How to spot clean your new Area Rugs

  1. Check the care label: The first step is to check the care label on your rug to see what type of cleaner is recommended. Some rugs can only be cleaned with a dry cleaner, while others can be spot cleaned with a mild solution of water and dish soap.
  2. Remove as much of the stain as possible: If the stain is fresh, you can try to remove as much of it as possible with a paper towel or a clean cloth. Blot the stain, don’t rub, as rubbing can spread the stain.
  3. Make a cleaning solution: If the stain is still visible, you can make a cleaning solution by mixing one part mild dish soap with two parts water. Test the solution in an inconspicuous area of the rug to make sure it doesn’t discolor the fibers.
  4. Apply the cleaning solution: Apply the cleaning solution to the stain with a clean cloth. Blot the stain, don’t rub.
  5. Rinse the area: Rinse the area with clean water. Blot the area dry with a clean cloth.
  6. Let the rug dry completely: Let the rug dry completely before using it again.

Here are some additional tips for spot cleaning machine made area rugs:

  • Use a white cloth: When blotting a stain, use a white cloth so that you don’t transfer any color from the cloth to the rug.
  • Don’t over-wet the rug: When applying the cleaning solution, be careful not to over-wet the rug. This can cause the fibers to shrink or felt.
  • Test the cleaning solution in an inconspicuous area: Before applying the cleaning solution to the stain, test it in an inconspicuous area of the rug to make sure it doesn’t discolor the fibers.
  • Let the rug dry completely: After spot cleaning the rug, let it dry completely before using it again. This will help to prevent the stain from spreading.

By following these steps, you can easily spot clean your machine made area rugs and keep them looking their best.
