The Rug Cleaning Hack You'll Never Forget!

Most of us have had the unfortunate experience of spilling something on our rug, only to watch in horror as the stain sets in. Over time, these spills can build up, leaving our rugs looking dull and lifeless. However, there is an easy way to clean your rug and remove those tough stains. All you need is a few common household items to try this simple hack.

Social media has been awash this week with a rug cleaning hack that has delivered some amazing results.

Wondering what the secret is?

Shaving cream!

A bathroom staple, shaving cream is cheap and readily available – you don't need to purchase the expensive brands for this hack!

Before you get started, there are a couple of VERY important things to remember when it comes to cleaning your rug.

  • Always read the manufacturer's instructions before cleaning your rug – some fabrics require special care
  • Perform a small patch test before cleaning the whole rug

And if you have any questions about cleaning a rug you have purchased from us, please don't hesitate to contact us!
