Question WD40 Issue !!!

Ran the truck thru a car wash so the interior would get real clean, and it sure did..... the fool at the detail part sprayed WD40 all over my rubber floor (No carpeting). Now, my foot slips and slides all over the place while on the pedals - scary - !!

I'm gonna try just some Dawn and Water ..... any other suggestions? I like the way it looks, but I need it off of there so I can drive safely.

Try some citrus cleaner. I use the 3M stuff in a spray can when I spill oil on my garage floor. It works great, but very very expensive.

You might try a vinegar and water solution.

I'd make the guy who sprayed it and spread it clean it up. That's why I never go to car washes, they can really destroy a vehicle.

I've got to ask. Was it actually WD40? I would lose my mind if it was.

Absolutely ..... unmistakable odor and glossy shine. Took a dry rag and scrubbed it - helped a little - will find something at Lowes tomorrow - I can't stand vinegar smell ......... reminds me of a boy's gym smell !

You sure it wasn't Armor All? That stuff is slick as hell.

When I worked Retail 20 years ago in my youth, the store manager always had us clean armor All spills up with a can of Coke.

We'd wipe up the armor all, dry it with paper towels, then we'd crack a can of coke, pour it over the spill area. Let it sit for a few minutes, then mop it up. It would take the slickness and the shine right off.

I had the same thing (Armor-all) in my old Ranger "Edge". It's amazing how slippery that stuff is when it gets on the floor, the bottom of your shoes, and the gas/break pedals! Your original idea of using Dawn dishwashing liquid is probably your best bet. If it works on ducks, it should work on your floor (lol).
