Cleaning all weathered mats

I did a full detail on my interior this weekend, minus my all weather floormats. I wasn't sure what I should use to clean them up and they are looking pretty nasty. Wasn't sure if taking to pressure washer and foam brush would be good for them.

All purpose degreaser.... and a brush. That will leave them as new (except for the wear) If they are only mildly dirty, just shampoo.

A simple wash and a brush will do wonders. When your done, wipe them down with some 303 and keep them looking good!

Be careful using 303 on the AW mats.... I did and they ended up a bit slick. When I attempted to get in the car the first few times my foot lost it grip and it was none to graceful. Not too mention my knee hitting the steering column/dash did not feel great. Made them look good as new though.....

I'm not sure how you apply it but I've never had that problem.
