Default WeatherTech Floor Liners: How To Clean?

Iíve owned weathertech floor liners in the last 5-6 trucks Iíve owned. The ones I have now are the first black ones Iíve owned. Either they changed the composition of the rubber or itís the black but I canít get them clean. Itís just some southeast Texas sugar sand mud but it wonít budge. I tried using dawn dish soap and car washing brush, like I have always had success with, but it doesnít look like I used anything other than water. Any good ideas?

There was a thread on them a while back, seems like everyone agreed they were junk. I had ordered a set two days prior to thread and I must say after a couple of months of owning them they are junk. I’ll be ordering husky’s.

Mine didn’t hold shape, edges are curled, never fit quite right to begin with, seem thinner than in the past, won’t come clean. The mats that came in the truck were much better but locked together in a way that made removing rear mats a PIA, probably should’ve just stuck with them.

Pressure wash and then spray with tire foam. Doesn’t matter weather tech or husky.

I've had the same problem. ****ed things straight up won't clean no matter how hard you scrub. I'll try the power wash/tire foam.

I power-wash mine THEN give them a healthy coat of armorall. Like a real healthy coat.


They look brand new. If you don't armorall them they just look worn and tired.

This I regret buying mine. Miss my huskeys that were in my Ford.

The WTís are literally the only thing I hate about my tundra

Agree, with the Armour all is the only thing I have found to make them look decent.

Also, agree my Huskies were much better.

Thatís rare but It could happen! I bet they didnít roll up like a taco like WTís do? WTís cause tripping hazards and nice youíve had them for a while ( 5 or 6 months) ! Huskyís are much more pliable!

I have black WTs in my truck. You aren't kidding about not being able to get them to look clean. I've scrubbed and scrubbed and tried different cleaners, bleach, pressure washer, scrub brushes, etc and when they dry they always look dirty.

Mine will be 3 years old in June and so far they have held up well and I have not had issues with the not staying in place or curling up. Other than always looking a little grungy I can't say that I dislike them. I'll try Huskys next time since they seem to be much better liked. But the WTs have honestly been fine for me.

I think itís more of the texture and fading more than dirty. Iíve ran in them in all my vehicles for 5 years and have zero complaints. The car wash I use puts something on them to shine them up without being slippery like armor all. Iím not sure what it is but makes them look brand new.

Iíve got black weathertechs in my f250, the only way Iíve been able to get them to look clean is spray them down with tire shine after washing them. Wipe the excess off after the shine soaks in a few minutes, this will keep them from being as slippery.

I have WT's but they are light brown they clean up fine. Mine are starting to curl up on the edges and not fit quite as good but hell they are 10 years old. You would curl up too if you had been stuck in a really hot truck or really cold truck for 10 years LOL. Try wetting them down and cover with oxy clean.

I've had WT liners in 10 vehicles with no complaints... until now. Same issues mentioned in my wife's Armada and my truck. They won't clean up, they're curled up, yada yada.

ETA: I'm convinced the newer WT is made with a different rubber material than the older models. They are significantly thinner/flimsier, as well.

I have tan WT's in mine, 9 yrs old. They're still in great shape. Clean up fine and no curling. I did however trim the drivers side back a little next to the E-brake because it leaned out slightly and would catch on it.

I would scrub them with Super Clean and power wash. If you want to turn them back to black use Cerakote trim restore.
