  • Care Instruction

    Want to rejuvenate your rug and give it a new lease of life? Sometimes a light clean doesn’t do the job, so a deep clean is in order. Where do you start? Don’t worry, take a look below for a guide on how to help you get your rug flourishing again no matter what room it’s in.

    • Shake or vacuum your rug to remove as much dust and debris as possible.
    • Find a suitable carpet shampoo for your style of rug and follow the manufacturer’s instructions. We always recommend testing a small patch of the rug first. Mix up the solution and apply to an inconspicuous area. Allow it to work and check for any discolouration. If you’re happy, apply to the whole rug.
    • It’s often easier to clean a rug outside, but if the weather isn’t on your side, you can always do this in the bathtub to avoid mess and any possible dye transfer to your carpets/flooring.
    • Allow it to fully dry outside or in a well-ventilated room.
    •  If the material allows, add a fabric spray to keep the rug fragrant.


    How to remove stains from your rug

    Unfortunately, our hectic households are full of children, pets, guests and more alongside our everyday lives. Inevitably there are going to be spillages and accidents. Carpets and rugs usually take the brunt of it, but there’s no reason why everyday spills and stains should cause lasting damage. In this section, we look at some of the most common accidents and how you can remove stains from your rugs.


    How to remove red wine from your rug

    The trick with red wine on the carpet, or any liquid for that matter, is to deal with it quickly. Using a clean white cloth, blot the wine up straight away. Once done, mix 3 parts baking soda to 1 part water and blot the stain with the solution, do not rub, alternate with a dry cloth to avoid getting the rug too wet. Once it’s dry, vacuum it up.

    An alternative is to mix equal parts white vinegar, washing up liquid and warm water to blot the stain with.


    How to remove tea and coffee stains from a rug

    Fortunately for your rug, coffee and tea stains are fairly easy to remove, and you don’t even have to buy any special cleaners. To remove a coffee stain from your carpet or rug, first blot the area with a clean, dry towel. Don’t Scrub it!. Then, simply mix 1 part vinegar with 1 part water and blot until the stain has gone.

    How to remove nail polish from a rug

    Nail polish or paint can be harder to remove from a carpet or rug, but there are still a couple of methods. The first and most obvious is to use non-acetone nail varnish remover. Blot the stain with a clean, wet cloth to keep it damp. Then, using a new cloth, blot nail varnish remover on it and lift as much as you can from the rug.

    Window cleaner can also be used in place of nail polish remover, as can hair spray and a clean sponge. Always test on a small area first to minimise discolouration.

    If the nail polish has dried, then you need a different approach. Mix 1 part non-acetone nail varnish remover with 1 part rubbing alcohol and use an old toothbrush to gently rub the mixture into the fibres, being careful not to damage the pile. Vacuum up the loosened nail polish.


    How to remove pet stains from a rug

    Our four-legged friends are part of the family, but they can sometimes have accidents, especially when they’re young. Blotting any stains with a mixture of white vinegar, baking soda, and water should lift them right off your rug.


    How to remove mud and dirt from a rug

    With mud, it’s best to let it dry and then brush or, if suitable, vacuum as much off as you can. If needed, you can remove mud stains from your carpet or rug by creating a mixture of 2 tablespoons of salt in half a cup of white vinegar, blotting the area, and then vacuuming once dry. If the stain is really stubborn, use a stain remover best suited to the pile type.


    How to remove paint from a rug

    If you’ve spilt paint on your carpet or your rug, the best way to remove it is with the Hot Water Extraction Method a specialist rug or carpet cleaner will inject hot water at high pressure into the stain to restore your rug back to its original appearance.


    Removing smells from a rug

    Our rugs can easily trap smells over the years. Whether it’s from pets, spillages, smoking, or just general usage, keeping your rugs smelling fresh is just as important as looking fresh. Fortunately, there are several different methods for removing smells from your rug:


    Baking Powder

    One of the most common and effective ways to keep your carpets smelling fresh is by using baking powder. Making sure it’s dry, sprinkle the baking soda all over the rug. It pays to be generous with the amount you use, and if it’s a shaggy rug, use your hands to work it into the pile. Now, just wait a couple of hours (or ideally overnight) and simply vacuum it back up. If it’s a really persistent smell, repeat the entire process.


    Steam Cleaning

    If your rug can be steamed, this can be a very effective way of removing smells. Simply follow the instructions on your machine, and if the smell is really pungent, then add some white vinegar or a cleaning product into the mix as well. Allow the rug to dry fully before putting it back.


    Pet Smells

    Pets can leave unfortunate and pungent smells on your rug. To begin, follow the same steps we outlined earlier. While the rug is still wet, add baking soda to it and allow it to sit overnight. Before removing the soda, spray white vinegar onto the rug. It will bubble and foam as it reacts, but this is normal. Allow the mix to work for 5-10 minutes, and then, using a clean cloth, blot it dry. Make sure to keep your furry companion out of the way while you do this!

    Design Story

    Claire Gaudion’s rugs, fabrics and soft furnishing designs take inspiration from nature’s colours, patterns and textures, and are designed to help you create a feel-good home.

    Growing up on the island of Guernsey, Claire was surrounded by nature’s colours and textures.

    “Nature has always been my biggest inspiration. Observing its rhythms of light and shadows, its ever-changing colours and textures, and recognising its impact on mood and emotion has always fascinated me.” Claire Gaudion 

    Their textile collections take inspiration from nature’s colours, patterns and textures. Biophilic design is multi-faceted – there are many ways to ‘bring nature indoors. From greenery and indoor plants to fresh air and views onto nature, through to using naturalistic colours, textures and patterns that mimic a sense of nature in our homes. And, decorating your home with nature’s colour palettes, natural materials and layered tactile textures are some of the easiest and most accessible ways to refresh your home with a natural look.

    Where biophilic design is about nature looking after us, sustainable design is about us looking after the natural world. They work with respect for both of these.

    Since the beginning in 2013, they have been committed to working as sustainably and responsibly as possible and are continually reviewing how to improve on this.

    Claire Gaudion values skilled craftsmanship and collaborative partnerships. They recognise and celebrate the craft skills of the specialist weaving mills that weave fabrics, the artists and makers that craft rugs and all those who contribute to the products journey.

    They work with the best manufacturers to make the collections and all the rugs are created in collaboration with Momo Rugs and are endorsed by the Care & Fair label. The Care & Fair certificate confirms that no child labour is used, the weavers enjoy good living conditions and fair wages.
