Over the winter I got some muddy water on the fender liners of my Evora. Unfortunately they seem to be a felt-type material, so I'm not really sure how to clean them.

The mud is pretty caked on there, any ideas?

Spraying it with water should clean it...

After leaving the water to soak in a light brushing with a brush will do the trick, alternatively a pressure washer used carefully. I use my 1400 psi pressure washer with the spray adjusted to a wide fan

I hope it's not real felt, but where a normal car would have plastic, this is a fabric or fabric like material. I never paid much attention until it got dirty. I'm guessing it's lighter than plastic.

I'm worried soaking it with water is a bad idea, but who would build a car with fender liners than get ruined by water?

It's heavier than some plastic liners I have plus seems that it will get heavy when wet.

My BMW has the same liner material on the rear wheels as my Lotus. Water is not a problem, it does soak into the material but drains off when standing. No different to driving in the rain!
