Default How do I clean the inside..

Of my 91'. It has the rubber matted floor so dirt gets collected easy in the nooks and crannies of it. What would be an effective easy way to remove this grime and dirt?

i have a hard regular scrub brush you buy from auto zone not a steel one or anything thats going to tear the vinyl. get the spray bottle of armor all and wipe it with a rag.

Is there a certain Armor all to get? I know there are tons of different stuff out there just a general interior cleaner from them will do?

I just use Meguiar's Quick Interior Detail spray, then wipe down. If it's hardcore dirty, I sometimes pull the vinyl and scrub it with Simple Green then hose it off. Let it totally dry out for a week or so, then coat it with the Meguire's and wipe down with a microfiber. I do the same for interior plastics. It doesn't leave the typical grease shit the Armor-All products leave.

You don't have to take it out, I never did. Also try a tooth brush with soap/water or armor all to get the small cracks etc

I vacuum mine first then scrub with a wet rag to get the dirt out. Then I use Armor-All on it to make it black. It makes the floor slick though and if you have floor mats they'll slide around. But, once it's clean it look s good. It cleans better than carpet which is why I got my truck with vinyl in the first place.

Another great way to clean nooks and crannies is with compressed air if you got it. A shot of window cleaner let it sit for a minute, then blast it out with air and wipe with whatever protectant you want. Works great and it's fast too.
