An Easy Way to Get Dents Out of Rugs

Rearranging your living room only to find unsightly dents in your beautiful area rug? Not a problem! Divots left behind in your rug by the legs of your furniture can easily be removed and fluffed out easily. Just follow these four simple steps to get dents out of rugs.

  1. Lay a damp towel over the dent.
  2. Run an iron over the towel on medium heat, checking periodically to see if the rug fibers beneath have begun to lift. The heat of the iron should gradually cause the fibers to spring back to their original shape.
  3. Leave the towel on top of the dent until completely dry.
  4. Finally, vacuum the affected area. The suction from the vacuum cleaner will pull the fibers up to their normal height.

This simple process should remove even the deepest divots from your rug.
