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 & Deodorize Surfaces
Now, on to the fun part: eliminating potentially dangerous germs and odor-producing organisms. Start by using disinfecting wipes to clean any non-carpeted car surfaces like the dashboard, cup holders, and interior handles. Then, pull out your deodorizing mist.
The SafeSpace® Auto Disinfecting & Deodorizing Mist generates an ultra-fine, contact disinfectant mist that eliminates odor-producing organisms and leaves 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 deodorize interior spaces because they eliminate odor-producing organisms that you might miss during a simple once-over. They can tackle 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. 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 odor-producing organisms whenever you use your heater or air conditioning system.
To tackle this issue, treat your car’s vents with a misting agent like SafeSpace® Auto Disinfecting & Deodorizing Mist. 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 odor-producing organisms where they thrive.
