Home tips: How to care for your rug to keep it looking new

Keep your rug fab not drab with these handy care tips:

1. Leave dirt at the door

Before they enter, make sure family members and guests wipe their feet after removing their shoes at the main door, so that dirt doesn’t accumulate on your precious rug!
 

2. Blot, not rub

Trying to remove a stain by rubbing it can cause it to set permanently. Instead, use a kitchen towel or roll, blotting from the outside in, to soak up any spills. You can also dab with a warm water-soaked sponge.
 

3. Rotation duty

Every six months, carefully rotate your carpet 180 degrees to prevent areas with heavy foot traffic from wearing down.
