Sue Radloff, reporter. Typing. (Mrs. Hoven) The following sophomores have Iowa City, Iowa January 24 —Did you know that nylon carpeting made from dull fibers is more soil- resistant than that made from shiny fibers? Or that cotton carpeting shows soil more quickly than wool? The most important part of carpet care involves knowing the fiber content of the carpet, says Jeannine Welch, instructor in home eco-i nomics at The State University of Iowa. Wool, the acrylics and nylon may he easily ; cleaned by either home or professional methods, but professional cleaning is recommended for acetate, cotton and rayon, especially if the carpets are heavily soiled, Mrs. Welch says. You will probably prefer to remove a minor spot on any carpet yourself, but if your carpet has I large stains or is very dirty, you will benefit by having the carpet cleaned professionally, she continues. Some carpet manufacturers recommend professional cleaning every five years, but this also will depend upon the use you give the carpet, Mrs. Welch explains. A carpet in a seldom-used room might not need cleaning that often, but carpeting in a dining room, for example, may need to be professionally oleaned every year or two. Wool, the acrylics and dull-fi- bered nylon are quite soil-resistant, with acetate and cotton somewhat less soil-resistant. Rayon carpeting is the least soil resistant carpeting. Nylon and the acrylics are also resistant to stains. Most carpets sold today are mothproofed, Mrs. Welch says, but check the label of wool carpeting to be sure it has been permanently mothproofed. The acrylics and nylon are mildew-resistant and can be washed with soap and water, but you should always be careful not to get any carpet too wet, Mrs. Welch cautions. Foam-type cleaners now on the market are effective for cleaning slightly soiled carpeting, she continues. Your dealer can recommend a cleaner or cleaning kit that may be used with satisfac tory results. for rural and suburban homes, BETTER LIVING with PHILGAS 1 " -'•-^'•• :; &fck ;\0i • THE AIL-PURPOSE FUEL This clean burning, economical LP-Gas serves you so many ways...makes family living more comfortable, more convenient.
