    Cleaning All Weather Floor Mats

    Hi, I recently purchased the all weather floor mats from Subaru and they've become pretty dirty. I was wondering if anyone could give me an effective way to clean them. They are rubber so I was wondering if a degrease product (Simple Green) would make them fade after a while.
    -Thanks

    I threw them down on the driveway and used my pressure washer, but I'm sure you could just use a high pressure nozzle on a hose and maybe a big scrub brush with MILD detergant.

    I usually just spray them down with the hose and give them a light spraying with an all purpose cleaner and scrub them with a brush and spray them off.

    That has worked fine for me for years.

    Pretty much the same for me, I just hosed the bigger stuff off (pine needles mainly). Then took some dish soap and a brush to them to get the actual dirt off. Brand new done.

    Easy. Go to one of those self service car wash places. Most of them have these super heavy duty clips on the walls to hold your floor mats. Use the high pressure soap and then rinse and they'll be spotless.

    I just wash them with the leftover soap from washing the car and scrub them with the wheel brush

    Easy and cost effective way is to remove the floor mats out of the vehicle and place them on a hard, flat surface...Rinse off the rubber mats using the hose. Using a high pressure on the hose, will help to remove dried-on mud or dirt easily..

    Using floor mats in new car is always demand some special care especially in rainy season. Moslty we clean our floor mats at home by using some surf or soap with little hot water.
