Don't do it foo! You'll never be seen again!
Are Flokati rugs a bad idea? - Page 3
I've had my 8 x 10 ft flokati for almost 4 years and am about to get rid of it. I love wool, love the softness, but it is a HUGE pain to clean, and now it is a home for wool moths (clothes moths). OMG it is horrible. I have to hand vacuum as it is, so it takes a long time, and now, since it has moths I have to do it everyday -- sometimes twice a day. I still am finding moths flying around. I don't want them getting into my other woolens so it's going to have to go. I may try cutting it into carpet squares first, so they can fit into a washing machine, however my advice is "don't do it" unless you're getting a small one that you can easily pick up, beat in the sun, throw in a washer, have a vacuum that has incredible suction, and lots of time to devote to keeping it clean.
They're beautiful and wonderfully soft, but extremely hard to keep clean when they're large.
How's the rug now?
