Tips for Sanitizing Your Car near Costa Mesa, CA

Call Tustin Hyundai!

If it’s been a while since you gave your car a good cleaning, it might be time! Sanitizing your car is often a good practice to keep your ride fresh for your weekend cruises, as well as germ-free for the benefit of you and your loved ones. We at Tustin Hyundai have some tips and tricks that can help you through this process!

Interior

First, we’ll go over how to clean up your interior. The first step would be to take out any extraneous items or trash from your cabin so you have an empty slate to start with. Then, it’s important to sanitize all the major touchpoints of your vehicle. These include your steering wheel, shift knob, audio controls, and other surfaces. These can all be made bacteria-free with a simple soap and water mixture on a microfiber towel. If you would prefer to use disinfectant wipes, those are also effective. We suggest avoiding alcohol-based solutions, as they can be abrasive and strip down interior surfaces. Third, you’ll want to wipe down your mirrors and windows to have maximum visibility while you drive. This can be done with the same type of microfiber towels and a glass cleaner.

Seating

How to sanitize your seating is based on what kind you have. If you have cloth chairs, then it is best to use a vacuum to clean up any particles. Stains can be taken care of with upholstery cleaner. However, if you just want to use products you have at home, there are also a number of home remedies ranging from dish soap to vinegar to club soda and more that you can try. On the other hand, if you have leather seating, then it has to be treated with much more care. It is best to use leather-specific conditioner on this seat trim in order to sanitize it and protect it in the future. Other gentle oils, or even makeup removing solution can eliminate any stains and smells from it effectively as well.

Exterior

Finally, you’ll want to wrap up your cleaning session by tending to the exterior of your vehicle. You can take it into a car wash if you want, but you can also polish it at home with just a few simple materials. Once you gather up a bucket full of water, soap, and sponges, you can scrub down your car from top to bottom. Make sure to get into all the crevices, and rinse it down after with a hose. After you dry off with microfiber towels, you can seal in your hard work with a wax, which can protect your paint job from harmful UV rays.

So if you’re hoping to clean out your vehicle with the turn of the season, use these tips for sanitizing your car near Costa Mesa, CA! If you come up with any questions for our team at Tustin Hyundai, give us a call or contact us online.

I hate shopping for cars with a passion but Greg made the process very simple and easy. I got the information I needed online so when I got to the dealership everything was pretty much done minus the test drive and buying the car.

Greg Thrasher is the best!

We just had the best experience ever buying a new car through Greg Thrasher @ Tustin Hyundai. He did not drag us through any sort of unwanted negotiating. After purchase he went over our new car extremely thoroughly and did not rush us through anything. I will highly recommend Greg to anyone looking for a car. Call him first as you will not be sorry!

Update: Added a star because Trina, the customer relations manager, reached out to me immediately to discuss the experience I had last week. She was apologetic, sincere, and understands the importance of great customer service. I had a decent experience at Tustin Hyundai. In the beginning, I do not think the sales representatives took me seriously (I do look a bit young for my actual age) about buying a car. I initially left because of it. When I returned solely because of the cars available, I honestly felt that I wasn't treated with respect until my credit check was completed. All I can say about that is for future sale opportunities, never judge a book by its cover. Also, during any business transaction, I expect the sales representative to be honest to the best of their ability. Unfortunately, it seemed like the team I dealt with was more concerned with making a sale as opposed to giving me honest quotes about how much my trade in car was worth. I understand trying to make a profit from a sale but what I was initially offered was beyond unreasonable, especially compared to other competitors. I'm trying to be as honest as possible with this review and while my experience in total wasn't exactly pleasant, I do really enjoy the car that I purchased.

My very first time buying a car! I was a bit nervous going into it on my own. But Ivan texted me the day before with any questions or concerns I had. When I arrived the next day, Ivan helped me feel comfortable test driving it and purchasing it. He was very straightforward, no hidden fees, no nickel and diming, very transparent, and really wanted me to drive out of the lot with a new set of wheels. Would gladly do it again, especially at Tustin Hyundai. Thank you to Ivan and to the entire team. Aaron

I always get excellent and efficient service at Tustin Hyundai. One strange thing happened this last time. My windshield wipers needed replacing. I didn't notice until the next day that the driver-side one was new and the passenger-side wiper was still the old, worn-out one! It was not a time when I could turn around and go back to get it fixed. But it struck me as odd since they always do such a good job.
