Outdoor rugs can last for several years if they are taken care of properly. Throughout the summer, it’s a great idea to hose off your rug and even use car wash solution to clean off the dirt. But washing alone won’t extend the life of your rug. The fibers in the rug tend to get dry and britle as the summer goes on. One of the ways that I keep my rug looking new is to condition it with Armor All original spray.
It might seem like using Armor All would make the rug greasy-feeling. It will at first, but then the fibers soak it right in and your rug looks new again. Just spray small areas at a time and use a dishcloth to rub it in to the rug. Another way I keep my outdoor rugs conditioned is to use actual hair conditioner after washing the rug. Cheap conditioner will work just fine! Just use a scrub brush to rub it in and then rinse off!
