In this article, we’ll show you how to clean small, cotton area rugs.
1 Wash colorfast rugs by hand in the kitchen sink with a mild detergent, using a sponge or soft brush.
2 Rinse thoroughly with water mixed with a small amount of white vinegar to remove any remaining residue. The vinegar also serves to naturally and gently sanitize.
3 Roll the rug inside a thick towel to wick away moisture, then stand on it remove as much liquid as you can.
4 Hang the rug (outside, if possible) so it dries as quickly as possible, thus avoiding nasty stale water smells.
