How do you clean Tesla's WeatherTech mats? Do you remove them and clean?
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.)
That's exact wrong thing to do.
PS: I do the same thing
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.
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.
