Getting Wine Out of Cow Hide Rugs

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014

cowhide rugA cowhide rug can be a great accessory for many homes and buildings. While cowhide rugs are very durable and easy to clean, a wine stain may require some extra work to remove. The following guide provides simple tips and tricks on how to remove win stains from cow skin rugs.

When cleaning a cow hide product, it’s important to understand that some chemicals can damage the hide. It’s important to avoid very acidic or basic cleaning agents. These include bleach, acetone, peroxide, hydrogen peroxide and sodium carboxide. Cleaners with a very high pH level will dissolve the amino acid bonds in the cow hide. If a cleaner with a very low pH is used, it will bleach the cow hide, creating lighter-colored sections.

If wine is spilled on a cow hide rug, it’s important to clean it up as soon as possible. Using a dry paper towel, dab the area where the wine was spilled. Try to avoid pressing the liquid into the cow hide rug: This will make it significantly more challenging to remove any stain.

Once all liquid has been removed from the rug, apply a 5:1 mixture of water and baking soda directly to the stained area. If possible, try to make sure that the baking soda mixture is warm. This will help to lift the stain out of the rug.

Allow the baking soda mixture to sit for at least five minutes. Once five minutes are over, dab up all liquid using a dry paper towel. It’s still important to avoid grinding any liquid deeper into the carpet. Repeat this process until the baking soda mixture remains clear.

Another effective way to get a wine stain out of a cow hide rug is through the use of a steam cleaner.

A steam cleaner uses regular water to clean. By applying steam directly to the site of a stain, it’s possible to “lift” the stain out of the rug. In many cases, steam cleaners are an excellent way to ensure that there isn’t any residue left behind. In addition, most steam cleaners are less likely to cause discoloration.

By cleaning a cow hide rug immediately after a spill, it’s usually possible to reduce the risk of a permanent stain. If a rug has multiple stains on it, it may be a good idea to hire a professional cleaning company. A professional cleaning company has access to specialized tools and cleaning agents that can thoroughly clean a cow hide rug without the risk of damage.

Sympathy Gifts

Thursday, February 23rd, 2012

It’s quite sad that everything ends and we sometimes lose someone. The time will come that someone dear to us like a grandparent will have to move on. It must be hard for those who are left behind and somehow we would like to show them that we are there for them. It’s not easy to express how we feel for them in words and we would rather give them personalized sympathy gifts to show our condolences. We may not be able to really show them that we are there for them but they might just have a lighter heart everytime see the gifts that show them that we care.

Wednesday, September 28th, 2011

Sometimes we see in movies characters that smoke cigars. When they are at their home or office, they have their own humidor where the cigars are kept. They don’t use just any container for their cigars. The humidors provide a perfect environment for storing and aging cigars. The designs of these cigar containers also make their office look a bit classical or an office a bit more formal especially if the room is made of wood or has a wood finish. It can also be a great gift for someone you know smokes premium cigars.
