Mix 2 parts windex 1 part water in a spray bottle. Spray entire floor, scrub with terry cloth. Repeat if desired... That works best for me. Or you can get some citrus cleaner and use it mixed the same way. It has an oily film that shines em up good!

i actually found warm water in a bucket with either mild dish soap, or powder tide to work best, apply with brush, vac up the excess, wipe with towel

I agree with this. When im done washing the truck i normally suck up the excess dirt with a shop vac and wipe it down with the wash mit that i used to wash the truck.

first vaccum it out

then simply green it with a towel

third and last, get clean towel and mothers rubber shine, rub the floor down real good

it will look clean and fresh but without being slippery...which can be a death wish

i vacuum the floor and then use some cleaner (tire cleaner, simple green, soap and water) they all work. Wipe it all out real good and dry it. And then i use clear tire shine (i use turtle wax tire shine i think) and coat the floor.

After you clean it just mix half baby oil and half brake fluid and wipe. This will give it a shine that will last a long time. I use this on my tires and it lasts for weeks.
