In terms of care and cleaning, wool felt is an extremely robust and low-maintenance material. The lanolin contained in the wool and the density of the material prevent rapid absorption of dirt and liquids. All myfelt felt rugs and felt ball rugs as well as all of the other myfelt felt products are made of purely natural materials. In terms of care and cleaning, wool felt is a very long-lasting material.
Due to the environmentally friendly dyeing method, myfelt felt ball rugs and other products may only be cleaned dry. Cleaning myfelt felt ball and felt products is best done by shaking or beating them out. myfelt dyes using purely ecological dyeing methods, which means that the wool fat content (lanolin, the natural fat content of felt) in the carpets is particularly high. Rapid penetration of dirt is prevented by the grease content of the wool and the density of the natural material. These high water- and dirt-repellent properties make the felt products long-lasting and robust companions.
- Water-based, as well as dry cleaning can lead to colour changes
- myfelt carpets can be vacuumed normally
- Do not (!) use a brush/brush attachments to vacuum the carpets.
If liquid is spilled, it will not be absorbed immediately due to the natural properties of felt, similar to the lotus effect, but can be removed with a damp cloth. If a dirt stain is only discovered afterwards, it can be removed quickly and easily with soap, warm water and a sponge.
As myfelt rugs can be used from both sides, you can turn the carpet over after many years and use the alternative side. Good as new!
If the felt or some of the felt balls have become roughened through daily and long-term use, the felt can be smoothed out with the help of an iron (setting: wool, if necessary also with minimal steam). To do this, carefully iron the roughened areas smooth with the iron. Lint, which can be caused by intensive and long friction, can easily be removed with a lint shaver.
Wool, and thus the handmade myfelt felt products made from it, absorb very few odours. Thanks to the natural self-cleaning function of the felt, absorbed room odours are almost neutralised. To maintain a long-lasting freshness, the carpets can be aired at regular intervals.
