virtualenv and kivy

Hello everyone! I was wondering how I could run a kivy app in a virtual environment using virtualenv. I've only recently been using virtual environments for my coding so far (trying to break the bad habit). I understand everything up to the point of needing to install the dependencies for kivy (SDL2 etc.). That's my major problem. Also, will a virtual environment prevent me from cluttering or messing up my computer (an example would be saving files in unknown places)? And would a virtual environment interfere with me saving excel files to my desktop in my app? Thanks in advance!
