Besides buying those expensive car mats with the inverted edges, how do you all keep your vehicles carpet dry in the winter?

I have all-season mats from Costco in each of my cars. They fit fine and keep the factory mats and underlying carpet nice n'clean.

I buy the winter mats and when it gets too full with snow melt I lay a newspaper on it to soak up the water. When it gets saturated you slop into the recycle bin.

I have the husky liners in my Jeep. Since they are diamond plated, I feel more manly.

Walmart has a huge selection of winter mats with deep inserts for holding water.. Anywhere between $15-$30. Pick your poison.

*A friend and I went to a junkyard and got carpeted mats for his car. $1 each and looked great.

Weathertech in the Audi. Honda OEM all weather mats in the Ody. You're never going to keep your carpets dry unless you use a good rubber mat.

Winter mats for $20 or Weathertech for a lot more.

My F150 came with both carpet mats and rubber mats. I just installed the rubber mats, they work well enough. The carpet ones are in a closet somewhere, still in their plastic coverings.

I've installed some custom-fit ones from Hexomat; they look like what skyactiv posted above. I deal more with water and mud here (lots of mud), so these should hold the rain, and being tan they won't show the dirt as easily as black.

Along with the water, there is salt that is getting under your OEM carpet.

You don't say what your vehicle is.

Rugged Ridge are about 1/2 the price of Weathertec and many Jeepers think that Rugged Ridge are better. Many complain about the Husky liners being thin and that they warp over time.

Check out Rugged Ridge on Amazon if they have ones that fit your vehicle.

That is a very good point.

I try to do a really good job of knocking all the snow from my shoes, and I use a cheap clear mat to protect the carpet mat.

Well you either spend $10 on some rubber ones at the car wash that kind of fit and work, or you spend $100 on a set of Weathertech's that actually fit and work well.

I have done it both ways.
