A WOMAN has revealed how she got her filthy rug sparkling clean using nappy cleaner, and the dirty water is enough to turn your stomach.
Taking to the Facebook group, Extreme Couponing & Bargains UK she shared the incredible before and after snaps of the mat.
Rather than buying a new rug she used half a cup of Napisan – a washing detergent designed for babies – and two capfuls of Zoflora in an attempt to restore it to its former glory.
She soaked the mat in the bath for five hours in total before rinsing it off, with the water turning a murky brown colour.
But the end result saw her rug looking as good as new.
Captioning her post she wrote: “I am GOBSMACKED.
“So I seen this video on tiktok of a lady who cleaned her rug with Zoflora in the bath, done some research and found articles on it also.
“Decided to do it myself instead of getting a new rug, and the amount of dirt a rug holds is absolutely insane!!! I can assure most people who do this with kids/pets/even in general who’ve had their rug for a while will get very similar results 🤮 (sic).”
Fellow group members were seriously impressed with the results, praising her handiwork in the comments.
One wrote: “Fantastic! Definitely going to try thanks.”
“Wow!” commented another, while a third wrote, “I’m trying this before i go buy another new one!!”
