I live in Northern California where a snow dusting happens about every 20 years. But I have heard for years of using snow to clean braided rugs….tho never doing it myself, alas.
Mary Rango, a blog reader from MA has sent the following photos illustrating the technique. She reports it brightens and cleans the rugs quite well and makes winter a little more palatable….well, maybe that’s a stretch.
I had my 94 year old Dad over for dinner tonight and was explaining the technique. To a native Californian it DOES seem weird, but to a native Californian rug braider, I am jealous! Thanks Mary…
