- It may seem like a lot of work but take the shag rug outside once a month and hang it over a railing and beat it. This loosens any existing dirt and helps keep the rug smelling and looking fresh.
- If your vacuum has a "high pile" setting, use it. Shag rugs can be tricky to vacuum, even with an upholstery attachment but this setting helps greatly and doesn't allow the fibers to get caught in the vacuums spinning head.
- Soak up spills immediately with a dry cloth or paper towel. Once spills settle deep into the fibers of a shag rug it can be near impossible to clean. Once you've soaked up as much of the spill as possible with a dry cloth, go over it with a damp one. Follow up with dry shampoo and vacuuming as needed.
