Because we use our cars so often, the odds of being exposed to viruses in your vehicle is potentially high.

Protecting your vehicle from viruses is not as hard as it might seem. There are several steps you can do to safeguard your ride. Disinfecting and protecting your vehicle is an intensive process, but at this point in time, you must do it.

25: Wash Your Hands Often

You’re going to have to drive at some point in time and that means you’re going to track germs in and out of your vehicle. You want to make sure that you are preventing viruses from entering your vehicle. Touching things such as door handles and items in a grocery store are just some of the ways you can contract this. You should wash your hands after you leave any public place – clean hands are a must.

Hand washing should be done for two minutes. If you wash your hands often you’ll bring less airborne germs into your vehicle. Washing your hands often might make the skin dry, so it helps to keep some type of lotion inside of your car as well. If you take the time to perform proper handwashing, fewer germs will be in your vehicle.
