Wool rugs are also durable, long-lasting, soil-repellent, and fire-retardant?but even the most careful person will get a stain now and then.?
Here are some tips for removing them from wool carpet.
Avoid those ?good-for-all-floors? cleaners
All fibers are different. Wool needs gentle, non-alkaline cleaners, and be sure any commercial ones are wool-specific.
You can also make your own. A good formula is ? cup of white vinegar to two cups of warm water with a little sprinkle of baking soda; it combines with the white wine vinegar to bubble and lifts stains.
Some additional tips
- Vacuum this carpet installation with care. Removing dust, dirt, and other particles is necessary, but adjust the settings so the bristles are soft.
Since this carpeting is so long-lasting, it's common to see vintage or antique rugs. If so, you should only vacuum once every two weeks.
- Blot, don't wipe or scrub. Instead, use a clean white cloth (preferably microfiber).
- Never use alkaline cleaners. Also, don't use anything more substantial than white vinegar.??
- Know that soil repellent doesn't mean non-absorbent. Soil repellency means the carpet doesn't attract dirt; you may not have to vacuum as often as you would others.
