How To Clean Your Leather Rug

A rug is a good addition to your home interior but keeping
it clean can be a bit tricky particularly if you have kids
or pets at home.Ash Coloured with Black Brushstrokes Patchwork Rug

When you only have to remove dust and other solid
particles on the rug, you have two options. One is using a
vacuum cleaner with a soft-bristle brush attached at the
end. Gently vaccum the rug by going with the grain of
hair. Dont go against them. Another way is by using the
conventional way of carrying your rug outside and gently
shake loose any dust that has collected. It is better to
get the help of another person if the rug is too heavy. By
shaking the rug, you’re giving it the chance to breathe.

When your leather rug has been spilled accidentally, all
you have to do is take a damp cloth and a squirt of mild
soap on your cloth and gently stroke following the grain
of hair and not against it. Once the spill is cleaned,
rinse the cloth then go over the spill several times until
all the soap is removed. Air dry the affected area by
placing books or other objects underneath.

Lastly, apply a leather conditioner to keep the fabric
supple and restore its luster.

It is important to remember to never dry clean your leather
rug particularly if its made out of cowhide. Keep the rug
out of direct sunlight. And do not use harsh chemicals,
only natural soap.
