By NEA Service A looming woolen shortage means you must give your rugs unusual care. Wear and general damage to rugs is caused principally by grit, moths, carpet beetles, and insect called the silver fish, dampness— which produces mildew and dry- rot—improper washings and, frequently, cigarette burns. Rugs should be cleaned frequently at home with vacuum cleaners, hand sweepers, brooms. Remember tpo, to turn rugs face down occasionally, to remove dirt on the under side. Wash rugs carefully at least once every two years. Those that bear the most traffic should be washed once a year. While home cleaning removes surface dirt, a thorough professional washing removes; the grit that cuts the piling' and also removes insect eggs or grubs. TURNING GIVES EVEN WEAR Turn your rugs around periodically so that wear will be more evenly distributed. Rugs pads or mats—often inexpensive—will add 25 per cent to a rug's normal life. Inasmuch as pads usually are made only from pressed .hair, they should be given only a light brushing with a broom. 'Rugs damaged by cigarette burns can be fully restored by re- weaving the piling or by patching. If old rugs don't fit when a family moves into a new residence, they can be re-cut and re-bound to order if they are the broadloom variety.
