How To Wash A Beni Ourain Rug

The washing process for a Beni Ourain rug is similar to that of a wool Berber rug. These rugs are made from natural wool and should be cleaned by a professional cleaner, who has specialized equipment and knowledge of how to clean wool rugs without damaging them.

Here are the steps that a professional cleaner would take to clean a Beni Ourain rug:

  1. Vacuum the rug thoroughly to remove any loose dirt or debris.

  2. Test a small, inconspicuous area of the rug to ensure that the cleaning solution and method won't cause any damage.

  3. If necessary, gently hand wash the rug with a mild detergent, or use a specialized wool-safe cleaning solution.

  4. Rinse the rug thoroughly with cool water to remove any remaining soap.

  5. Use a clean, damp cloth to blot the rug dry.

  6. Allow the rug to air dry completely in a well-ventilated area, away from direct sunlight or heat sources.

It's important to note that Beni Ourain rugs should not be cleaned with harsh chemicals or exposed to excessive moisture, as this can damage the natural fibers and cause shrinkage or discoloration.
