To clean a sisal rug, vacuum the rug, blot it with a cloth moistened with soapy water to remove any stains, and then blot the rug with a dry cloth to remove moisture. You need a vacuum, a bucket, mild soap and clean rags.

  1. Mix the ingredients

    Pour water into a bucket, and add mild soap. Agitate the mixture to form lather.

  2. Vacuum and blot the rug

    Vacuum the rug to remove dirt and buildup. Soak a soft cloth with the cleaner, wring the cloth to remove the excess cleaner, and blot the rug with the wet cloth to remove any stains.

  3. Rinse and dry the rug

    Moisten a clean cloth with clean water, and blot the carpet to remove the cleaner and dirt residue. Dry the rug by soaking up the water with a dry cloth.
