Is your car spreading germs?

We take pride in our cars, what if I told you you’re harboring germs in that seat next to you?

Germs Car Seat

Don’t let that squeaky-clean look of the car’s exterior deceive you. Hitching on for a ride in the interior can be all sorts of germs, bacteria, mold, viruses and dust mites. We bring a lot along for the ride by placing briefcases, purses, backpacks, and shopping bags on some pretty germy places such as public bathroom floors, shopping carts, and other less-than-desirable resting spots that go from there to the front seat of the car bringing along germs.

Jill Holdsworth is an infection preventionist and is president of the DC Metro Chapter of the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology. She says the car can be a very big place to pass bacteria back and forth if you are not careful.

“The No. 1 hot spots would be anywhere that you touch with your hands,” Holdsworth said. These areas include the steering wheel, radio, gear shift, cup holders and interior car seats.

Did you know…Dishwashing detergent is a no-no?

Dish soap is for dishesDishwashing detergent is meant to remove everything from the surface…

That’s great for dishes, but not so great for your car. Stripping everything includes stripping the polymers off the paint surface…the effect is similar to what dishwashing soap does to your hands. Too much will dry the skin.

On the surface of a car, the same thing occurs; dishwashing soap actually accelerates the oxidation process when used regularly. At Car Pool Car Washes we pride ourselves on Guarding the Life of your Car! Check out our washes, there’s surely one that fits your budget!
