This solution can be used to scrub down any surface in your vehicle. Just be sure you’re scrubbing gently, as you can easily damage the interior by scrubbing too hard. It helps if you’re using a microfiber cloth to prevent scratches. While bleach and hydrogen peroxide are effective at disinfecting surfaces, they can damage your car’s upholstery and the trim inside.
