Hair on hides are naturally very resilient. They should be vacuumed for regular upkeep, always moving the vacuum wand in the direction of the hair, never against. Should a spill occur, blot immediately using a clean absorbent cloth or paper towel. Should soiling remain, use a sponge dampened in plain cold water or a mild vinegar solution to gently rub the affected area – in the direction of the hair. A soft nylon brush may be used to help release any stubborn debris. Allow to air dry. Never place a hair on hide rug in a washing machine or submerge in liquid to clean.
