Hi,
I wash oriental rugs with this process:

Rugbudger
Prespray water and detergent (Prochem prespray gold)
Agitation with CBR TM4
Rinse with water and acid rinse

question:
Can I always use hot water?
Maybe it is better to use warm water only during rinsing?

sorry for my bad english, i am from Italy!

The wool and cotton will be fine with temperatures up to 160 F or about 71 C.

Hotter water will rinse better, but it can make some dyes more likely to bleed. be sure you have tested for colorfastness.
Thanks Scott!!!!!!
