Yes, cleaning with snow is an option during the winter months. As it turns out, the icy white substance that is the bane of our existence come February is actually one of nature’s best cleansers.
This cleaning hack works best on smaller rugs that are handmade or antique wool, but you can also clean larger, heavier rugs if you have a few helping hands. Use dry, powdery snow for the best results.
Here’s how to deep clean a carpet with snow in five easy steps:
Take your rug outside and shake it to release as much dirt as possible. Let it sit for about 30 minutes so it acclimates to a lower temperature.
Pile three to five inches of snow on top of the rug, using a broom to evenly distribute to snow.
Beat the snowy rug using the flat side of the broom. Ammonia in the snow will react with the cold air causing the dirt hidden deep in the rug to solidify.
Let the snow rest on the rug for 15 to 20 minutes. Then, flip it over and repeat steps 1 through 3 with the other side.
Remove as much excess snow as you can before hanging the rug up for 20 to 30 minutes. The snow will eventually evaporate without leaving the carpet wet.
