If you have been reading along please take note because I offered some simple advice on an easy way to clean your car's floor mats.
Stupid is as stupid does! It worked on my cars mats but NOT on my husband's. Crap and now I have to make sure I didn't totally just ruin our washing machine. Please say a small prayer.
You see, my mats are smaller and have a fabric backing. His have a rubber backing and are pretty big and MELTED onto the inside of the washing machine. So now, at a desperate attempt, I am running the machine with warm water and vinegar to try and help loosen the rubber stuck to the inside of the tub. I am scrubbing and scraping to get the gick off. This is worse than accidentally washing a disposable diaper in the washing machine. Please tell me I'm not the only one who has ever done that!
See the black rim! I think my heart was in my throat when I noticed this. Doh!
These are actual flecks from the rubber backing. Oh I could kick myself.
let you know how it goes. :(
