Rince the area with water and that’s it.

You will need a lot of water, so please try to organize the washing on a terrace or outdoors.
Use plenty of water and add the soap. You can use wool soap or another soft soap.
Brush the rug with a soft brush and rince it with a lot of water.
Roll it one time to wring it and rince again with water.
Roll it again to wring it and open it to let it dry outside, on a sunny weather.
You have to consider that the wool will become really heavy and you should do it only during warm and sunny days.
Make sure that you will have 2 or 3 days of sunny day so the rug could completely dry.
