When was the last time you cleaned your rugs? Don’t say never! Though it’s often a chore that we forget about, cleaning and deodorizing the rugs is equally as important as keeping our floors and surfaces clean. We spend far too much time lying on our rugs, sweating and leaving behind other unsightly things for it not to be cleaned periodically! Below are a few tips on cleaning your rugs and keeping it that way.
If you have pets, or you like to have your midnight snacks in bed, you’ve likely caused a stain or two, but don’t fret! They can easily be removed. Just make sure to find a specially formulated cleaner to remove stains from the rugs.
Eradicating Dust, Dander, Etc
The easiest way to remove dust and debris from your rugs is to use the upholstery attachment on your vacuum cleaner. Press down firmly to reach and release dust mites that are lurking beneath the surface. You can even use the attachment to dust the fringe, as well! A thorough job is a job well done.
To deodorize your rugs, you may consider spraying its surface with Lysol to kill germs and bacteria. You can also sprinkle it with a mixture of baking soda and essential oil, like lavender (lavender has a soothing effect, smells wonderful, and helps you fall asleep).
