Hopefully, you will know how to properly go about disinfecting the weather mats that see the most action by the end.


Protection is the first step you should take when thinking about disinfecting your car. You need protective gear. If you can, then get high-quality rubber gloves and a face mask. This is a must-have because there are dirt particles in the air as your dust surfaces. Before you put on your gloves, it’s always better to use an alcohol-based sanitizer on your hands before putting on the gloves. It’s an additional layer of protection that you cannot go wrong with. Another thing you should do is wear jeans and a full-sleeve top to limit the amount of direct contact to your skin whenever disinfecting the CRV’s floor mats. 

Regular Cleaning

It’s the same process. You can start the cleaning process the same way you would normally. Simply pull out the floor mats and dust them. Once that’s done, you should use a vacuum cleaner and work on getting all the dirt and grime out from all the corners, and while you’re at it, make sure you vacuum the seats too. You need to dispose of the vacuum dirt correctly. Put the dirt in a bin bag that you can throw into your main bin immediately. Please don’t leave it around for people to stumble into.


To start the process, you will need a large tub of water, add regular detergent or liquid soap, and mix well. Once you are done mixing it, you should soak your floor mats in the tub. If there’s any other removable fabric in your car, put them in to soak as well. Ensure you keep them in for at least 30 minutes before getting them out and leaving them in the sun to dry. 


For this part, you will need a separate soap mixture to scrub the fabrics that cannot be removed from your car. Make sure you soak the sponge, then give it a proper squeeze so that it isn’t going to soak your car and use it to scrub away at your seats, door panels, and armrests. You should also ensure that you get the corners as well. We also recommend you should get the roof lining a good rub down with the same solution.

It’s All In The Details

Now that the scrubbing is done, the next thing you should do is take a sponge and put some alcohol-based disinfectant and rub down all plastic parts, including the door panels, center console, dashboard, the pillar covers between doors and around your windscreen. Remember to clean up the boot of your car and the place that sees the most foreign items in the form of shopping and shopping bags and other things. Also, make sure you disinfect the steering wheel, gear stick, power window buttons, rearview mirror, fuel lid opener, and bonnet opener, as these are the most commonly touched parts.

The Exterior

Now that the interior details are done, you have to move to the exterior. Make sure to give it a soap wash will ensure all the exterior surfaces are clean. You should be generous with the soap mix and go over commonly touched parts like door handles, mirrors, and the boot. Let the soap sit for five minutes. After that, wash the car down, then use a dry cloth to get rid of the excess water. 

Cleaning Up

So you are done with disinfecting your car, and the next step is to dispose of the gloves, waste cloths, and other disposable material effectively. Make sure the clothes and car washcloths and sponges should go straight into the wash, and you should take a long shower. Leaving your clothes and washing materials can lead to other surfaces being contaminated so make sure to play safe and proactively get everything cleaned.
