driverside floormat.... how can I get rid of...?

I took out my floormats today to clean them and I noticed when I put them in the light the drivers side has sort of a worn flat spot on it from where my foot is all the time. How can I get the clean and fluffed up again so it looks good and doesn't look like its going to die? Thanks!

YOu could try scrubbing it with a brush and some cleaner. Although, I don't think it will look too much better. If you keep the mats long enough, you will eventually wear a hole through it in that spot.

I already tried scrubbing it.... is that normal for that spot to be there? And is there a way to prevent rubbing a hole through it?

Yea, it is normal. That is where you heel rest and rubs the mat as you move your foot between the gas and break. You could just buy some cheap mats to go over your oe ones and take them out when you want the car to look good.

well its going to eventually going to pop through but. way to fluff it up is to wash the matt and while it is drying take a brush and go across the grain and let it dry that way then when it dries you can brush it back down and that should fluff it back up a little

well, my worthless driver's side OEM mat wears a hole in it where my heels are every 3 months or so...i've gotten it replaced by my dealership 4 times, but it is just crap...im convinced of that. i'll get some aftermarket mats someday, for now i'll have to get Rubber mats to rid myself of this problem.[IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif[/IMG]

Yeah, I hear that. That's why I'm just going to order a metal set. [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif[/IMG] How low maintenance is that?

It's not that it isn't fluffed up anymore, but it is just that it is worn away.

honda should have made the mats with a rubber/plastic area for the heel that won't wear as bad as carpet. i bought some mats like that at walmart for my old car a while ago. they wore pretty well.
