Hand sanitizer has become an integral part of our daily lives to prevent the global epidemic (Corona “Covid-19”), whether at home, at work, or even in the car. Auto experts highlighted the shocking effect of hand sanitizer on the cabin parts and its great ability to negatively interact with its leather and plastic parts, causing it to crumble and reduce its lifespan.
Experts attributed the disastrous effect to the components of hand sanitizers, which contain a high percentage of alcohol exceeding 70%; This results in cracking, discoloration and visible wear of the cabin body over time.
Experts advised to avoid the damage of hand sanitizers, to wait for a sufficient period of time to allow the sanitizer to dry before touching the cabin parts of the steering wheel and internal components.
