Health and Hygiene in Cars - Through
COVID-19 and Beyond

By Grange Europe | 09 February 2021

A typical car can be a breeding ground for germs and viruses like COVID-19. In fact, an article published in 2018 posited that Your Car interior could be dirtier than a bin‚Ķ Now with the ongoing threat of viruses like Covid-19, it‚Äôs more important than ever to keep your car safe hygienically clean ‚Äď even if you‚Äôre just popping to the shops with someone, or going for a day out.

According to The Hygiene Company, sanitizer alone isn’t enough to keep your car safe. Instead, you should be using hand and surface antibacterial wipes made specifically for your hands or your car to kill and REMOVE all germs that could be lying dormant in this germ-breeding space.

New Threats, New Measures

Even though we‚Äôre in lockdown right now, people are still on the roads making essential trips. The germs don‚Äôt go into furlough when you do ‚Äď they‚Äôre still out there. So, you‚Äôve got to up your game if you‚Äôre going to stay safe. Masks and gloves are common practice now, but what about hand and surface wipes

‚ÄúDespite the increased level of cleanliness at car washes nowadays, the need for day-to-day sanitation is as prominent as ever. The coronavirus pandemic was useful in that sense because it woke people up to a better understanding of the measures, they need to take every day. A new level of car hygiene is necessary to protect yourself and your passengers,‚ÄĚ says The Hygiene Company‚Äôs Jonathan Bradford.
