Can you wash bmw floor mats in the washer or do they have to be steam cleaned?

I have never heard of it being done but if you want to try it and let us know how that works out, that would be great

Nah, I'll wait for some advice.

I don't want to be the guinea pig.

Im not sure i would throw them in a washing machine for fear of ruining the machine, but if there heavy rubber backed, you can take a scrub brush, and cleaner, with a hose and clean them.....

OK Thanks for the advice. I'll learn from your mistakes. B) The pressure wash sounds like a good idea.

You could also go up to the grocery store and rent one of those rug doctors, too.
~$20 and you can do the carpets in the car, too.

How about cleaning the rubber floor mats? I just use soap and a toothbrush, but is there something better?

I have clear floor mats over my BMW ones, so the BMW ones never get dirty. All I have to do is clean the clear plastic ones with soap and water and just vacuum the BMW ones with a dust buster B)
