It is impossible without carpets in the car, because they protect the finishing material from dirt and, more importantly, water. But not a single motorist is 100 percent insured that one day the water will be not only on the rubber mat, but also under it. In this case, it is very important to promptly remove all moisture until an unpleasant odor appears and even more destructive consequences appear.
The autumn-winter period brings a huge number of difficulties for drivers: mud, slush and snow - this is not a complete list. All of the above contaminates the interior of the car and makes the area around the carpet damp. It is even worse when the water is outside the protective element of the driver or passengers lying underfoot.
Getting rid of water and dampness underfoot in a car is not as difficult as it might seem at first glance. The easiest way is to temporarily remove the rug and replace it with any item that absorbs moisture well. The most accessible are synthetic winterizer and ordinary newsprint. Both the one and the other will quickly absorb all the moisture, after which the "gasket" can be thrown away.
If you need to quickly remove water directly from the rubber mat, then you can do it in the winter without even taking the last one out of the cabin. To do this, you need to make some strong snowballs and just put them in puddles of water. The snow will quickly absorb water from the rubber mat, after which all that remains is to throw the snow overboard.
