    I have a ‘19 TRD off road with the fabric door panels and leather seats. Dog has been riding in the back and has put mud into the door panel material.

    Anyone have cleaning tips/tricks??

    Isn't that more like a rubber material? That's what I'm under the impression it is... I use some cleaner wipes to wipe them down.

    I am not sure if it is rubber or some form of fabric. Just wanted to see if anyone had any experience with cleaning the door interiors.

    For general cleaning of the vinyl/leather/rubber material (such as the door panels, you mention) I use the below for all my vehicles it works GREAT and even leaves a very pleasing smell. I owned a chain of auto parts stores for years so I have used/tested MANY automotive cleaning products over the years. When ever in doubt use Meguiar's products.

    For fabric/carpet etc, I use the below, it's GREAT. The only fabric/carpet cleaner I've ever used that will remove black axle grease from light color carpet.

    Yeah. Take it to a professional detailer. $150.00 here in southeastern Illinois will take you all the way. :)

    Then haul the dog in the bed of the truck from now on. :thumbsup:

    Ha...I came here today looking for the same answers. Have been off roading for a week with the windows open and dog hanging out in the back seat. Great tips here! That vinyl/rubber waffle pattern on the doors and over the glove compartment is an s.o.b.!

    I used a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser and some water and it got make up from a lady friend off the panel when nothing else worked for me.

    Ok...yes...I've always got a few of those laying around. The blue shop paper towels weren't getting down into the waffle.
