Concern by M L: How can I get a mildew scent out of a wool location rug?
The rug is only a handful of months previous, 5′ x 8′, quick pile, and largely wool. The tag states not to use a steam cleaner on it. We not too long ago had a mildew difficulty in a closet (distinct area) and now I am noticing the underside of the rug is commencing to scent musty. The is no obvious mildew but. I dwell around the coast and so it is typically a tiny damp. I can place the rug in the sunlight for a handful of hrs if that may well aid. Any concepts?

Anything at all quick of bleaching the rug with chlorine bleach would be an enhancement. Flip the rug above and enable it entry to the sunshine for a day. This must at minimum eliminate the mildew and aid the scent.
