In the past we wrote a page about how to clean your car mats. Which materials should you use? Which cleaning supplies can you use and which should you avoid at all costs. Cleaning rubber car mats is a bit different than cleaning carpet car mats. As you can probably imagine, you need to be a bit more careful when cleaning carpet car mats.
You can easily clean rubber car mats with a garden hose or a pressure washer. You can also use a multipurpose cleaner or other cleaning agents to clean your rubber car mats. You'll need to watch out for overly aggressive cleaning supplies as they could give the rubber a dull appearance.
Method for cleaning rubber car mats:
- Take the rubber mats out of your car. This is essential because you don't want to run the risk of getting moisture in your car.
- First use a vacuum cleaner to remove and loose filth. Use the vacuum on both sides of the mats.
- Shake the mats out once more so the rest of the loose filth falls off. (You can also do this by hitting the mat against a wall.)
- Is the filth stuck to the mat? You can use a scraper or a spatula to get it off the mats.
- Now you must clean the mats with a garden hose, pressure washer, or a damp cloth. Tip: Pressure washers are available at car washes to spray down your mats.
- If necessary, use a cleaning agent or liquid soap to ensure a deep clean.
- It is essential that the mats be dry before placing them back in your car. Is the option of waiting for them to dry not available? For example if you're at a gas station. Turn the heat on the highest setting and let the warm air blow on max towards your feet.
