Due to its manufacturing process, this polypropylene is an extremely comfortable and strong synthetic fiber that resists wear and permanent stains and is resistant to fading and deterioration from chemicals, moisture and mildew. Polypropylene can be easily cleaned.
With a dry cotton towel or white paper towel, blot out stain as much as possible.

We love to use our indoor/outdoor rugs throughout the home and beyond. Water resistant, fade resistant and stain resistant are qualities that make our indoor/outdoor rugs a perfect choice for foyers, kitchens, and all high traffic areas.
Today’s home extends beyond interior rooms, bringing fashion, form and function to outdoor living spaces. Dressing up patios, garden spaces, terraces, balconies, poolside gathering spots and backyard relaxation areas with durable, weather resistant rugs creates a beautifully stylish extension of your living space.
1. Use the handheld attachment to vacuum your rug. High powered vacuums can pull threads out of the back of tugs and cause sprouts.
2. Turn the beater bar off on your vacuum, or if it can not be turned off have it on the highest setting. Beater bar can pull fibers from the face of the rug or they can cause the face of your rug to fuzz
3. Carefully place your vacuum on the edge of the rug. The serging on the edges of rugs are very sensitive. Running the vacuum over the edges can cause the serging to deteriorate and fibers can come loose around the edges.
4. Use the handheld attachment to clean edges.
5. Brooms and sweepers are a great, gentle way to clean your rug. Canister vacuums without beater bars are the most effective.
No two rugs are the same. Slight color variations are common for handmade rugs, as dye lots may change over a period of time.
All wool rugs will shed. Shedding will subside over time, depending on traffic and wear. It typically takes 20-25 vacuums, at a minimum, to curtail shedding. Some will shed for the lifetime of the rug.
If your rug has been rolled or folded for shipping, it may include creases. Creases should disappear within a week or two when the rug is laid out flat. Reverse rolling the rug overnight will help.
Loose fibers, or sprouts, are a normal part of the break-in process of handmade rugs. To remove sprouts, use a small pair of scissors to snip them off even with the pile. Do not pull the fiber out, as this can cause a deterioration of the backing.
If exposed to direct sunlight, rug colors typically fade over time, even if they are fade resistant.
As a general rule, rugs of all materials and constructions should be rotated every 3-6 months to balance color and evenly distribute wear.
