Best way to clean mud from your interior?

For mud all inside my jeep yesterday and now I'm wondering how to go about cleaning it. Pull the carpet and hose it down? What about the seats? What can I get wet and what can I not get wet? Thanks!

Don't get the steering wheel or CD player/dash area wet....I just wipe those down with a rag. You probably don't want to hose the stock seats as they will take a while to dry. For the carpet....it just depends on how muddy it is. If it is not too bad, then wait for it to dry. Then you can just pick up or vacuum the dry chunks and wipe the carpet down with a rag. If it is real bad, you can take the carpet out and hose it down real well. If I do that I like to setup a fan on the carpet for a day or two so that it doesn't stink.

Or...my favorite way is just to leave the mud, so you won't feel as bad about doing it again next weekend.

I used both the woolite, and the scotchguard foaming upolstery cleaner and both worked well getting a mud spots off the seats. For more serious stuff, probably the green machine as featured above.
I sealed them with scotchguard and mud does come off easier with some mild soap and a wet towel.
Unless I get caught up in the mud hole hysteria wheeling with other Jeeps... I tend to avoid it when possible.
