Unfortunately, many cellulosic rugs are dyed with the the wrong type of dye, and therefore bleed or fade when washed.
Fiber reactive dyes (first used in 1956) were color-fast for cellulose. All cellulosic rugs made before 1956 will have color problems and rugs dyed with vat dyes, etc., also have color issues, even if new. Cotton Rug Shampoo is designed to clean these rugs. It is mordant fortified for cellulosic rugs.
Cotton rugs are never easy to clean, you need all the help you can get. Use Cotton Rug Shampoo.
