Car mats don't always have it easy
The car mats in your car don't always have it easy. The soles of our shoes pick up a lot of filth and the majority ends up on our car mats. And we haven't even mentioned rainy or snowy days that make mud and brine to stick to the soles of your shoes.
Cleaning with a vacuum cleaner
The simplest way to clean your car mats is of course with a vacuum cleaner or by hand. Beating the mats will get rid of most of the filth and all that's left over can be removed with a vacuum cleaner.
Getting rid of stubborn filth
So what is one to do if the mats are covered not only in sand and dust but also stubborn filth like brine or oil? There are several cleaning agents that can be used to clean your car mats, but pay close attention to which you use.
Cleaning car mats with water
A good tip is to first try cleaning with water. Wet a brush and scrub carefully. Scrub the filth out using a fluid motion on the mats. Is the filth too stubborn to get out using only a brush and water? Then we move on to the next step.
You can try to clean your car mats with a mild multipurpose cleaning agent. Make sure that the cleaning agent isn't too concentrated. This could damage your car mats.
