How to Clean a Wool Rug?
With a wool rug, you have to be more careful of the hP level since it’s a natural fiber. The detergent you use should be between a 7-8 on the pH scale; this is what we call a neutral solution. It’s not alkaline, it’s not acidic, it’s right in the middle.
Wool is like your hair; it’s a protein just like your hair is. You would do the same thing for a wool rug that you would do for your hair. You wouldn’t be overly aggressive with the acidity or alkaline when washing your own hair, so be sure to use a gentle detergent when cleaning a wool rug.
