Mitsubishi Motors Ireland Guide to Cleaning your Vehicle

Regular hand washing is a vital part of staying healthy as well as disinfecting surfaces including those inside your vehicle. It is advised that you wear disposable gloves for cleaning and disinfecting surfaces. If a surface appears dirty, it should be wiped down with soap and water prior to disinfection. For the interior of your vehicle, a microfiber or soft cloth dampened with soap and water can be used to wipe down hard surfaces.

It is important to be aware that while most common household disinfectants are effective, some are unsuitable for use on a vehicle such as bleach, hydrogen peroxide, benzene, thinners or other abrasive and harsh cleaners. These types of products include chemicals that can cause damage to your vehicle’s upholstery and surfaces.

Sprays which contain at least 70% alcohol and alcohol-based wipes should be used in your vehicle instead and will not cause damage. Your Smartphone Link Display Audio system should be cleaned carefully with screen wipes or a soft cloth dampened with soap and water and then wiped dry with a clean, soft cloth. Ammonia-based cleaners should not be used on the Smartphone Link Display Audio System as this can cause damage to the anti-glare and anti-fingerprint coatings.
