Reviving the colours of an old rug PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 07 January 2011
I was recently given this tip by someone who had bought an old rug off a website where they sell secondhand stuff and I tried it on one of my faded old rugs and it worked like a charm.

First vacuum and make sure the rug is free of dust, sand, etc.  Then take a sponge and apply a solution of one part of white vinegar to three parts of boiling water.

Try to dampen only the pile and not soak the rug right through to the backing. When the rug is dry, rub it lightly with fine bread crumbs and then vacuum.  Et voila - your rug is refreshed!
