Caring for your Berber rug
For stubborn stains, use sparkling water and rub gently with a clean sponge. Leave for 30 minutes or so, then sprinkle the stains with baking soda and, when the powder is completely dry, vacuum up. Baking soda is a good natural product for cleaning wool carpets, so don't hesitate to use this method for stubborn stains.
As a last resort, if the stain is heavily colored, such as coffee, chocolate, wine or curry, Vanish or carpet spray will work! (But not eco-friendly). Avoid detergents.
Dry well underneath, using a hair dryer if necessary!
Your terrace or balcony is ideal.
The rug must be completely dry before it can be placed in your home.
A badly dried wool carpet could quickly become a moth's nest and give off a bad smell.
From time to time, if you can't beat or shake your carpet, it's a good idea to turn it over for a few days to air it out and shake off any residual dust.
And in summer, if you can expose it to the sun once in a while, it'll do it a world of good!
