I bought a beautiful rug in Ethiopia - however, it was obviously never
"treated" and smells like a barn (to be polite). It's been aired for
months, and lots of ideas applied to it (baking soda, vacuumed, even
dry cleaned). The result is still a pretty strong barn-like smell.
Please, has anyone got any suggestions? I suspect the (natural) dyes
have not been fixed but I'm getting to the stage where I'm about to
use detergent and be damned (!)
Feel free to email me direct if you prefer. Thanks, Lina
