Protect carpeting with quality floor mats
Winter can be tough on a car, inside and out. Not surprisingly, your car’s carpeting seems to take an especially tough beating during those oh-so-cold winter months. In fact, nearly every time you get in your car, you’re bound to track in salt, slush and ice.
Rubber waffle-style floor mats are a great way to keep these winter mainstays at bay. The mats stay in place, and they’re easy to keep clean. Carpet-style floor mats work well, too.
Every so often, be sure to pull your floor mats out of your car and douse them with a hose. The water pressure will help wash away mud and grime that has accumulated. Before long, the mats will be as good as new. (Helpful tip: be sure to let your floor mats dry thoroughly before you put them back in your car.)
