How to clean a cowhide rug

Our Cowhide Rugs aren’t just fascinating to look at - they’re also very easy to care for. A dash of soap and water mixed with vacuuming is usually all that’s needed to keep your cowhide rug looking brand new.

  • Steam cleaning is also an option for getting stains out of your rug, as long as you use a small amount of water on towel. You definitely don’t want to let the cowhides get soaking wet, since it can ruin them.
  • Using a brush is another viable option for cleaning the rugs, as it eliminates the dust and dirt. Be sure to brush accordingly to the growth of the hair for best results.
  • If you find that a brush alone isn’t getting the job done, then use carpet cleaner. Apply it on the desired area of the cowhide carpet and then scrub the area with a sponge and allow it to sit and dry – this may take around 10 minutes. Once the area is completely dry, use the brush to smooth out the hair.
  • Just in case you spill any liquid on the cowhide, immediately wipe it with a wet cloth.
  • If you’re in an extremely humid area, you will definitely want to let the hide lie out in the sun once or twice a month.
