Car Sanitation Tips

Stock Up on Disinfectant

While you may have stocked up on bleach products, paper towels, and hand sanitizer to keep you and your family safe in this season, these products will only cause damage to the soft surfaces of your car — especially organic surfaces such as leather. 


The secret solution which car manufacturers and car assembly plants have relied on for years to disinfect their cars is isopropyl alcohol. A solution of at least 70% will remove any potential contaminants that you may be concerned with. Also, rather than using abrasive paper towels, gently wipe away the alcohol with a soft, clean terry cloth instead. Pay special attention to seats, door handles, the steering wheel, and infotainment systems. 

Clean or Replace the Air Filters

Clean air circulating through your cabin will help to keep you and your passengers healthy. If the air filters in your Jaguar become clogged or caked with dirt, they will not be able to filter away particles such as dust and pollen that could affect the air quality within the car. 


If you are unsure of how to find or replace the air filters, you can refer to your owners manual or drop by our Jaguar Service Center where one of our technicians can take care of this for you. 

Vacuum Any Dust or Particles

Dirt, food crumbs, and other particles can build up on the floor of your car over time. As these particles break down, they can become airborne and cycled into the air with movement. Take a few minutes to thoroughly vacuum out your car to ensure that you and your passengers aren’t inhaling particles from the floor. Be sure to wear a dust mask or a face covering as you clean. This step will drastically improve the breathing quality of the air in your car while also giving your car a clean, fresh scent.
