Can I Use Baking Soda on An Oriental Rug?
You can shampoo an oriental rug, but you have to be aware of what material your rug is made out of. So if your rug is made out of polypropylene, for example, you can use a much harsher cleaner. However, if you have a wool rug, you could ruin it if the solution you’re using is too harsh.
Make sure to use a good detergent (like something you’d use for your clothes or in your dishwasher.) You don’t want any soap residue left behind.
