How to Clean Rubber Floor Mats

When it comes to learning how to clean rubber floor mats, it’s important to keep in mind that this process is a little different than for other floor mats. To start, you’ll need to gather the proper supplies. These include a vacuum, rubber floor mat cleaner, a stiff-bristle brush, hose or bucket of water, microfiber towel, and a space to hang your mats to dry. Once you have everything you need, follow these steps to clean rubber floor mats:

  • Remove your rubber floor mats from the vehicle
  • Shake out any debris, crumbs, etc. 
  • Thoroughly rinse the mats with the hose or bucket of water
  • Generously scrub the rubber mats using a stiff-bristle brush and the rubber floor mat cleaner solution to remove grime and debris
  • Rinse the mats clean
  • Dry with a microfiber towel or hang-dry
  • Replace your like-new mats back in your vehicle when fully dried!

How to Clean Carpet Floor Mats

The process for how to clean car floor mats that are carpet material is similar to the process above, however, you’ll find some of the necessary cleaning supplies differ. To get a carpet floor mat clean, you’ll want a carpet cleaner instead of a rubber cleaning solution. Also, a wet vacuum cleaner could be very useful if you can get your hands on one. Before you begin, take the mats out and shake out any debris. The next steps include:

  • Vacuum the carpet mats
  • Use the carpet floor mat cleaner according to the instructions
  • Scrub the mats to remove any stains or hard-to-remove debris
  • Rinse completely with hose or bucket of water
  • If you have access to a wet vac, utilize that at this stage
  • Hang your mats to dry and— again— replace when fully dry
