***Please be advised that we always recommend professional rug cleaning, and any cleaning techniques listed below are only suggestions***


Spills: Use a clean cloth and hold firmly immediately after the spill to absorb as much of the liquid as you can. Do not rub the stain deeper into the material, as this will cause the spill to spread out even more and make it more difficult to remove the stain. 


Stains: If the time has passed since the stain appeared, make a mixture of room temperature water, a mild detergent, and white vinegar and apply the foam at the top of the mix with a clean rag. Let it sit for 20 minutes and remove with a wet rag. 


Pet Stains:

  1. Absorb as much of the affected area you can with a paper towel, then apply a light coat of baking soda over the stain.
  2. Wait 10 minutes, then apply a layer of pet stain remover (read directions on the pet solution before applying) and lightly scrub until you see the stain begin to disappear.
  3. Let it sit another 10-20 minutes and vacuum up the remaining substance.
