Regularly disinfecting vehicles, especially shared vehicles, can help minimize the spread of COVID-19. Certain disinfectants containing too much Ethanol (Ethyl Alcohol) can discolor or otherwise damage vehicle surfaces. Acura recommends cleaning vehicle surfaces with a mild dish soap and water, then use a disinfectant that contains between 60% - 70% Ethanol. Use of products containing more than 70% Ethanol risks damage to surfaces. These methods are effective for cleaning and disinfecting according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Always apply disinfectants using a soft cloth. Never spray disinfectants directly on vehicle surfaces. Other disinfectants, such as Isopropyl alcohol, ammonia and bleach, can also damage surfaces and are not recommended.
