How do I wash a sheepskin rug?
I am catsitting, and the cat peed on my fairly large, long-haired sheepskin rug. The wool is real, not imitated.
I put it in the washing machine on the wool-program (30 degrees Celsius) with some wool detergent.
Thankfully, the smell of cat pee went away, but now that the rug is dry, the “skin side” of it is very stiff.
How can I make it soft again, and should I have washed it differently?
