How to clean your car
Some cleaning products are not suitable to use in your vehicle. For example, bleach will kill the germs, but it will also eat away the materials in your vehicle. Hydrogen peroxide will also destroy the vinyl and plastic in your car leaving you with a clean but damaged car. These chemicals are also nasty for you to breathe in for an extended period, this can be bad when trying to clean your car a few times a day.
The best things you can use are alcohol wipes and let them sit and kill the germs for a few moments. Alcohol will kill all the bacteria, clean the inside of your car without harming it. When you go out and come home, you should try to clean your car and wash your hands to help prevent the spread of the virus.
