How to Clean Fringe on Oriental Rugs

The fringes on Oriental rugs often brown out and need to be cleaned. Care needs to be taken that no other parts of the rug are touched with these cleaning suggestions, as it may bleach out the color on the rug itself. Chlorine bleaching agents can dissolve wool or silk.


  1. In a bucket, combine equal parts of Matrix Target Tannin and warm water and apply to fringe.
  2. Scrub area using a detail brush.
  3. Rinse with water.

Warning: Always test material for colorfastness, follow label directions, and never mix product unless specified in the label directions. Each situation reacts differently and results may vary.
