Used floor mats

Just got some used winter rubber floor mats for my car. They’re a bit dirty. Was wondering what’s the best way to clean and protect them.
I was thinking of using some APC and use a brush. But I was more thinking about protection once the snowy/muddy shoes come out. Would Gtechniq C5 be any good?

I just clean mine and don't bother protecting them, but there was a thread not long back with people saying what they used, think Adams do a decent dressing for that sort of thing, just would not go for anything greasy

I used to just wash my wife’s rubber mats when she had them - tended to use cheap shampoo and brush and rinse well.

Let them dry and then back into car, no protection at all as it was easy to clean them and didn’t want them having any product on that might transfer onto the pedals...

Is there any point protecting rubber mats I would just rinse them off when dirty.
For my carpet mats I use Fabsil which is a waterproof spray on product so you could you use that on your mats if you wanted to.

As BrummyPete suggested. Adam's do a Rubber Mat and Liner Cleaner.
I've used it and it's very good. It cleans and restores them nicely.

Spray on and scrub with a brush and rinse off. If you can, hang the mats up so as to dry with no spots.

Here's a review Short1e did.

I have had rubber mats in both my Mk6 Fiesta, Actually really like it as they are easy to clean and quick vacuum with brush attachment removes all dirt.

The previous car, i cleaned them with APC and a brush. Rinse and allow to dry and then to make them look a bit better applied Autosmart Finish which is not to shiny or slippy/greasy.
