2. Clean deeply the most common contact surfaces like door handles, steering wheel and gear lever.
3. Check your seat belts and clean specially the metal surfaces that can keep viruses longer than plastic.
4. Clean the air filter from your air conditioning system
5. Control the pressure of your tires. You are probably using the car less than before, so be careful because it could be dangerous.
