As the process of unlock has begun all over the country and most of us are resuming back our work, travel care is something that we all should pay the highest attention to. If you are someone who travels by car to his workplace then you might have already taken care of sanitizing your car but is that just enough? Here are 5 things that you should have in their car as a backup to their usual set of things.

Extra Masks

A few extra masks can slip right in the glove box of the vehicle. These can come handy if during rains the existing mask gets wet. Also if you forget a mask while leaving from home then having one in your car saves you the effort of going back home and getting one.

Surface Disinfectant

Well, a sanitizer might be in your back but you should keep a surface disinfectant in your car. If you carpool or have a sudden entry of co-passengers in your car, you need not completely sanitise your car afterwards.

Having a surface disinfectant might save you the extra task of getting the interior cleaned. Also, make it a habit to spray the surface disinfectant on the door handles and steering as that’s where you will be touching the most.

Car Cover

A car cover might help a lot if you park your car in an open space where there is a chance of people standing around and interacting around the car. It not only protects the car from the sun and dust but also keeps and expensive car out of sight.

If you are worried about who might be touching at what places of your car then a car cover will be the best solution to be safe. It definitely adds to another task after parking but it will be worth the effort.

Cabin Filter Check

No matter if you travel alone or have a company, having a clean cabin filter will keep the bacteria away from entering the car through the AC. Usually, the cabin filter has a chance of developing mould which might lead to the start of health problems dropping your immunity. It is better to get it checked every month if you use your car daily.

Air Purifier

Also if you have co-passenger in your car or you might be carpooling then investing in a portable air purifier might be a wise decision. This will keep the air fresh and make the traffic-ridden trips to the office much better.

These air purifiers plug into the 12V socket of the car and can be placed anywhere on the dashboard or the centre console.

Lastly, if you are taking out your car for the first time you should make sure that the car is in good condition and everything has been checked thoroughly.
