Care instructions Vacuuming with a low-power carpet nozzle without bristles or very soft bristles. Rotate the rug 180 degrees regularly. Hemp rugs naturally repel dirt. If a stain gets on the carpet, it can be soaked in a clean kitchen towel. Dyed hemp rugs fade over time. For this reason, we do not recommend black Roots hemp rugs for patio or balcony use or other areas where the rug is exposed to strong sunlight.
