I read something about how Windex is great to clean the floor with,so I tried it. It works great.

I couldn't find seem to find anything before that worked as food and easily as Windex does. Thought I'd share the idea or get any suggestions from you guys on how you clean your floor.

Yeah I have a lot of time on my hands today... I parked this morning around 10am and I was assigned a load for tomorrow morning at 8am. So I figured I'd clean my truck more since I'm trying to keep it very clean with it being new and what not.

Forgot to mention, I can't pick it up early since they will.be closed by the time I could drive again. So that sucks. But hurry up and wait. Now I'm just rambling. rofl-3.gif

I use the Swiffer Wet cleaning cloths. I do not use the"Mop device". Just the cloths on my hands and knees. I also have a special pair of slip on shoes that I wear outside the truck. They never go further than the floor in front of the drivers seat. Keeps the rest of the floors much cleaner. Fuel islands are filthy and oily, not to mention the rest of the truck stop inside and out.

Jamie, I'm getting a little worried about you and your new truck. Are you OCD? Try to remember that the inside of your truck is not an operating room in a hospital. The floor of your truck is supposed to be like a survival shelter. If you are stranded, you should be able to survive off of dropped food for at least two weeks.

Anybody got suggestions on the dust on the gauges? I use a swifter duster but those little specks drive me nuts.

I use Simple Green for everything. Non-toxic, no bad fumes. Buy the full strength and dilute it out for various. I use it for everything from cleaning guns (full strength in an ultrasonic cleaner), to various dilutions for countertops, etc.

The only thing it doesn't work well on, is glass (streaks it).

As most may know, TMC has very strict truck cleaning policies. It's part of our pay structure.

I have two large towels that run the middle section between the 2 seats, and another that covers the carpeted area in my berth.

Under the front floor mats are 2 cut to size no slip pieces of material typically used in cabinets to keep my floor mats from sliding but to also allow them to get air under them and not leave moisture/mold on the floor after truck washes.

For the plastic/gauges/etc, I use a handheld swifter. I use Q-tips (but w/ pointed end to get my air vents, etc)

Use freebreeze for vehicle interiors for all the leather, then a non-corroshive cleaner (doesn't leave a messy residue) to finish off the entire cab, leather, plastic and all.

I use a bucket of warm water with dawn dish soap. It takes everything off.
