The living room is dominated by this big handmade rug. It is similar to the toothbrush rugs I make, but this one is crocheted and is very thick. It is circular and measures about 7’ across.
When we arrived, we noticed a big stain on the rug. Looks like someone spilled a cup of coffee on it. I decided our cabin improvement project would be removing the stain.
We hauled it out onto the wood deck, a great place to clean a rug in the summer. First we shook it. Then I got some detergent and scrubbed the stains. Then we took water and doused the entire rug to freshen it up and remove the soap..
Being so large – and in a canyon with limited sunlight - it took several days to dry.
