Oriental rug from thrift store. Wool? How to clean?
Just got this rug from a thrift shop downtown. Excellent condition but dusty. Slight rubber smell from the floor pad it was wrapped/rolled in. Probably does not need much cleaning, but would like to know what is appropriate for this type of rug. Looks like wool.
It's probably not worth anything collectibly, but I love the relatively spare design and colors. There is no labeling whatsoever. Dragons with little birds(baby draqons?). Beiges/pinks/blacks/butterscotch.
I've had very good results on upholstery with warm water, light perfume added, no detergent, in a pressure/pump garden sprayer applied and then immediately extracted with a powerful shop vac. Sound ok?
Any possibilty of identifying the style/type/origin of this rug based on the photos?
