Care and Cleaning Of Your Cow Hide Rugs

With a little bit of regular care and a little bit more commonsense, cow hides can look great for decades. To best care for your cow hide, follow these steps:

  • Vacuum regularly just as you would your carpet to keep your rug clean and free from dust, dirt and other foreign particles,
  • Brushing with a stiff bristled brush or broom will help to remove dirt and foreign particles trapped in the hair,
  • Spot Clean by wiping the cow hide in the direction of the hair with a damp (not wet) cloth with mild soap and water,
  • Rotating your rug or move to a different location occasionally will help with even wearing,
  • Air regular by hanging over several lines of the clothes line on a sunny day will help with freshness.

For common spills like food, tea and coffee, wine etc soak up spills immediately with paper towels. Remove solid matter with the blunt edge of a dinner knife by scraping gently in the direction of the hair then wipe over with a damp cloth using mild soap and warm water.

For oil based spills like fat, grease, lipstick, chewing gum etc this is more difficult to treat so take care and avoid these spills. First, remove solid matter with the blunt edge of a dinner knife by scraping gently in the direction of the hair then dab eucalyptus oil directly unto the affected area using a soft cloth. Finally wipe over with a damp cloth and mild soapy warm water.

NB. Do not soak cow hides or get too wet. Do not wash in a washing machine or dry clean.
