A simple guide to washing, storing, and caring for
sheepskin rugs and more!
| cleaning it |
Since sheepskin is a natural material, cleaning comes a bit easy. For small stains and specks, spot clean the mess using warm water and a soft cloth. Use sheepskin shampoo for the more stubborn stains and brush it out with a wire brush once it has dried.
For a deep clean, hand wash the rug (or machine wash on a gentle cycle) with cool water and mild detergent. Air dry the rug while avoiding any sort of direct heat.
With time, you may find that the fibers of the wool become coarse and clustered. It's only natural! To restore the original integrity of the rug, use a slicker wire brush to comb through.
To prevent the sheepskin from drying out, always opt to store the rug in a breathable bag, and keep it out of direct sunlight.
