A Comprehensive Guide to Rug Care: Say Goodbye to Stains

| Team Tumble

With daily use, spills and stains are inevitable, especially in high-traffic areas. At Tumble, we understand the challenges of keeping rugs looking fresh and clean. That's why we've compiled this comprehensive guide to rug care, focusing on stain removal and the benefits of our stain-resistant rugs.

Understanding Common Rug Stains

Coffee, Wine, and Beverages: These spills are notorious for leaving lasting marks. The key is immediate action. Blot the stain gently with a dry cloth to absorb as much liquid as possible. Avoid rubbing, as this can push the liquid deeper into the rug fibers. Follow up with a solution of water and mild detergent, applying it sparingly. Blot again until the stain lifts.

Pet Stains: A common challenge for pet owners, these can be particularly tricky due to their odor and color. Start by removing any solid residue. Then, clean the area with a mixture of water and white vinegar, which neutralizes odors and works against the stain. For stubborn stains, a pet stain remover specifically designed for rugs may be necessary.

Mud and Dirt: Allow the mud to dry completely. Vacuum the area to remove loose soil. Use a mild detergent solution to treat any remaining marks, and blot dry.

Advanced Removal Techniques

Oil and Grease Stains: Apply a liberal amount of baking soda to absorb the grease. After letting it sit, vacuum up the baking soda. Treat any remaining stain with a dry-cleaning solvent, using a clean cloth to blot.

Ink and Paint Stains: These require immediate attention. For ink, dabbing the area with isopropyl alcohol can be effective. For paint, if it's water-based, warm water and detergent should do the trick. For oil-based paints, you might need a specialized cleaner.

Gum and Wax: Freeze the gum or wax with ice, then gently scrape it off with a blunt knife. Clean any residue with a solvent like rubbing alcohol.

Special Care for White Rugs

White rugs demand extra vigilance. Regular vacuuming is vital to prevent dirt from settling. For liquid spills, a solution of hydrogen peroxide and dish soap can be effective, especially for organic stains like wine or coffee. Test any cleaning solution on a small, inconspicuous area first to ensure it doesn't damage the rug.
