Machine wash separately using a delicate, 30ºC program without whitening. Use a light soap, and do not use softeners. Do not leave in the machine once the wash has finished, as the colors may run or stain other parts of the rug. Dry in the dryer at a low temperature. Avoid drying in the sun. Don't worry if lint appears, as this is residue fiber produced from cutting the cotton. During the first few days, it is advisable to sweep the rug with a hard brush in the direction of the plush, and then it is recommended to use the vacuum cleaner. Should you find any long or loose threads, cut these using a pair of scissors. Never pull a thread. Keep away from fire.
