What Do I Need to Disinfect my Car?

Spring is a time for cleaning but staying clean might be on top of everyone’s mind even more so these days. It is a good time to take stock of what you need and what you can live without. After your house is clean, then it is time to head out and think about cleaning out your car. 

You may still need to travel to work or check in on family members, but keeping any viruses out is a good idea. It may seem like you will need some industrial-grade cleaners to really get everything taken care of. It actually isn’t as hard as you might think, we’ll walk you through some of the different steps you can go through. 

How to Deep Clean Your Car at Home 

While some people might overspend for something specialized to clean cars, but it isn’t necessary. Those car cleaners are certainly good, but you likely have what you need in your home already. Simple rubbing alcohol can go a long way towards disinfecting your car, just be careful if you own leather seats.
