Car mat cleaners are needed in the winter months as plush carpets get discoloured with mud and water stains in the freezing cold weather.
LeaseCar says road users can remove stains with a simple solution that can be made in just minutes.
Motorists must mix 200ml of white vinegar, two tablespoons of fabric softener, two tablespoons of baking soda, half a tablespoon of dish soap and 10-15 oil drops with 200ml of hot water.
The mix should then be sprayed directly onto the affected carpets and left for a few minutes to soak. Mats which are still dirty can be taken away from the vehicle and placed in a bucket of the solution until they are clean.
