The most convenient method for drying the rug is hanging and air-drying. However, it is also convenient to use the dryer. Place the rug with the reverse surface up in the dryer and set the dryer to low heat. Remember that high heat can damage the rug. For larger rugs, a second dryer cycle might be required. Buffs or curls may occur on rugs that are dried in the dryer, but these fluffs will pass over time. The most effective way to get rid of this is to air dry your rug by hanging it. This will prevent the temporary buffs and curls.
