In order to keep your jute rug looking like new, there are some key jute rug cleaning instructions to follow and remember.

Maintenance is Key

Because excessive cleaning can damage the rug, a homeowner should do everything possible to ensure it remains clean. Vacuum both sides of the rug thoroughly, as well as the floor below the rug. Avoid placing the rugs in high maintenance areas. Place doormats behind all exterior doors of the home to prevent dirt from being tracked through the house and onto the rug.

Stain Removal

Some jute rug cleaning can be accomplished with carpet cleaner or a mild soap and water, but always test the cleaner in an inconspicuous spot to see how the rug will react. Clean out a stain with a sponge or soft-bristled brush, but do not scrub the stain! Here are some more tips for general grass rug care.

Dry Quickly

While cleaning your jute rug, you must work quickly. Dry the rug as quickly as possible when you are done cleaning. Because the rug must dry quickly, it's best to clean your jute rug on a sunny, breezy day. You can drape the rug over a clothesline or porch railing to dry. This step is one of the most important because excess moisture will cause the rug to deteriorate at a much faster rate.
