Care Instructions Care Info: You've put a lot of care into choosing your furnishings. And with continued care at home, they should share your address for many years to come. Now for your owner's manual… Heather Shag 5'x8' Rug Rug pad recommended. Professional cleaning recommended. Blot spills immediately with a clean, absorbent white cloth. Rotate rug frequently for even wear. Clip, do not pull, if snagging occurs. Not for use over carpeting without appropriate rug pad. Vacuum regularly without the beater bar turned on (or on highest pile setting). Shedding is a characterstic of shag rugs and will continue for the life of the rug.
