    Cloth fender liner cleaning

    So I detailed an extremely muddy truck last week. The mud was extremely thick. After I got done with getting the mud off, I was left with cleaning the liner. I was able to get them cleaned, but there were grass particles woven into the fabric. What is the best way that I can get these cleaned properly??

    I hate these things on our truck. I can get the rest of the truck nice and clean and those liners leave me disappointed, so also curious how others tackle this

    To clean debris from being stuck, I use a Metro Side Kick. Works pretty well most of the time.

    Still don't like any method I've tried to "dress" them.

    Try tire foam.

    I've been thinking about taking a vacuum to them with a stiff brush attachment to get the stubborn grass out. After washing of course...

    Anyone tried that?

    No, but this 1 would work.

    Currently, I am using McKee's 37 aerosol trim detailer. Looks pretty good until the first time the car is driven.

    I'll have to investigate tire foam. Any more details you can provide?

    Thanks!

    Re: Cloth fender liner cleaning

    Does anyone why they use plastic on the front wheels liner but that carpet like material on the back? Seems like all my cars have been that way and it sucks, hard plastic is much easier to clean. Maybe for noise insulation?

    Why would they reduce noise for the kids in the rear and not the driver who’s actually paying for the vehicle? I dunno why they do it, but felt for noise reduction doesn’t make sense.
