Handmade rug meets Lucozade stain

We were recently requested to attempt to rescue a beautiful handmade rug over which a bottle of Lucozade had accidentally exploded. This has left an apparently permanent Lucozade stain which is often thought to be impossible to remove.

The “Pallette” rug (supplied by the Rug Company) was designed by Fiona Curran. This rug is entirely handmade, from the spinning of the wool to the weaving on the loom. It is unique, and has been crafted by weavers in the Kathmandu area, whose skills have been passed down through many generations.

The challenge was to remove Lucozade’s trademark orange colour (Beta Carotone) without bleaching the natural dyes used in the rug making process. It is considered by many cleaning companies to be impossible to remove a Lucozade stain. As you can see from the before and after photographs we were very successful in removing the majority of the staining. The rug was returned to a very happy client.
