RUBBER MATS SPRUCE UP
#1
Whats the best and most durable solution to sprucing up slightly tired looking Rubber Mats without leaving them slippy? I always hose them down to remove as much grime as possible but beginning to lose their shine ( A bit like me !!! ) Any advice much appreciated .

I usually use some of that lemon garage hand cleaner,the one with the gritty bits in,and use a stiff brush.
It gets them looking good again without any slipperyness.

I use a bit of washing up liquid in warm water and the yard broom to give them a scrub.

I steam clean mine at work then use dash shine on a cloth when dry. Obviously be aware of silicone making the mats slippery etc.

Stardrops or any other household all purpose cleaner.
