Cleaner for Spray-In Bedliner

When I picked up my truck, I had the dealership install my Bakflip G2 tonneau cover. I am not sure what the hell the installers had on their boots when they did the install but my spray-in bedliner is now a mess.



I hit this with Armor All Car Wash and a soft-bristle tire brush and it did absolutely nothing. It looked fine when wet but once dry, this is what I am left with.

Any suggestions? Dawn dish soap maybe? Spray Nine all purpose cleaner? Simple Green? I do not want to damage the liner as I've only had the truck for 2 weeks.

Bring it back to the dealer and have them clean it!! They should have put cardboard down in the bed. If they can't clean it I would have them re-spray it or something since they were the ones that messed it up.

Pressure wash at an incline to let it run out the back, bedliner stands up to pressure washing fine.

I mean no offense and not to poke (because I've seen people fly off the handle at this before), but unless you intend to keep her a garage queen with zero bed use, your bed's going to get dirty and show its use eventually. It's a truck!

I guess that depends on how you are going to use your truck. For me, I have 2 trucks, a work truck that I don't care if it gets beat up or not, and the other is my baby that I treat like a "garage queen" like you described. If that were to happen to my nice truck I would have been upset too!

I would agree the culprits should return it to the condition they found it; you might try a generous dosage of the Mother's product called 'Back to Black' it has worked miracles in some stubborn applications .
If it is only two weeks old the liner may not have fully cured out yet - sometimes a healthy exposure to hot sunlight will hasten the process...

You'll put enough luggage or groceries in the garage queen eventually that it will show I promise you

Definitely lame that the dealer didn't take any effort to clean their mess, but I don't see any form of soft bristle brush providing the *umph* necessary to scour down into the textured bedliner to lift the dirt.

As a suggestion to preserve the garage queen status of shiny new looking bedliners, I'd recommend anyone to get a Dee-Zee or similar make bed mat to lay in the truck. Durable, easily removed, and keeps your stuff looking new

Thanks for your replies. I have not decided what to do yet. The dealer is an hour out and I am not sure that I want to put it back in their hands. I am thinking I will give it a short soak with Simple Green then park on my sloped driveway and hit it with my pressure washer. Fingers crossed.

If it's a Line-X Liner it certainly shouldn't absorb anything - Rhino Liners are a bit softer and can absorb a little over a long time...

I finally got this mess cleaned up and it looks great now.

I sprayed the liner with Spray Nine (biodegradable), scrubbed with a soft-bristled tire brush, rinsed clean with my pressure washer and let it air dry.
