A while ago I purchased a vintage sheepskin rug for my living room. (You can see it on our Apartment Therapy tour. It really ties the room together, no?)
The problem is, my dog loves to camp out on it all day. She favors the sheepskin to her own comfortable, cozy dog bed. (My cats, however, avoid it like it’s a carcass. I guess it is.) So after about eight months of wear, the rug is looking a little dirty.
I regularly shake it out outside, use carpet deodorizer and baking soda on it, and occassional “comb” it with a fine tooth brush in order ot make it new. But I don’t want to shampoo or wash it unless I know it won’t ruin it. I’d almost rather take it to a dry cleaner than do it myself — but do dry cleaners do that kind of thing?
Can anyone suggest cleaning solutions for a sheepskin rug? Help!
