Vintage Pink Rug

So happy to of found this at a flea market for under $20!
I vacuumed it well but am wondering how to clean a vintage rug like this?

think it goes well in the pink bedroom at 1515

So pretty Ann, and just lovely in that beautiful bedroom. What a great bedroom to stay in.

I would just use that spray foam shampoo, let it sit, vacuum and hang in the sun for a bit. That should do it (it actually looks pretty clean.)

Enjoy your weekend! :)

Hi Ann,
I have purchased old rugs many times (10) I vacuum them well, shake them well and then place them into a bath tub filled with cool water that I have added laundry detergent to and sometimes even a splash of bleach if I want to eliminate odors or stains. One rug I had to wash 5 times because it was full of dirt, but I knew it was a beauty underneath all that filth! Remember it is rug, meant to be stepped on by dirty feet....gentle soaking and thorough rinsing will give you a wonderful "new" rug.
Hope this helps!
Kind regards, Laura.
