First of all, we recommend a complete annual cleaning for any non-washable carpet.
For the latter, you have two options:
-First, you can entrust this mission to a carpet professional.
-Second, you can dry wash your carpet using a cleaning powder or foam. We recommend the Terre de Sommières that you can sprinkle and then leave to act for several hours or even a day (and finally aspirate)!
These two options apply to your carpets in jute, cotton, wool and sheepskin.
However, if you have a carpet in polypropylene with short wicks (<30mm), you have a third option:
You can clean it yourself using a brush and soapy water. Scrub the entire surface of the carpet and then dry it. With the polypropylene material, no need to worry about possible deformation of the carpet during drying!
Let's go for the spring cleaning!

General care instructions for Sheepskin, Jute, Wool and Cotton rugs:
Shake your carpet regularly to remove dust and other dry particles from the carpet. We recommend this first option but if you want to use a vacuum cleaner, be sure to remove the brush and always set it to low power, avoiding back and forth; this will allow you to preserve your carpet in its best condition. Your lungs and those of your children will be particularly grateful to you for these gestures!
In addition, if a thread is sticking out, be careful not to pull on it as this could damage the carpet, but opt for a small cut with the scissors instead!

Machine Care Washable Cotton Mat
First, refer to the “composition” characteristic which will allow you to know the washing machine capacity required to clean the carpet.
Wash your carpet separately at 30 ° maximum using a short cycle (maximum 30 minutes) delicate and a mild soap.
We recommend a gentle spin, especially if the rug has fringes or braids.
Here are some things NOT to do :
Do not leave it wet in the machine; its colors might bleed.
Be careful not to use bleach or fabric softener, this could damage your carpet.
Do not put your rug in the dryer and do not expose it to direct sunlight, this could damage its color.
Also, do not dry clean it.
Finally, avoid washing too regularly so as not to damage the material!
Also, don't worry, the breaking out (loss) of material at the start of use is not a fault, it will gradually decrease!
Jute rug tips:
Your carpet is made of a natural material that does not absorb immediately, so when liquid is accidentally spilled on it you have a short reaction time! The first thing to do is to mop up the liquid. Subsequently, to clean a possible liquid or other stain, you just need to take a brush or a clean cloth and scrub with soapy water to clean it. Be careful, for the brush, take care that it is not hard, this could damage the pile of the carpet. Also, be careful not to rub too hard as you risk damaging your carpet by fraying the fibers. To be on the safe side, you can dry the water you just applied with a hair dryer to prevent any moisture that could degrade your carpet.
If some solid residue remains on your carpet, remove it with a knife blade and brush the affected area. You can finish with a little vacuuming for a flawless result.
PS: Be careful, the material of this rug does not tolerate humidity! Do not clean it with wet shampoo or steam cleaner.

Occasionally degrease with white vinegar
Like soapy water, white vinegar loosens carpet but more effectively. This method cleans a very dirty and greasy carpet. In addition, white vinegar does not attack the material and is therefore suitable for all models. To degrease your carpet, you will need the same items as for cleaning with soapy water. That is: bucket, water, sponge, white vinegar and liquid soap. Soak the sponge in the mixture of lukewarm water, white vinegar and liquid soap. Then clean your carpet, giving more time to stains. Then rinse with a damp cloth in clean water and let dry. To restore color to a dull carpet, dampen the tea towel with sparkling water instead of clean water.
