How To Clean Rubber Floor Mats
Posted by Mike on 8/1/2011
Rubber floor mats are extremely
durable and are very easy to maintain. Mud, leaves and snow can be easily washed
from them and they are resistant to constant wear and tear.
Besides cleaning them with
water, what is the best way to keep them looking brand new and preventing them from
turning white? Continue reading for our solution.
What You'll Need:
einszett Plastic Deep Cleaner
einszett Cockpit Premium
Plastic Deep Cleaner is a
concentrated cleaner that removes stubborn grime, stains and scuff marks from plastic, rubber and vinyl
surfaces using highly concentrated non-caustic detergents in a water-based
solution which is highly biodegradable. It's also petroleum-free so
it's safe for the surfaces of your car (won't dry surfaces out causing them
to turn white), safe for you and the environment.
Pull your floor mats out of the car and
shake off any loose debris.
the mats with Plastic Deep Cleaner and allow it to work for approximately
three minutes. Do not allow the product to dry. Plastic Deep Cleaner will
remove tough dirt and grime. If necessary, use a cotton towel or brush to
agitate deep dirt and stains.
With a hose and a spray nozzle, rinse the
floor mats thoroughly. Next, dry
the mats with a clean, lint-free cotton towel or microfiber towel.
After drying mats, you can keep
them looking factory new and prevent them from turning white by treating them
with Cockpit Premium. Cockpit Premium is an interior treatment for all clear and
colored plastic as well as rubber and vinyl surfaces. Unlike other protectants
on the market, Cockpit Premium leaves a shine-free and most importantly,
slip-free finish since it doesn't contain any silicone.
Never use an exterior
vinyl/rubber protectant such as Vinyl-Rubber Care and Protectant for interior
surfaces since they contain water-resistant silicone to repel water and snow for
long-lasting protection of exterior surfaces. While excellent for protection,
the slippery finish is not meant to be applied on surfaces you make contact with
such as floor mats, steering
wheel, pedals and shift knob. And if you ride a motorcycle, don't spray on the
tires or your seat.
On the other hand, Cockpit
Premium for interior surfaces will keep your rubber mats looking new without the
danger of slippage because it doesn't contain water-repelling silicone.
Keep your rubber floor mats clean and prevent them
from turning white with Plastic Deep Cleaner and Cockpit Premium.
