There are a few other things you should know about cowhide brand rugs. Don't be alarmed if you notice a fold or a crease in your cowhide rug - it's perfectly normal.The crease/fold will eventually iron itself out over time, but if you'd like, you can place a flat, heavy item (like an encyclopedia) on it to help flatten it out quicker. Another method to remove creases is to apply a wet towel on the back part of the rug and press down on it with an iron (at low heat). Do not let the towel soak up too much water. We do not suggest doing this too often as it may compromise the natural condition of the cowhide. These chemicals can sometimes produce a strong odor that you might find less than desirable. We suggest hanging the rug outdoors and allowing it to air dry for a few hours. If the odor persists, try using a carpet refresher or powdered carpet deodorizer to combat the scent. Cows spend extended periods of time in the sun when they're on farms. This prolonged exposure can cause their hides to be slightly discolored. Keep this in mind when you order a cowhide rug. You might be expecting a pristine white rug, but due to sun exposure and other natural weather elements, it's actually off-white or even ivory-colored. All Cowhide Patchwork Made to Order. Durable, low maintenance and much more FUN! The wonderful thing about cowhide patchwork rugs is that they're pretty easy to clean and maintain. Besides periodic vacuuming, simply applying soap and water to a sponge is pretty much all that's needed to clean the rug.
