I realized today that the rug in my son's nursery is starting to look really dirty. I vacuum at least once a week, but it just seems to have a grey-ish tint to it. I just used some 409 carpet cleaner and used it exactly like it said, but the rug is still dirty looking. It's a 3 x 5 rug, so it's too big for the washer, although I have considered trying to shove it in there just because I don't know how else to get it clean. But I'd probably end up ruining both the washer and the rug. I thought about sprinkling Oxyclean all over it, then spraying it with water and seeing if that works. Any thoughts? I found the rug at a children's consignment shop, so it wasn't expensive, but it matches the room so perfectly so I don't want to have to get rid of it. But dirty carpet grosses me out!
