So, when it comes to jute rugs, water is only a friendly option. Drenching jute rugs in water can damage the carpet, so we suggest you consider a few things and do spot cleaning, which is an effective method.

  1. If you have a liquid spill, immediately, you will need a paper towel or cloth to press down on the spot of the spill. Work from outside to the inside of the spill. This way, you will avoid the spill from spreading out. Continue this action until no moisture transfers to the cloth or paper towel.

  2. If you have a solid spill, you can easily scrape them with a dull knife or nail file. 

  3. For the stains that have a high factor of dyeing your jute rug, like red wine or tomato sauce, you will need to dab a dampened cloth with club soda to neutralize the spill and remove the stain.

  4. After everything, let the rug dry completely before you put it back in place. If you notice that the stain didn't disappear, you can use a cloth with mild soap or a natural rug spot remover.

To collect all of the hair and dust, you can use a vacuum; make sure that while vacuuming the jute rug, you are gentle with it.
