I would say a rag with soaked in simple green is your best bet at cleaning the underhood mat. personally I would just get rid of it, holds heat in the engine bay and every oz. saved is more speed

I wouldn't try to clean it at all. It likes to fall apart.

The liners are fragile. I'd spray it with simple green, let it soak, then rinse off with low-pressure (non-nozzle) water. Do this a couple times.

Ultimately, I resorted to re-covering mine instead. A couple different times with different materials.
