Interior cleaning?

Ok so last night a few of my buddies got stuck in some nasty stuff and of course I went to help with the windows out. My inside is pretty much caked in mud. Trying to get some opinions on cleaning seats, seats belts ect. Thanks

I used to do that on my '07 with cloth. Worked great. Not so eager to do it on the new one with leather. Does anyone know if the leather interior is hose-able like the cloth?

Start with a shop vac and rags and get as much out as you can before you try anything else would be my first step. Adding cleaners or more water would just make it all spread, I would think.

As for the hose on leather, I wouldn't want my seats subjected to THAT much water. They'll take longer to dry, and I can't imagine it would be good for them. I'd do the same as above, and when it comes time to clean the leather seats I'd just use lots of rags and lots of clean water. But that's just me...

Thanks guys. Will be removing carpet and more than likely throwing away. No idea why I have waited this long to take it out. Just ordered quadratec floor liner combo for front, rear and cargo. What about air vents?

That was my take on the leather as well. I simply make sure the roof/windows/doors are on if I get off the pavement and save myself the hassle and headache.

Yeah, we went wheeling three weeks ago in some nice, red clay with the doors off. I spent one entire weekend cleaning the dust out of everything. Then Mike took his top off on Monday and it is FILTHY again! I'm guessing the dust that was embedded in the seats and SpiderWebShade just got blown around once the top came off.

Forgot to ask about doors. I've got mud jammed up in the seals and all that good stuff. I know there's no electrical things in my doors. Should taking my doors off and hosing them inside and out and in a the books and crannies be okay?

Most vehicles have weep holes because water gets in the doors, so I don't think water in the door itself is going to be an issue, especially with nothing electrical
