SONAX Car A/C Cleaner: Breathe healthy air while driving

Recent events have made us all aware of the need to make sure the air we breathe is clean and healthy, what with the ash fall from the Taal Volcano eruption and the threat of the Novel Coronavirus now detected in the Philippines. N95 masks are much in demand, and some people have taken to having one ready, just in case.

Many of us spend a significant portion of our day commuting through Metro Manila traffic. I spend at least 3-4 hours traveling to work each day inside my car, breathing air that’s recirculated from the air-conditioning system.

Some mornings, when I first turn on the A/C, I get hit by a musty odor and some other strange smells. Apparently, the car A/C system is a perfect breeding ground for mold, mildew, fungi, bacteria, and other micro-organisms that thrive in damp, dark places such as the evaporator behind the car’s dash panel. These not only produce the bad odors in your car but can also trigger allergic reactions.

But how do you clean the car A/C without dismantling the dash assembly? German car care brand SONAX has a product that quickly and easily disinfects car ventilation systems and evaporators—the SONAX Car A/C Cleaner. It comes in a 100 ml canister that’s quick and easy to use.

When you step into the car after the A/C treatment, you’ll be getting into a fresh-smelling vehicle and the assurance that 99.9% of bacteria, molds, and germs have been eliminated. Now, you can be sure that you’re breathing clean, healthy air during your daily commute.

And, yes, the SONAX A/C Cleaner can also be used in other air conditioned spaces such as rooms in your home or office. One 100 ml canister is good for 14 sqm of space—use more canisters for larger rooms. Similar to how it is used in a car, the can has to be positioned near the air conditioning unit with the fan turned up to high and the temperature switch to the coolest setting. After activating the canister, leave the room with the door closed for 15 minutes, and come back to a freshly sanitized space.
