Removing a Stain from a Moroccan Rug

 


As any owner of a beautiful hand knotted rug knows, spills and stains are an inevitable part of having these beautiful pieces be the foundation of our home spaces.  If you ever have an unfortunate spill, we recommend blotting the excess liquid immediately.  Please take care to blot.  Do not rub as that may cause color run.  Then take a damp (not wet) white towel and natural soap and carefully try to remove any stain.  Be careful not to rub too hard or across colors.  Also be sure that the cloth is damp, not wet.  If you can not remove a stain, a professional cleaning may remove the stain.  If the stain has been left to sit, or if it is a stain of red wine or other difficult stain, a separate more in depth cleaning process may be necessary.  In the worst instances, if the stain is very prominent and a cleaning can not eliminate it, you can reweave that area.  But in most instances, a cleaning can greatly reduce the appearance of nearly all stains.  Even if  small evidence remains, it shouldn't detract from the beauty of a handmade piece.  --www.traditionalrugrepair.com
