I love oriental rugs. They are so vibrant and come in such beautiful patterns.
Being a bargain hunter extraordinaire – it has taken me some time to find the perfect rug, but it was worth it because these rugs are not just beautiful, they are built to last.
So now I’m the proud owner of three antique, hand-woven rugs; one made in China, one in India and another from Iran. I also have 2 smaller machine-made area rugs that are just as beautiful.
The dirty truth is that I may know how to clean, but I’m not perfect and I have slacked off when it comes to keeping a regular cleaning schedule.
Dirt can cause real problems with these rugs – The delicate fabric, the beautiful dyes and the heirloom quality should last for years and years – and they will, but only if they are properly cared for.
The good news is that it’s not very complicated to clean these rugs. There are just a few things that you need to know.
