For best results always clean rug first with Nikwax® Rug Wash. No need to dry item(s) before waterproofing. It is vital that rugs are washed and rinsed thoroughly. Shake well before use. Follow care label instructions.

Place clean rug in washing machine.
Use 500 ml for 1 rug. Treat 1 rug per load.
Run 30° cotton cycle.

Hand Wash (use gloves):

Use 500 ml for 1 rug, with 10 litres of hand-hot water in vessel.
Agitate to mix, push down into vessel so that whole rug is immersed.
Add a further 15 litres of warm water to cover rug and agitate.
Leave to soak for 2 hours, agitating occasionally.
Rinse in cold water until water runs clear.

Sponge Application (use gloves):

Spread clean rug on clean area and wet thoroughly with a hose.
Use 500 ml for 1 rug, with 1.5 litres of hand-hot water.
Using a new sponge apply solution to rug, working into fabric and seams.
