  1. Tip for cleaning a fluffy rug/carpet

    Tip, rather than using carpet cleaner and scrubbing your time away. Simply take the rug outside and lightly spray with carpet cleaner, then spray down with a high pressure cleaner or strong hose and leave to dry. You will find your rug/carpet is not only clean but smells fresh and feels soft. sure you will shorten its life a little, but its better than putting up with a smelly worn looking rug that looks old anyway.
