    Rubber Floot mat Maitenance

    Looking for suggestion for a product to maintain new look on rubber floor mats.

    Dont like the way the black mats...kinda look dull and greyish black after a while. Also dont want them slick.

    Saw weather Tec makes one.

    I use the WeatherTech protectant. Their cleaner is nothing special but the protectant works well.

    DP has a cleaner/protectant.
    McKee's has a floor mat/cargo liner rejuvinator.

    I've used Meguiar's Hyper Dressing diluted 50/50 on our rubber floor mats and it looked ok. Honestly, I don't care if the rubber mats look a little greyish. As long as their CLEAN and free from dirt and debris thats all that matters to me.

    If you want to dress yours, check out this video:

    I have been using the BF on my floor liners. No complaints. And I like the fact it's 32oz.

    BLACKFIRE Mat Cleaner & Protectant - 32 oz. (autogeek.net)

    Might want to give #253 A look also.

    I made the mistake of using DG 253 on my weather techs. Looked great...but OMG....this made the mats so slippery and potential dangerous until the 253 wore off. Not just clean with APC.

    I think I'm going to give BF mat cleaner & protectant a try.

    I have heard that some wipe off their mats after a drying period with a microfiber towel, which removes most of the slipperiness but I admit I haven’t tried DG 253 on mats due to other comments like yours.
