Hand Hygiene In The Car

Times are tough, and the world we currently live in has changed in an instant. The Covid-19 Pandemic has caused drastic and sudden changes in society whereby we must consider the risks of simple things we once took for granted such as eating out, grocery shopping, or meeting up with friends to catch a movie at the local Cinema. Now, more than ever before hand hygiene is paramount to maintaining health not only for yourself, but your loved ones & those around you.

Your car is a breeding ground for germs

Think about it, you drop the kids off to school. Pop into the shops or service station all the while unknowingly coming into contact with a range of hard surfaces that harbour germs. A few weeks ago, you wouldn’t have really thought much about potential germs on your steering wheel, handbrake, or door handle. But no more than ever, hand hygiene is at the forefront of our minds and one place in particular we need to focus on, is our vehicle.

Tips for keeping your vehicle hygienically clean

1)    Keep a bottle of hand sanitizer in the car. Each time you enter the car after being in a public place such as a grocery store, pharmacy or café, make a habit of sanitizing your hands straight away before touching other surfaces in the vehicle.

2)    Use alcohol based disinfectant wipes daily to wipe over the steering wheel, handbrake, seatbelts, door handles, indicators and controls.

3)    Don’t forget your keys! Wipe your keys with an alcohol-based disinfectant wipes to give your keys a thorough clean regularly.

4)    Spray the upholstery in your car with a hospital grade surface spray such as Glen20 which kills 99.9% of germs and viruses.
