Currently using metal spring clamps with vinyl tips and they are leaving indents on the rugs. Anybody have a better solution?
So basically just wedge a towel in between the spring clamp and the rug so that it doesn't leave a indent?Larger rugs should stay in place just by their own weight.
Hang all rugs at an angle rather than straight across the bottom. Use a spring clamp to hold a clean towel at the two low corners. Several benefits to this.
For small rugs that might fall off, use one more spring clamp to hold the two sides together at the bottom.
Yes, but this is at the bottom of the rug. The main purpose is that any water left in the rug (which will always carry some soil) goes down into the towel instead of the edge of the rug or the fringes. Stops fringes from turning brown. This also distributes the weight of the wet rug across many wefts instead of concentrating the weight on one weft line which will weaken. Several other benefits as well.So basically just wedge a towel in between the spring clamp and the rug so that it doesn't leave a indent?
