We have become more conscious of the surfaces we come in contact with, in an effort to keep ourselves and others safe from the spread of COVID-19. Frequent hand washing as directed by the Public Health Agency of Canada is a crucial part of staying healthy, but so is disinfecting surfaces, including those in your car.
To help you make informed decisions on what the best practices are to keep your vehicle as clean as possible while reducing the spread of the novel coronavirus, Nissan has some tips on what cleaning products to use, what to not use, and where to use them in your vehicle.
What to use:
“Even with shelter at home orders and physical distancing guidelines in place, many people still rely on their vehicle to go to work or run errands,” says Andrew Harkness, director of aftersales, Nissan Canada. “Between the key, the door handle, steering wheel, trunk handle, just to name a few spots - you might be surprised at the number of places your car can harbour germs and bacteria.”

What not to use:
“Using the right product and the right material will not only help you clean properly your vehicle but also avoid damaging it,” says Harkness.
