draining mud

so I have herculined my interior and that's all well and good. but it's all kinds of dirty and when i go to spray out my floorboard, all that seems to happen is the dirt is pushed around, or it sprays up onto the rest of my dash, but never really drains out the holes in the floor. grrrrrr!!!!!

Well you probably shouldn't be using the high pressure washer to clean the inside with.

nah....using either the spot free rinse(which is pretty low pressure) or something equal to that. never the high pressure...that would REALLY just blow dirt and mud everywhere!

I always just leave the garden hose running on the inside for a while. Volume is what will carry it out, not velocity or speed. Then to get the tiny marks out - I go to town on the interior with the pressure washer.

i took all the carpet out. i do still have it for when i go on long road trips, as it helps with noise a little bit(the carpet with the liner), but it's a jeep and I expect noise, so it doesn't bother me. mainly did the liner so i could protect the floorboards, and so i wouldn't have to worry about keeping the carpet clean and i could just hose out the floor.

i always put my hose 3/4 on and let it pour and fill the floor with water, it makes like a pool, then I use the hose thats flowing under water to push the mud towards the drain hole, after a couple minutes the water is pretty clean and i almost never wet my dash

Put the water hose inside the rig and while its running and use an upholstery brush to push the mud towards the drain holes.

LoL, all my Jeeps did this as well. Seems like the water would never get the dirt out I tried trickleing water with a hose, i tried regular hose, pressure washer, you name it. Only thing that works for me is to get a wet dry vac, vac up the dirt, spray it for a long time, vac it up, rinse and repeart.

There is always mud on my floor boards. Can't say it really matters to me.

hahahaha. whitey, i had to do that last sunday morning in abut 25degree weather so my pants wouldnt gte clay all over em......

i'm wondering if maybe when you applied the herculiner you got it too thick in certain areas and it doestn allow the water to carry the debris out the drain holes? but i know the frustration of trying to get it all out. i dont think i've evere gotten all of the mud out of mine, but i figure if i can get the majority out and there no clods of it, i'm good to go
