"How do you vacuum this rug? I purchased the 10' x 12' version and my vacuum pulls at the nubs. It's too large to take outside and shake...."
the 30x50 size of the same rug had white leather strips and this one (the 4x6) had no white leather strips, so they didnt quite match for use in the same room. Otherwise I like them. You cannot vacuum them unless you want to break all of the strings that hold the leather strips together: all you can do is shake them out. And when they arrive they will have a leather smell that will eventually go away. I expected that, so it wasnt a surprise. The rugs are reversible, which is a big plus....

Questions & Answers
Hello dkk14, we appreciate your inquiry. You should be able to vacuum this rug, just don’t use the rug beater option. It is best to use the lowest power setting, and if possible use a hand held attachment. We hope this information has been helpful. Thank you for shopping with us. Have a great day!
I would shake it out. Vacuuming this rug is not a good idea since it is made out of strong and leather strips.
