Eradicate the Germs: Car Cleaning Tips

Date posted: October 31, 2013

How often do you clean the interior of your car? Once a month, when you take your car to the car wash? Once a week on Sunday, so it’s nice and clean for your commute the next morning? Or simply as needed–like when your son spills his milkshake on the back seat or when your dog shakes sand all over the passenger seat after you’ve taken a long walk on the beach? And how do you clean it –a quick vacuum over the floors and seats, and maybe a careful swipe with a disinfectant wipe over the dashboard and door handles?

Unfortunately, according to experts, even if your car looks nice and clean and, since you’ve popped an air freshener in there as well, smells like a pine forest, a light cleaning might not be enough. Take a look at these statistics as they may make you want to scrub your car’s interior more thoroughly and more often:
