All-weather floor liners are intended to be easy to clean and to protect your interior from weather, spills and other messes. Although there are many different brands of all-weather floor mats, each with their own qualities and characteristics, the general concept is the same.
How to Clean Your Car Floor 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 carwash, for example, use the heavy-duty clips on the wall to hang up your floor mats.
- Wet the mats then 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’s leftover residue, use a medium-length bristled brush to clean it off.
- It’s 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 the mats to your vehicle and re-attach to the floor of the car (if applicable).
All-weather floor mats are as easy as that to maintain and can greatly prolong the lifespan of your vehicle’s interior.
