Dave showed viewers how to scrub up the rubber mats from their motor’s footwells and get them shiny and fresh.

He said: “There are so many different ways that you can clean your rubber mats.

“Today, we’re just going to keep it simple.

“I know there are going to be some detailers out there who don’t approve of this approach but…at the end of the day these are purely rubber mats, they’re not your best china.”

All you need is a multi-purpose kitchen spray, something like bog-standard kitchen cleaner, which you can pick up cheaply at shops like Poundland or B&M.

If you have that, a bucket and a scrubbing brush, it couldn’t be easier to leave your mats spic and span.

First, prepare the mats by going over them with a vacuum cleaner, just to get up any loose dirt or debris and make your life that little bit easier.

Then spray them down with the cleaning fluid and dunk your brush in a washing-up bowl filled with lukewarm water before scrubbing firmly.

The cleaner will likely foam up and go a darker colour as the grime is extracted from the rubber – this means it’s working.

Once you’ve scrubbed every nook and cranny, just wipe down with an old towel or cleaning rag and the mats should be good as new.

However, Dave revealed an “extra step” that you can make to take your cleaning game to another level.

He used a “plastic coat” liquid to give the mats an extra shiny finish.

You only need “the tiniest of blobs” on a sponge to wipe down the whole mat and leave it sparkling.

The exact product he used, from Infinity Wax, can be picked up online for just £12.75 per 500ml.

Social media commenters went wild for the handy hack.

One wrote: “Thank you for the video Dave. Good tips there.”

Another added: “That’s a great result, the mats looked awesome.”

It comes after a motors star revealed how to defrost your windscreen in seconds using a 10p everyday item.

Meanwhile, a couple converted a horse box into a mobile home and pulled their kids out of school to travel the world.
