If it’s really dirty, mix a solution of soap and water in a bucket to get rid of dirt. Then, scrub the rug using a large nylon brush.

5. Use Sunlight


To ensure that your area rug stays free of mold growth after washing, hang the rug over a railing in direct sunlight. The size of the rug and surrounding humidity will affect how long it takes to dry.
