Rugs & carpets
All vintage carpets are washed prior to shipment.
We suggest you place a non-stick pad underneath the rug to preserve the weave and keep it from sliding.
You will need a vacuum cleaner or a rubber broom for the dust and you can use a dry cleaning product (usually mousse) that you can find at your local supermarket.
You can use the same product for food/drink stains.
Deep cleaning - traditional
The method consists of washing down the whole rug with a hose, then brushing down the rug using washing detergent with a bristle brush.
And then rinsing it throughly with the hose.
For drying, the rug is rolled and laid on a chair outdoor, under maximum sun. This will allow it to drip. It will take at least 3 days to dry. This method is traditionally used once a year.
Deep cleaning - modern
A more easier and modern style cleaning process is renting a steam cleaner which will clean your rug throughly.
The simplest way would be to bring it to a specialized rug dry cleaner.
Pillows & poufs
All vintage pillows and poufs are washed prior to shipment.
As pillows and poufs are made out of rugs fabrics, you can use similar cleaning methods as described under the rug section.
More adapted to their size, use dry cleaning for a better result.
