Caring for Your Sheepskin Rug: A Comprehensive Guide

Hello, Rug Love readers! Today, we're going to delve into the world of sheepskin rugs. Their sumptuous texture and natural warmth make these rugs a favourite in many homes. However, they do require a bit of extra care to keep them looking plush and feeling soft for years to come. Here's our complete guide on how to maintain your sheepskin rug.

Genuine Sheepskin Adobe Rose Rug

Regular Maintenance

1. Shake It Out: The simplest way to keep your sheepskin rug clean is by shaking it out regularly. This helps remove dust and small particles that could damage the rug fibres. Do this at least once a week, and more frequently if it's in a high-traffic area.

2. Air It Out: To refresh your rug, hang it outdoors on a sunny, non-humid day. The fresh air can help eliminate odours, and UV light from the sun is a natural antibacterial agent.

3. Brush It: Sheepskin rugs can become matted over time. To prevent this, use a wide-toothed comb or a brush specifically designed for sheepskin. Brush the rug while it's still damp after cleaning, and periodically, when it's dry.

Spot Cleaning

1. Soak Up Spills: If a spill occurs, quickly blot it up with a clean, dry cloth. Do not rub, as this can force the liquid deeper into the rug.

2. Use Sheepskin-Friendly Detergent: For stubborn stains, use a damp cloth and a small amount of sheepskin-friendly detergent. Gently work the detergent into the rug, then rinse with a cloth dipped in clean water.

3. Air Dry: Never use heat to dry your sheepskin rug as it can cause shrinkage and hardening of the fibers. Instead, lay it flat or hang it to dry naturally, away from direct sunlight and heat sources.

Deep Cleaning

If your sheepskin rug needs a deep clean, it's best to have it professionally cleaned. However, if you'd like to do it yourself, here's a safe method:

1. Hand Wash: Fill a tub with cool or lukewarm water and a mild, enzyme-free wool detergent. Immerse the rug and gently agitate the water with your hands. Let it soak for up to 10 minutes.

2. Rinse Thoroughly: Drain the soapy water and rinse the rug multiple times in clean, cool water until all soap residue is gone.

3. Squeeze Out Excess Water: Do not wring the rug. Instead, roll it up and press to get rid of excess water. You can also use a towel to blot more water.

4. Air Dry: As with spot cleaning, lay the rug flat or hang it to dry naturally. Brush the rug while it's still damp and again once it's dry to fluff up the fibres.

Remember, sheepskin is a natural material, and the less we interfere with harsh chemicals, heat, and rough handling, the longer it will last and maintain its beauty. With these tips, we hope you'll find caring for your sheepskin rug a breeze and continue to enjoy its luxurious comfort for years to come!
