White floor rugs look expensive and bring a sense of wealth to a home. They also lighten a space and allow it to feel airy or sophisticated. White rugs go with almost everything. With so many styling options, these floor coverings are the most versatile rugs.
White rugs make any room look sophisticated. They are often seen in bedrooms, bathrooms, guestrooms, and home offices, but they also look great in living rooms or laundry rooms. Plush white rugs are best for bedrooms, whereas flat weaves would be better for a living room. We recommend avoiding using a white rug in high traffic or messy areas such as a kitchen, dining room, entryway, or kid's room.
Maintaining a white rug is essential to keeping it clean, so here are the best tips for maintaining your rug to keep it in pristine condition. Don't worry, we will tell you how to clean it too. A white rug must be taken outside and given a good shaking every so often. You can hold the rug's corners firmly while shaking it to remove all dirt, debris, and crumbs. If the rug is too large to shake by yourself, you can also hang the rug over a fence or railing and hit it with a broomstick to remove excess debris. It's also crucial you regularly vacuum your white rug. Start with the back of the rug to loosen any dirt or debris from the front of the rug. Neutralizing orders is also important. Baking soda is an excellent natural odour absorber. Sprinkle baking soda on the rug and let it sit for a few hours or overnight, then vacuum.
Rugs live underfoot, so it's impossible to avoid getting your rug dirty, but there are simple steps you can follow to get your rug white again. The first step to cleaning a white rug is removing any excess dirt and debris. So, you'll want to shake the rug outside and then vacuum the rug. If the rug is too large to be washed in a machine, you can deep clean the entire rug by mixing water and detergent and using a sponge to scrub the rug. Start at the corner and work in a grid pattern. You'll want to clean the sponge frequently during this process. Once you've scrubbed the entire rug, go over it again with clean water to ensure all the detergent is removed. Allow the rug to dry before putting it back in space.
When it comes to spills, you'll want to act fast and prepare a plan of action. A vinegar solution or clothing detergent, without bleach, works well when mixed with water. You can spray the mixture on the stain with a spray bottle and use a sponge to blot the stain away. Baking soda is another great option. Spread dry baking soda over the stain, then use a spray bottle to moisten the baking soda. Let it sit for a few hours, and then run and rinse the paste away. Wait for it to dry entirely before vacuuming.
