    I’ve washed Ikea wool rgs in my bathtub.

    Is there a label on the underside with care instructions? If it came rolled and wrapped there might be an info sheet in there.
    I‘d be careful about the colors running washing it in a tub (and it would weigh a ton!). You can always check with IKEA before you harm your rug (and your back!). 😃

    you might want to wash it at a laundrymat...in one of the industrial type washers

    Put it on a flat surface outside, hose down and then use a soft brush to add some soapy water to clean. Rinse really well to make sure all suds are removed and hang over a fence or something similar to let it dry.

    dont forget the color catchers...they pickup any dye in the washwater...with a larger item use 2 at least. Line dry If there are any spots...or a non skid backing in place.
