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.

Choosing Term Life Insurance

Sometimes it’s not easy choosing or comparing term life insurance offered by different companies. There are lots of companies that offer different coverages that may work for you. There are also coverages that have extras that may not be that important to us. It would be easier to have some kind of guidance from a good site that shows the difference between the insurance offered by different companies. It’s better if the list has the companies that offer the best rates with better coverage.

Lovely Over Sized King Quilts

Monday, March 28th, 2011

Decorating your house should not just create a statement but should, at the same time, allow you to lounge and relax. Think, then, of the untapped ability of decorating your personal sanctuary or bedroom to create your desired mood. Your bedroom is where you can calm your senses and emotions to rejuvenate you from a stressful day. This is a perfect place for you to think, feel, meditate and dream. Your bedroom should be an embodiment of equal parts of sophistication, playfulness, comfort, and visual experience that is delectable yet far from precious- stimulating your senses while inviting you to just relax and put your feet up.

Your bedroom’s tones should be refreshing and soothing, totally encapsulating your love for relaxation. Lovely oversized king quilts are a great addition to your bedroom displaying sophisticated style sensibilities that mix with your family’s love for easy living. Quilts amazingly give all possible rich touches, and suggest the strongest flavor to an informal room. Patterns and colors interpret the rich code instantly, pulling the eye from whatever is mediocre in the room.

Comfortable over sized quilts are available in floral or prints that are so beloved in a Country home design. There are also refreshing plain shades of neutrals that are compatible with modern contemporary home design. Quilts can indeed set the tone of your bedroom and the option and styles are endless. Keep in mind that your choice of quilts should follow the general theme of your home and bedroom. Ultimately, find one that will add warmth and exuberance to your place of sanctuary so you can feel very much at home with sophistication.
