How to clean car interior: Cleaning pro uses antibacterial wipes to clean inside her car
These are the three ‘gross’ germ-riddled areas in your car that you need to clean now – and most forget about them
- Cleaning expert revealed the spaces in the car you should clean
- Anita Birges shared a video and cleaned her steering wheel, gear stick and doors
A cleaning expert has listed the top three areas of your car you should clean more regularly as they’re often ridden with grime and nasty bacteria.
Anita Birges, from Sydney, cleaned the key interior spots of her car – including the steering wheel, gear stick and door handles – using antibacterial wipes.
While the areas didn’t look dirty, the three wipes were left with brown marks on each one, and the steering wheel was the filthiest.
‘I’m always shocked at the amount of dirt and grime that comes off. It’s pretty gross,’ she said.
Anita said the quick chore only took five minutes to complete all three areas. The task should be completed at least once a week.

She cleaned some of the interior spots of her car – including the steering wheel, gear stick and door handles – using antibacterial wipes. While the areas didn’t look dirty, the three wipes had brown marks on each one
In the clip, the wipe used to clean the gear stick looked just as filthy while the door handles and window buttons had less filth.
The short video has since been viewed more than 24,000 times but some disagreed with the method for one reason.
‘I wouldn’t use antibacterial wipes on the interior,’ one person wrote.
A second claimed: ‘The anti-bacterial wipes aren’t good for cars, cause it makes the surface go off eventually, so I would choose another product but nothing alcohol based, cause that is the issue in making the interior plastic that seals everything go off.’
But according to the car detailers at Tempe Honda, disinfectant wipes are suitable to use and won’t cause any damage.
‘When considering how to sanitise your car, one of the most effective methods is to use household disinfectant wipes that will both kill germs and clean your surfaces. You can use them on most hard surfaces but focus on the areas you touch the most often,’ the business wrote on the website.

Others were disgusted and thanked Anita for sharing the cleaning ‘hack’.
‘Omg!!! Yuck, I’m to go and clean mine now,’ one person wrote.
‘I do clean like that plus I wipe with a damp microfiber cloth and then a dry one to remove any product,’ another wrote.
‘I used to have a mini van. When I had a car load of kids. I would give each one a wipe or two and tell them to clean their areas. It wasn’t perfect but it wasn’t bad. Plus it made my car smell really good,’ a third added.
