    Personally I just use windex to keep it clean. Then again I wipe down the floor every few days so it stays fairly clean.

    If it's really dirty, use a bucket of water and some shop towels to get the first 95% of the dirt and grime out.

    Assuming it's a rubber or vinyl floor, I use hot water, Dawn dish soap and a brush for the initial cleaning. After it dries I use tire shine gel. Screenshot_20201204-101027.png

    DO NOT put it under the floor mats though!!! It gets very slick for a day or so, but after that it stays shiny, and then I just use a rag to wipe it down when it looks dirty. I scrub the floor and re coat it twice a year

    A short handle wheel brush (home depot) for cleaning the floor. A 1/2 inch paint brush for the dash and vents. A duster, spray nine and Armor All.

    If you’re getting the truck used and already dirty, start out with 409 cleaner and scrub with terrycloths. If it’s real bad you’ll probably want to scrub good, then Shopvac to get the loosened clumps up. Then go over it again with 409. After that I go over it good with armor all in the spray bottle and micro fiber cloth. You can keep it up with a quick vacuum and Armor All job from there.

    Pilot’s gray floor towels work great as floor mats to contain mud and such, or so ive heard.....

    Keep that cab inside looking new and showroom factory fresh. Disinfects and Kills 100% of corona and other viruses.

    Tire Shine on the rubber mats works wonders too after Armor All...

    I used to use fantastic cleaner. It works better than most. Especially on grease. The fumes are strong though. Now it’s Lysol Lemon multi purpose. Contains a fungicide, kills mold.Small Concentrate bottles sold at Dollar store. Mix my own. Make it as strong as you like. Works on grease.
