Remember the auction we went to on Sunday….the one where hubby bought Betty, my new featherweight? Well I was so excited about the sewing machine that I forgot to tell you about my rugs. I got four braided rugs…
One is big…
These are perfect colors for me….
One is red and black. Hubby liked this one. I did too but I wasn’t sure where I’ll put it.
There are two that look like this one that Pepper and Gracie are showing off. One of these small ones needs a bit of repair.
I got a good price on these…not as good as the sewing machine, but definitely a price I was happy with. I loaded them up and brought them home but they are musty. They have that older basement smell to them. I took them outside and hung them over the railings…but after a couple days, still musty.
Does anyone have any suggestions to get the musty smell out of wool braided rugs. I don’t want to leave them outside too long because I don’t want them to be faded by the sun.
Years ago I got our kitchen rug, which is the same type of rug, for free from Freecycle. It smelled like pets. I left it outside and the smell eventually went away. Please leave any advice you might have on how to get out the smell here in the comments….
