Cleaning Floor Mats

I don't know about you, but I'm not a winter girl. I do not care for the cold. I don't love dealing with the snow. I hate all the extra layers to get onto kids who don't like coats to begin with. I hate all the weather related cancelations that just mess us up. And of course, I hate the mess that winter seems to bring.

It's funny. I know some people think of spring as being muddy, or summer as being sandy, but for some reason, nothing seems messier to me than the snow and salt and slush and grit that winter drags in. Sure, the snow is beautiful when it falls, but within hours it's just a mess. And no matter how many shoe rules we try to institute, my kitchen floor ends up needing to be mopped much more frequently.

Not only that, but the floor mats in the car take a huge beating. I've got my all-weather mats down, but even with that, the carpet mats underneath are just gross. Feet are stepping from dirty parking lots right onto those mats every single day. Yuck.

I did get into a good schedule of cleaning and vacuuming my car, but when the mats look dirty, it doesn't matter how much vacuuming you do. They're going to look dirty, even after a good vacuum. When I was cruising Pinterest I found this technique to get your mats looking fresh and new, and it was actually incredibly effective. I don't even want to KNOW how much grit I washed off, but I like the result!

What is your strategy for keeping your car floors clean?
