    When I wash the car, I just throw them on the driveway and hose them off. Let them dry in the sun.

    I leave them in place. Vacuum them to get rid of dust, etc. Then wipe them off with a damp cloth.

    (Now anticipating the arrival of a dozen people telling me that's the exact wrong thing to do.)

    I use an all purpose cleaner like Meguiar's D101 or D108. I also have a floor mat cleaner made by Chemical Guys that does a nice job as well, but probably isn't worth the extra price.

    See my review on another forum: Chemical Guys Mat Renew Floor Mat Cleaner and Protectant

    What you don't want to do is put a typical protectant (like Armor All, etc.) on the mat since this may increase the slickness of the mat and as a result your ability to slip around.

    +1. That's what I do also. The weather tech mats actually fit in the Tesla better than any other weather tech mats I have bought for previous cars. Originally I was hesitant on buying them for that reason. But the service center had them there and put them in for me to see.

    Thanks Erik

    When mine get really dirty, I take them out and put them on my driveway, spray them with Simple Green and scrub with a bristle brush, then hose off and let dry. But I only do that a few times a year.
