The most important rule to remember: never use chemicals and always vacuum with the grain.

Step-by-Step Tips for Cleaning a Spill

Madison Lily rugs are handmade with natural materials. Harsh over-the-counter chemicals and solvents should never be used to clean your rug.
  • STEP 1 - Clean and remove excess debris immediately before a stain can set in.
  • STEP 2 - Use a cotton cloth dampened with warm water or club soda to blot the affected area. Be gentle, as rubbing only works the stain deeper into the fibers.
  • STEP 3 - If the stain is being stubborn, then try adding a mild or natural soap to the water and repeat the previously described steps
  • STEP 4 - Once the stain is removed, use a dry clean white cloth to blot away any excess water.

Tips for Vacuuming

Always vacuum with the grain of your rug’s natural fibers and use the lowest, most gentle setting (often for hardwood floors). Make sure to vacuum unexposed parts of the rug which may live under a sofa or bed, to prevent potential moth damage. If you’re unsure whether a simple cleaning will do the trick, our team offers professional cleaning and rug restoration services.
