Cowhide Care 101: Keeping Your Rug Soft and Stylish

Cowhide rugs add a touch of natural beauty and sophistication to any space. But unlike some delicate textiles, cowhide is surprisingly low-maintenance!

Cowhide rugs are naturally durable, long lasting and rarely stain as most spills never penetrate the hide.

Keeping Your Cowhide : Easy Care Tips

Here's some easy tips to care for your stunning cowhide rug:

  • Do not steam clean.
  • Vacuum regularly like any other rug. Best practice is to vacuum in the direction of hair.
  • Shaking rug out from time to time helps loosen any debris that vacuum misses.
  • Dried spills can be scrapped off with butter knife, followed by vacuuming.
  • Liquid spills should be blotted up quickly, and dry with clean cloth.
  • Do not ever saturate cowhide with water intentionally for cleaning.
  • Spot clean with white vinegar and water. Blue Dawn also works well for messier spot cleaning.
  • Over time cowhide may curl near edges when placed in hot or sunny location. This is normal for any hide. Not to worry, dampen with a little water and place a book or heavy object on top until dry.
