Scotchgard Area Rugs?
I've just bought new area rugs I really like, they weren't terribly pricey at Tuesday Morning but I probably won't replace them for 5 years or more.
I'm wondering about treating them with Scotchgard or a similar product before I put them down. For the hexagonal one in the entry I'm thinking it is a must, that is where most of the dirt and wet (assuming it rains again here, someday) will be. But I'm worried about how safe that stuff is - I'm thinking I don't want it on the 8 x 10 in the living area because the children will be more likely to roll on that one, and I'd worry about chemical exposure? Anyone have good info or experience to share?
