Have you recently bought outdoor rugs online?
Here’s a short guide that will absolutely be helpful to you in the future.
While outdoor rugs are durable enough to withstand heavy amounts of foot traffic and filth over long periods of time, the time will eventually come when you’ll have to give them a break by giving them the proper care they need through cleaning.
After all, one of their primary duties is to catch dirt, mud, and other types of filth before they enter your home, so they really need to be cleaned in order for them to be able to keep on doing what they do best.
There’s more to cleaning your outdoor rug than by simply just sweeping and vacuuming them, because you’ll also have to practice other cleaning techniques if you want to remove the toughest stains – or if you don’t want its quality to degrade over time.
So, instead of doing it the unsafe way or hiring a professional cleaner, here’s a short guide on how to effectively remove the stains on your outdoor rug the natural way:
You’ll be needing the following materials: baking soda, white vinegar, and an eco-friendly dish soap.
First, spot clean the stains on your outdoor rug with the dish soap. Then, sprinkle a decent amount of baking soda and spray some white vinegar on the targeted areas. Afterwards, use an outdoor broom to thoroughly scrub the affected areas until there are no stains left.
This natural method of cleaning outdoor rugs is usually effective enough to solve your stain problems, but some stains are persistent and require more scrubbing than others.
If that’s the case, then all you’ll have to do is grab a hose, hose your outdoor rug and leave it to dry in the sunlight.
Take note that you should only do this method after you have conducted spot cleaning. In most cases, even the toughest stains will be bleached out by the sunlight using this technique, which means that your spotless outdoor rug will be good to go and ready to grace your exteriors again.
Also, it’s important to keep in mind that outdoor rugs are made of different materials, so consulting an expert or having them professionally cleaned is the way to go if you’re unsure about your outdoor rug.
The natural cleaning method that I shared to you is just a general, DIY way of removing stains on outdoor rugs, and it has worked wonderfully for me so far. In the end, it’s up to you whether you’ll have your outdoor rug cleaned by a professional or not, but there’s no denying that this technique works.
