We’ve all been there – You hop in the car, ready to go, and you smell it: a musty, unpleasant odor that’s taken over your vehicle. Over time, our cars can become hotbeds of bacteria, playing host to harmful germs on surfaces like steering wheels and interior handles. Keeping your car clean can be a battle in itself, but figuring out how to disinfect and deodorize your car may seem especially intimidating. Fortunately, with easy-to-use products from SafeSpace, disinfecting and deodorizing your car is a snap.
How to Disinfect and Deodorize Your Car
Step One: Tackle Car Clutter
Not sure how to disinfect and deodorize your car? Start small: Grab a trash bag and toss out any obvious sources of odor like food wrappers, napkins, musty magazines, and other trash. Once you’ve cleared out the clutter, you’ll be able to uncover any sneaky sources of odor. Search your car’s nooks and crannies – under seats, inside cup holders, and inside the trunk – for spills or food scraps that may be causing odor. Then, vacuum any soft surfaces in the car including floors and seats. This will eliminate bits of dirt or debris that might be causing a foul smell inside your car.
Step Two: Disinfect Surfaces
Now, on to the fun part: eliminating potentially dangerous germs. Start by using disinfecting wipes to clean any non-carpeted car surfaces like the dashboard, cup holders, and interior handles. Of course, it’s impossible to reach every single germ on your vehicle’s hard surfaces. For that reason, it’s best to employ a misting agent to destroy hard-to-reach bacteria.
The SafeSpace® Auto Odor & Germ Eliminator generates an ultra-fine, contact disinfectant mist, killing germs and leaving your car’s interior smelling fresh and clean. The ultra-fine mist won’t leave behind spots, stains, or residue like some cleaning agents. Ultimately, mists like this one are a more effective way to disinfect interior spaces because they kill germs that you might miss during a simple once-over. The Auto Odor & Germ Eliminator can disinfect all the hard-to-reach spots in your car, like the nooks and crannies around the seats and center console that you can’t reach with disinfecting wipes. Plus, you’ll get quite a bit of bang for your buck: One can of our auto mist can treat more than 30 average-sized car interiors.
Step Three: Spray Vents
Over time, every car’s vents develop a layer of dirt and debris, and that debris can contribute to a foul smell in the vehicle. Plus, germs love to hide in small, hard-to-reach spaces like car vents. The dark, warm, and moist environment within the plenums of the ventilation system is a prime breeding ground for germs and bacteria. Since ultraviolet light is unable to reach inside the ventilation system, it’s very important to clean this area yourself with high-quality cleaning products. If you don’t, you and your car’s passengers will likely breathe in germs whenever you use your heater or air conditioning system.
To tackle these issues, treat your car’s vents with a misting agent like SafeSpace® Auto Odor & Germ Eliminator. Simply shake the can well, press the valve, and direct a two-second burst of the mist directly into the vents so that it can drift inside the plenums and attack germs where they thrive.
