How to clean WeatherTech mats?

The one on the passengre side, which is rarely used, has some dark marks on the raised area but on the driver side, in the area where my foot hangs out all the time, there is a large dark area that I cannot get out. I usually use the remaining car wash and scrub with a stiff brush with little change. Since it's rubber I then tried Amazing Roll-Off, again no change. Any suggestions?

Re: How to clean WeatherTech mats?

an APC would have been my choice also ...just remember to refrain from any protectant type product as thats not an area where slippery when wet is a good option.

I've been using PB's Natural Look on my rubber mats and after a thorough buff-off have no slipperiness. I've since used it to dress the pedal covers with the same result. Nice, long-lasting matte finish that seems to repel crud. Your mileage may vary.
