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.

A Warm Fire

Sunday, April 22nd, 2012

Sometimes it’s perfect being in front of a warm fire on cold days. Some have fireplaces at home where they can warm up and some have fire pit tables or outdoor fire pits that can be placed near the pool, in the garden or maybe just outside the porch. If the house is fronting the beach, a bonfire on the beach will be fun. Warming up while sitting on the sand and hearing the water splash on the beach is quite an experience. It can be romantic on a cold summer night.

TV Stands

Sunday, April 15th, 2012

The Televisions nowadays are getting wider but thinner. With the thin design of the TV, they are perfect for mounting on a wall like a painting. Some still prefer the use of TV stands instead of mounting it on a wall because it will be easier to move the TV on a stand. There are also TV stands with mounts which is a better choice so the TV is securely placed on the mount. With the thin structure of the TV, there may be a concern about the TV falling off or falling face down. But with the TV mounted, there should be no worries of it falling down.

Update your Home Accents and Design

Sunday, November 28th, 2010

Modern contemporary home design, like comfort and beauty, does not always come in expected and recognizable forms. Scale, rhythm, and proportions are often realized in startling forms. The look of modern contemporary style has smooth and unbroken linear appeal. To foster this, fabrics are usually solid shades or quiet tone-on-tones that are softly textured. To delineate areas for dining, entry or sleeping, rugs are placed to also add a grand touch of art on the floor.

The texture of accents is important to prevent monotony in the modern contemporary home style and so are occasional accent colors in the living room to make an interesting focal point. The textures are supple and sumptuous. If you have a good eye, you can update your home accents and design and add a classy carpeting that takes on radiance from shining mirrors in your modern contemporary conversation area.

Entertainment Center

Tuesday, February 9th, 2010

Every home has a TV. I guess it’s one of the things that we think of putting in the house for our enjoyment. If it’s not the TV that’s always used it’s the radio or sound system which helps us relax while we are on the bed or on the couch. Most of us would also want the whole home theater system that would really make watching movies an enjoyable experience. The only problem now is where to put the system. The TV and home theater system can be put on an entertainment center. Some of the entertainment centers are designed to fit in the home theater system of have separate towers for the speaker system and also act as a shelf for other things like decorations or discs. Others are designed with their own shelves where lots of other things can be stored. Others are like cabinets so that the speaker system is hidden and are opened only when needed. The entertainment center can save space at home and also would improve the looks of the gaming room or bedroom.
