polypropylene rug 'disaster'
In a fit of enthusiasm I decided to wash my multi coloured polypropylene rug. Washed fine and I set it out to dry on the lawn but in the process of drying it has stretched/buckled. We have very hot summers here (Australia) so perhaps I should not have dried it in the sun ? Anyway, it is a bit of a problem now. I smooth it out several times a day, even tried to stick it down to the carpet at the corners with velcro stick on dots (didn't work) and although it is not valuable I really just like it and would like to restore it somehow. I have also tried damping it a little and weighting it down overnight with encyclopedias but that didn't help much either. No washing instructions on the rug itself. Does anyone have any suggestions or do I just live with it ? I was actually wondering whether it might be worth washing it again and trying to "set" it back into shape while it is still wet. I don't want to make things worse though !
Any tips or clues VERY much appreciated.
