Rug Cleaning Tips

Scrub a Rug Clean With Cardinal Directions

North by Northwest isn't just a Hitchcock film; it's also a great way to remember how to scrub your rug. Confused? Here's a little tip. If you're dealing with a stubborn stain on a rug, don't scrub harder; scrub smarter by thinking like a compass.

We all live with people, pets, and things we love that can spell trouble for our favorite rugs. Whether it's a kiddo, a dog, or a glass of red wine, there are dangers lurking. So, if you have a spill that's in need of cleaning, try gently rubbing a cloth over the stain by using the cardinal directions: go from northeast to southwest and northwest to southeast. Rubbing gently from a variety of directions will help to lift the spill without stressing the rug's fibers.
