinfecting spray or wipes.
