Snowy road

Letting salt stains fester on your floor mats can cause long-term visual damage to your car’s interior. Don’t put off the scrubbing sessions until spring cleaning; remove salt stains today by following these simple steps:


Step one: Collect the following household supplies:

  • Bucket or spray bottle
  • A bottle of white vinegar
  • Hot water
  • Hard-bristle brush
  • Paper towels or vacuum cleaner (if desired)


Step two: Make a half-and-half solution of hot water and white vinegar in your bucket or spray bottle.


Step three: If you’re using a bucket, pour a small amount of the solution onto the salt-stained area of the mat. If you’re using a spray bottle, spray the affected area with the solution. Let the solution sit for one minute.


Step four: Scrub vigorously with a toothbrush, rag, or larger brush to remove the stain.


Step five: Use a towel to soak up the remaining solution, or use a vacuum to suction it up.


Step six: Allow floor mats to fully dry before placing them back in your vehicle.
