Mine are grey and getting dirty. I thought of simply trying soap and water, but thought I would ask you guys first. Thanks

I used a spray carpet cleaner that came with a scrubber on it. Spray it lightly and scrub lightly. It helped, but still a little bit of stain on it. Got out about 90% of the dirty water looking stain. Best I could think of. Best if you could do that with the panel off of the door so you don't spray your speakers.

i ran a steam cleaner quickly over mine and that did the trick nicely.
just make sure you dont play music for a while after in case you get the speakers wet so that they have a chance to dry.
or, just pull off the door panel, it only takes a minute or two.

I planned on taking it out so I could get the front and back, and do a better job. My speakers are shot anyway, and sometime in the next 10 years will be replaced when I can find the extra money...lol

I used a fabric spray paint to re-paint them. I did not even take them off the doors. I just carefully masked the area with masking tape, including the area surrounding the cover to protect from overspray, and they came out looking like new.

GREAT idea!

I also spray painted the faded rear deck covering thats under the rear window covering the subwoofer, and the third brake light cover with the fabric paint.
Actually, if I do it again I will probably just take off the door covers, (they are easy to remove).

That is a good idea, didn't know there was such a thing out there. Might have to look into that. Not sure how well it would work on the back deck area though, be sure to post if you try it.

I did the back deck last year at the same time I did the speaker covers.

Still looks great.
