Rubber floor mats cleaning

Step-by-step instruction

  1. First, you will need to gather a few supplies. You will need mild soap, water, and a soft brush. You may also want to use a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush attachment to remove any dirt or debris before you start washing.
  2. Next, mix the soap and water together in a bowl or bucket. Dip the brush into the mixture and then start scrubbing the floor mats. Be sure to get into all of the nooks and crannies. Once you have scrubbed the mats, rinse them off with clean water.
  3. Finally, let the mats air dry or pat them down with a towel. Do not put them back in your car until they are completely dry, as this could cause mildew to form.

3D Liners are available for the most popular cars, trucks and SUVs that are used by the Americans. These mats are a popular and cost-effective alternative to Weathertech, and unlike Husky liners do not contain any components that fall under the Prop 65. 3D MAXpider mats fit right and protect floor area from dirt, dust, slush, particles, etc. You can check the floor mats for your vehicle to determine, whether that is the look you are into.
