This pandemic seems to be on everyone’s mind of late and it’s time to learn to practice good hygiene not only on ourselves but on the things that we are in contact with often like our car. Here are a few habits that all drivers should adopt, as well as, today’s top tips for lowering the risk of contamination.
What You Need To Know
With everyone practicing good hygiene by washing and sanitising their hands, what about the objects and spaces that we touch throughout the day? Going for a drive is something that can break the humdrum self-isolation routine that some of you may be in at the moment. Keeping your car safe is easy, it’s just about adopting new habits when you enter and leave your vehicle. What you need to know about COVID 19 and Car leasing in the Gold Coast.
Keeping your car a safe space is easy, just remember to clean before and after use. Areas that you should be focusing on include:
- High contact surface areas like the steering wheel, car doors, etc.
- Low contact surface areas; don’t skip any corners, your inner windshield is a good spot to go over, for instance.
- Storage and passenger areas – you were driving, who knows what was touched on the ride over so better be safe than sorry.
What You’re Going To Need
- Clean cloths
- Antibacterial wipes
- Disposable gloves
Driving Habits To Adopt
Cleaning your car before and after your trips is only the beginning, it’s time to be conscious and minimise the chances of contamination. The ways that you can do this include wiping everything down on a regular basis, cleaning objects that make it in and out of the space, keep your driving to a minimum and make sure that your passengers practice caution and sanitise as well.
Today’s Top Tips
