A quick guide on cleaning rubber mats.

Date Posted:20 January 2011 

With all the humid weather mould and mildew has been making it's home in a few of our cars, the 356 Carrera is just one of them. Here is a short piece on quickly cleaning the rubber mats from this unpleasant organic coating! 

Our Vinyl Care product is ideal for cleaning any rubber surface up quick and easy. First off, vacuum the floors from any dirt and rubbish.

 

Then spray the Vinyl Care into an old mitt or cloth, the reason we do not use the new Interior Pack applicator will become obvious when you see the next few shots! Lather it in, cleaning the surface well. Don't forget to clean the pedals too, use a soft bristle brush for them if nessesary. 

  

Then, get an old microfibre cloth and wipe it all off.

 

This is why you use old cloths for this job, both of these can be reused after a good wash in the washing machine. Never use them to clean anything else if they are dirty, as they can move the mould spores to anything else they touch.

 

The finished product, not bad hey? Best thing for the rubber mats is this product it's not slippery, nor does it leave a unnatural shiny finish. We love it. :)
