My husband and I swap cars and now that our teen is learning to drive, our cars’ steering wheels are an even bigger potential area for germ exchange. Clean the steering wheel and controls with a disinfecting wipe. You’ll be surprised how dirty your steering wheel gets, especially after filling the tank with gasoline or checking the tire pressure! And while you’re at it, wipe down the interior door handles and the stereo knobs, too!
