Easy Solutions for Spills and Stains

At Milagro Collective, we're not just passionate about creating exquisite hand-knotted rugs; we're also experts in their care. We understand that spills and accidents are part of everyday life. Whether it's muddy paw prints, a dropped dinner, or a tipped-over glass, we've got you covered with simple yet effective solutions for your natural-fiber rugs.

Modern Oushak:
When spills occur, avoid over-saturating your Oushak rug with water. Instead, promptly blot the area with a clean white kitchen towel, working from the stain's edges towards the center. This method helps prevent spreading. We advise using white towels to prevent color transfer from the towel to our vegetable dye-dyed rugs.

For mild stains, a combination of water and mild foaming hand soap (like Whole Foods 365 brand) can be effective. Apply the mixture with a white towel, and blot until the stain fades. For solid spills, use a spoon to remove debris before treating the area. Persistent stains might require a paste of baking soda and water. Spread this paste over the stain, let it penetrate, and then rinse with a clean, damp towel.

Pet Accidents:
We understand that pets are part of the family, but they can be messy! For urine stains, blot as much liquid as possible, then use a mixture of white vinegar and water to tackle any lingering odors. For more stubborn smells, a baking powder and water paste can be applied overnight.

Challenging Spills:
Red wine and dark liquids are the bane of rug owners, but don't panic. Cover the spill with salt to absorb the liquid, then lift it off with a spoon. Blot the area with cold water and white towels. If needed, a white cloth soaked in club soda can help neutralize and lift the spill.

Regular Rug Care:
To maintain the beauty and longevity of your Milagro rug, we recommend regular vacuuming (beater bar off) and occasional flipping to avoid uneven wear. Our non-slip rug pad adds comfort and stability, further protecting your investment.

Specific Stains or Questions:
If you're facing a tough stain or need personalized advice, the Milagro Collective team is always here to help. We pride ourselves on providing not just beautiful rugs, but also the knowledge to keep them looking their best.

Jute Rug Care:
Our jute rugs are not only beautiful but also trap dust, making them great for low-allergy environments. For stains, blot immediately with wet paper towels or a clean white towel. For tougher stains, a solution of equal parts water and white vinegar can be effective.

Cowhide Rug Care:
For cowhide rugs, shake off dust outdoors and blot spills dry immediately. Use a soft brush for dry stains. Avoid water and direct sunlight to maintain the rug's natural beauty and durability. For creases, flatten with a heavy object temporarily. Simple care keeps your cowhide rug in top condition.

Remember, a Milagro rug is designed to endure the challenges of real life, making them a perfect addition to homes with pets and children.
