During cold and flu season, you want to have as little exposure to germs as possible. Following are some products that can help with this endeavor.
Clorox Disinfecting Wipes can tackle many of the germiest messes you encounter, the company says, and they are effective against flu viruses like 2009 H1N1. Carry a tube in your truck, or take Clorox Wipes To Go with you when you visit truckstops and other rest areas. The wipes come in three different scents: fresh, orange and lavender. Lysol also offers disinfecting wipes in four-in-one and dual-action formulas.
Lysol also offers disinfectant sprays, including Lysol Disinfectant Spray To Go. The company says the sprays are an EPA-registered disinfectant that kills more than 99.9 percent of illness-causing bacteria and viruses on environmental surfaces.
Germ-X Hand Sanitizer kills 99.99 percent of germs, the company says, and can be used when soap and water are not available. This antibacterial protection is great for people “on-the-go” The Dial Soap Company offers a similar product, which the company says is dermatologist tested and hypoallergenic.
Affected trucks include model year 2008-2018 Freightliner Cascadia and Western Star 4700, 4900, 5700 and 6900 trucks. DTNA says after hard brake applications, the brake light pressure switch may not activate the brake lights with the light application of the brake pedal.
