Our carpets are an investment, and it goes without saying that we want them to last for as long as possible. This can be tricky though, especially in high-traffic areas such as our living rooms and hallways. With so much footfall every day (often including the muddy shoes of little ones!) your carpets are hiding deep down dirt that vacuuming alone cannot remove.

 

But don’t worry, cleaning a dirty carpet is easy – especially when you’ve got Vanish Carpet & Upholstery Vacuum Up Foam or Vanish Oxi Action Carpet & Upholstery Vacuum Up Powder to hand, as it removes five times more dirt than vacuuming alone*! Read on to find out how you can clean your carpet at home, and you’ll be enjoying professional-feeling results in no time!

How to clean a rug

How you clean your rug will depend on what it’s made of. To clean a rug made from carpet-like material simply use Vanish Carpet & Upholstery Gold Powder in exactly the same way as you would with a normal carpet!

 

If your rug is made of another, more delicate material, such as brocade or velvet, you’ll need to act more carefully. Start by hoovering the rug on both sides to get rid of dust and debris, then spot clean the rug using a mild mixture of soapy water.
