How to Safely Clean and Disinfect the Interior of Your Mazda

As the virus continues to affect the world, we continue to practice CDC recommended actions. When we go out to work or shop for essential items, we avoid touching our face, cough into our sleeve and stay six feet away from other people. Between every store, and when we get home, we make sure to wash our hands with soap and warm water for 20 seconds. Although we protect our hands and faces, there’s another area we might be forgetting. The interior of your vehicle can become a hotspot for the virus. Today, we are going to teach you how to safely clean and disinfect the interior of your Mazda.

Protect your Mazda vehicle from the virus

You might be wondering how cleaning your interior for the virus is different than normal cleaning. While the motions you do are still the same, it’s important to use the proper cleaning materials. You need to use a product that is strong enough to kill the virus but won’t destroy any materials. Different sections of the interior require different cleaning products.

The best cleaning product to use on hard surfaces is alcohol. If you have any disinfecting wipes, those are also a good and safe choice. Although every surface is important to clean, it’s important to spend more time on high-touch areas. This includes the steering wheel, controls on the steering wheel, controls on the entertainment system, the gear shift stick, turn indicator, armrest, door handles, cup holders, A/C vents, and storage holes. The best cleaning product to use on seating surfaces is soap and water. Remember to not use too much so that there isn’t a chance for mold or mildew to form.
