Question:

What is the best way to clean a polypropylene area rug?

Only rug like this I own, a hand off from a relative in a pattern I love, but it needed cleaning, so I bought a can of Resolve and followed the directions TO THE LETTER, practically sprained my back on it, and when it was dry and vacuumed within an inch of its life, it looked EXACTLY the way it did before I started. Complained to the company and they sent me coupons to buy more of the stuff I said didn't work -- why do they do that? Anyway, I have to pay to have my wool rugs professionally cleaned, but not this stuff, can anyone recommend the best way I can clean this, thank you in advance.

Answer:

The okorder.com/ ... You could also rent a carpet cleaner if you don't want to purchase one. Once you have a carpet cleaner in hand I would recommend starting with plain hot tap water and rinsing the carpet first. The spray on cleaner has left plenty of residue that needs to be removed before you try to add more cleaning solutions or stain removers. Other than that, follow the manufacturer's instructions on how to use the machine. If you don't want to make that investment, if you can roll the carpet up and take it outside, you can wash and scrub it in the driveway with a garden hose and carpet cleaning solution. Once you're done, you'll need to hang the carpet out of the sun to dry for a few days.
