How to clean the carpet on the drivers side

How do you guys clean the drivers side carpet? I vacuumed it but it doesn't look clean specially where the pedals are.
Mods please move the thread if you think it doesn't belong here!

Get some suds going with a scrub brush and go to town. I've found this works best for me to get out the fine dust and grime. Works great with a shop vac if you let the carpet soak a bit.

Think of a carpet at home. If something's been walked on for months, you won't get it clean with a simple vacuum. Gotta scrub it a couple times and the suds will help the vac suck the crap out.

I just did this to my 02 wrx and managed to get the the 13yr old carpet clean. Took a couple rounds of lather, rinse, repeat.

I typically use my steamer or on really tough stains I use some fabric clean, stiff bristled brush and a hot water extractor.

I just use a Bissell carpet cleaner. Hose it down, suck out the grimy water, and it looks like new.
