3 Best Precautions When Traveling in your Car

They are truly our heroes who not only save lives, but make sure we get everything we need from the comfort of our home. With an increased number of cases, healthcare workers, grocery store clerks, delivery drivers, and others risk their lives on the frontlines everyday.

For those of us that aren’t required to work on the frontlines, we can still do our part to help slow the spread of COVID and to better protect ourselves, our loved ones, and our communities. Here are 3 simple tips that you can do to stay safe.

1. Disinfect belongings after going outdoors. Thoroughly wash hands with soap and water for, you guessed it, at least 20 seconds. But this isn’t the only precaution to take to further the risk of infection. Did you use any of the following?

  • Credit card?
  • Carry your phone? 
  • Keys?
  • Handbag? 

The CDC recommends disinfecting any items that you constantly handle as well as “high-touch” areas in both your home and in your car. If possible, take the extra step to clean items before disinfecting. 

2Don’t forget to take care of yourself, too. We can get so caught up in COVID cleaning craziness to keep our families safe that we forget to take care of the most important thing--you! Staying healthy is just as important as properly disinfecting. Take a breather and take some time for much-needed self care by staying active, incorporating more fresh and whole foods into your diet, and doing activities that perk up your mood. Whether it’s gardening, reading, or simply going for a scenic drive with your favorite music in the background, de-stressing will do so much for your mental and physical health.

3. Don’t skimp on car care. Whether you still drive everyday to work or strictly for essential outings, we tend to forget that your car needs to be sanitized too, especially after visiting the gas station or hauling goods from the grocery store. Don’t forget the germs your shoes trekk in. Not sure where to start? Here are some deep cleaning car tips to help get you started. For added commuting convenience, keep a handy kit, such as our Disinfectant Bundle (reusable mask included!) in your car for easy access to disinfecting after every errand. Fullscale is a great way to stay stocked up by joining as a member.
