Cleaning All-Weather Mats
The entire point of all-weather floor liners is for them to be easy to clean and to protect your interior from weather, spills, and other messes. There are a ton of different all-weather mats to choose from, but the cleaning process will remain the basically the same for any of them. The name of the game is ease of maintenance!
If it’s just a bit of dirt, or a minor spill, of course they can just be vacuumed out or hosed off like anything else. However if things get really bad, here’s what you need to do in order to get your mats looking great again:
How to Clean Your Car Floor Mats
- Remove your all-weather floor mats by unhooking them from the floor (if applicable). 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 DIY carwash, most have 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 (if applicable).
The steps above should take care of just any mess that should befall your all-weather floor mats. You’d have to try pretty hard for them to need anything more than that, because that’s the point of them! Your resale value will thank you!
