It is best to clean your wool rug regularly so that stains and dirt do not set in. If you find a stain clean it immediately. Use a towel to soak up the spill. Wool is very sensitive to abrasion so do not scrub the stain because this can cause matting of your rug and can cause the stain to move deeper into the fibers.
