Oriental Rug Cleaning

There are {times|instances} when the old-fashioned {way|means} of doing things outshines any new or modern convenience, and the best way to {clean|wash} a woolen Oriental rug {is|would be} to do it as {it’s|it has} been {done|achieved} through the centuries – by hand.

If your {rug|carpet} is small enough to lift, and {you have|you’ve got} a patio or {driveway|drive} and a {hose,|hose, then} pull {on|in} your wellies and get to work.
