Rescue Your Rug

It's not so difficult to get silly putty off your area rugs. The first thing you need to do is to pick off as much as you can. Then apply a small amount of household spray lubricant. Leave it for a couple of minutes, and use a terry washcloth to lift any remaining gunk. Dampen a clean cloth with alcohol and blot area. Then make a solution of dishwashing soap and warm water and sponge on the stained parts. Rinse and air-dry.
