How to Sanitize Your Porsche

If you’ve been taking your Porsche on a much-needed getaway drive around Nashua, taking coronavirus preventative measures is more important than ever. Whether you’re coming home from grabbing some take-out or bringing home your favorite spirits from Stratham breweries, it’s a good idea to fully sanitize your vehicle. Learn how to take proper precautions against coronaviruses in your Porsche like the professionals with our service technicians’ simple guide.

Safely Sanitize Your Interior: The Basics

A new or pre-owned Porsche should be properly maintained to retain its high investment value–and to enjoy its luxury comfort for years to come. When you’re interested in sanitizing your vehicle for coronaviruses or other viruses and bacteria, there are a few tips to keep in mind:

  • Keep it simple: Soap and water are staples of any wash routine for a reason
  • Keep it natural: Mild, fragrance-free soap and warm water will clean delicate leather surfaces without diminishing their look, feel, or value
  • Avoid products containing bleach or hydrogen peroxide in all cases, and other harsh chemicals can do irrevocable damage to the refined interior of your Porsche

The Question of Hand Sanitizer

Many Portsmouth drivers like to keep a larger bottle of hand sanitizer in their vehicle along with the pocket-sized one they carry with them. Our specialists don’t recommend keeping a bottle in your car, as the alcohol in hand sanitizer is astringent and possibly damaging. Temperature fluctuations can make bottles warp, leak, even explode in extreme cases, and if left unattended on high-quality leather seating, the alcohol and other ingredients can cause cracking and worse. We do recommend including disinfectant wipes to rid your Porsche of coronaviruses and other unwanted guests on hard-touch surfaces like:

  • Door handles
  • Cupholders
  • Air vents
  • Window controls
  • Door locks

Coronavirus Preventative Measures: The In-Vehicle Touchscreen Display

Sanitizing a touchscreen is an essential part of coronavirus preventative measures, as drivers use the in-vehicle touchscreen on every drive around Manchester. Again, using alcohol or ammonia-based cleaning products is crucial. These products can stain and discolor the surface, which will render it less effective. Our team recommends wiping with a computer screen cleaning product or another designed for high-end electronics, or lukewarm water with a soft, clean cloth.

Safely Sanitizing Leather Surfaces of Coronaviruses and More

Porsche drivers understand the importance of keeping leather clean and free of debris. A little more care is necessary to actually sanitize a surface safely:

  1. Prepare a mixture of mild, fragrance-free soap and warm water.
  2. Surface dust and debris can scratch and create small fissures if not removed before cleaning and sanitizing. Use a soft-bristle vacuum cleaner attachment to remove them.
  3. Soak a soft, clean cloth in your cleaning solution, then wring it out.
  4. Gently wipe down the leather surfaces within your vehicle. Focus on high-touch areas like the steering wheel, armrests, and center console.
  5. Use a dry cloth to wipe down any areas to prevent lingering moisture.
