So how do you get the mud out?

Got back from a weekend camping trip on monday and couldn't clean the Jeep until today. Got some mud/dirt in the interior and I' having trouble getting all of it out. Its mostly on the plastic parts such as the fenders and the plastic bits in the door I've tried everything I can think of. So how do you deal with the old mud the has made its new home in your plastic?

Soap, water and a soft bristled toothbrush!

Yea soap and some type of soft bristle brush and then Back to Black to finish it off.
I also hit the fenders with some Armor All before I hit the trails, it seems to keep the dirt and mud from settling in the rough plastic crevasses.
Thinking of trying that new stuff they advertise on TV that you wipe on plastic parts and see if that works better. Back to Black only lasts about a week if it rains.

A "magic eraser" works good to get the last dirt that shows up when the fenders dry. The kind I use is called extra power. Im not sure if that type works any better because its the only kind I have tried. Mothers back to black works wonders after you have the fenders pretty clean. I wouldn't use b2b inside the tub.

Some one the Georgia forum posted about "Greased Lightening". It worked wonders on my jeep! I've found the plastic around the bottom of door is the most difficult to clean and that stuff cleaned it right up. You can get it at Home Depot. Also used it to clean fender flares, top, and vinyl on doors. After it's cleaned then it's Back to Black.

The last time I got a lot of mud in mine I found it easiest to take all the trim, seats, etc out and wash it all out of the jeep. Just depends on how much mud you have and how clean you want it.

I haven't cleaned the inside of my jeep in over a year. My dash looked tan from all the dirt and mud. I used that "black Magic" stuff and my dash and panels look new again.
