Thoroughly clean and disinfect the car:
1. What surfaces do you have to clean?
The interior of the vehicle is very important and you have to pay more attention. There are certain objects that you have to disinfect yes or yes since they are the ones that you touch with your hands constantly or are more exposed:
- Steering wheel
- Gear shift
- Door handles
- Buttons, lights and turn signals
- Seat belt
- Touch screens
The dashboard, the windows, the moon and the other screens are also important even if they are not in direct contact, don't forget them!
2. Vacuum the car and remove dirt residues
Before disinfecting the car, you have to turn off the engine: the car must not be running.
- Shake and vacuum the mats and seats to remove any dirt that may have adhered as you usually do.
- Pay attention to ventilation slots and to the most complex parts: buttons, protrusions... You can clean them with a swab to remove the dust
Once you have vacuumed and removed dust, we go to the next step!
3. Apply the disinfectant, leave it to act and rinse it out
- Dilute a Virucida Cleanpill tablet in 1.5 L of water in a sprayer (if your sprayer is of less capacity it does not you need to break the pill, there is no problem).
- Spray the disinfectant * on the steering wheel, gear lever, ventilation slits and all the surfaces that we discussed in the previous point.
- Upholstery and mats: yes the seats are leather, rub them with a cloth dampened in the disinfectant mixture. If the seats are made of standard material, do not add excess product because it could discolor them.
- Metal parts: you can apply the disinfectant on metal surfaces, yes, but you will have to make sure to rinse it well so that it does not corrode.
- Wait 5 minutes for the disinfectant to take effect. Let the solution work for 5 minutes and you wait outside the vehicle. This gives the disinfectant time to eliminate viruses and bacteria.
- Use a clean, lint-free cloth, a cloth or a microfiber cloth, moisten it with water and rub all surfaces. It is important to do this step carefully and thoroughly rinse the surfaces you have sprayed, especially metal ones.
When you have cleaned, rinsed, and scrubbed all surfaces, leave 60 minutes before using the car again. Let it ventilate as much as possible!
And for the exterior of the car?
The exterior parts of the vehicle do not generally need a specific disinfection. However, we do recommend disinfecting the door handles, especially the driver's, as well as the trunk.
