Removing and Cleaning Front Seat Mats, Back Seat Mats and Cargo Mats
- Remove your all-weather floor mats by unhooking them from the floor. The hooks or snaps are usually located at the corners of the mats. If your floor mats don’t have hooks, just lift up and out.
- If you’re at home, simply lay the mats (face up) on the ground. If you’re at a do-it-yourself carwash, use the heavy-duty clips on the wall to hang up your floor mats.
- After wetting the mats, apply a mild or car-specific detergent, such as Griot’s Garage Car Wash Soap, to the mats.
- Rinse with a high pressure hose. If there is leftover residue, use a medium-length bristled brush to clean it off.
- It is best to allow the rubber floor mats to air-dry, but if you’re in a rush, a microfiber towel is perfect for absorbing any excess water.
- Return mats to their corresponding location and re-attach to the floor of the car (if applicable).
