Dust and other particles can form on your steering wheel over time. Sweat and oil from your hands also transfer onto the steering wheel. Wiping the steering wheel with a dry towel or cloth may remove some visible items from the steering wheel, but it will not thoroughly clean the steering wheel. You can mix a common household item with water and use it to remove particles and bacteria from your steering wheel.
Things You'll Need
- White vinegar
- Warm water
- 2 lint-free cloths
Pour one cup of warm water and 3 tbsp. of white distilled vinegar into a bowl.
Mix the two liquids together using a spoon or similar item.
Dip a lint-free cloth into the water and vinegar. Make sure the cloth is saturated but not soaking wet.
Wipe both sides of the steering wheel with the moistened cloth. Dip the cloth in the liquid, and wipe over portions of the steering wheel again if the wheel still has dirt or other particles on the wheel.
Dry the steering wheel using a different clean lint-free cloth.
Examine the steering wheel, and repeat the process if necessary.
