Our carpets are all made from natural wool. Taking the right care of your carpet will keep it in good condition and ensure that it can be enjoyed for many years. Here are some care instructions:
1. Fresh stains
Clean fresh stains with mineral water before you try anything else. Dab the water on the stain and leave it for a little while. Dry with a clean tea towel. If this does not work, clean the stain with a mild window-cleaning detergent.
2. General cleaning
If you want to clean the carpet, put a bit of glycerin on it before using the carpet-cleaning detergent. This helps remove stains.
3. Fresh colour
To refresh the colour or keep it from fading, use vinegar water (10 parts water, 1 part vinegar). This is also suitable for smaller carpets.
4. Persistent stains
Shaving foam can be very effective. Spray it on, leave it to soak in, and then rinse it off.
Alternatively, you can treat stains with natron/baking soda. Mix the powder with a little water until you get a thick paste, then apply it to the stains. Leave to dry and then brush it off.
5. Furniture marks
Furniture marks can be treated with steam. Hold an iron just above the mark and put it on the steam function. Take care that the iron does not touch the carpet.
6. Brighten whites
Wet salt can help brighten white wool. If you have a white carpet and you would like to refresh it, sprinkle some wet salt on top. Leave for an hour or so and then remove the salt with the vacuum cleaner.
7. Removing dust
You can beat the carpet to remove dust. Always beat it from the back.
8. Using snow
If you have deep snow outside, you can clean the carpet by putting it face down in the snow and beating it a little. The snow will absorb the dirt.
9. Pet hair
Use a mop or rubber broom to remove pet hair. This works better than a vacuum cleaner.
10. Chewing gum
To remove chewing gum, freeze it with ice cubes or an ice spray. The chewing gum should go crumbly and can then be scraped off.
11. Red wine
Fresh red wine stains can be removed with salt. Sprinkle salt on the fresh stain and then vacuum it off later
