I have a number of small, lightweight rugs around the house. The entry way. The hall. A couple in the living room. And, they get covered in cat hair. Thanks, Dizzy!
Rugs like this are sort of hard to vacuum. Especially when they're on a hardwood or tile floor - my house. They bunch up. They get sucked up into the vacuum. Then, I had a epiphany. Put them on top of another larger, heavier rug!
There's just enough 'grip' when they are on another rug, that you can easily work in any direction - being careful of those tassels on the end, however - and get them looking nice again!
There! That was easy.
