In the last couple of years, we've seen a bunch of photos showing sheepskin rugs in the nursery. Heck, we have sheepskins in both our babies' nurseries. They provide a plush place for baby to roll around on, especially when you've got wood floors underfoot.
From a maintenace perspective, it's a bit more work than turning on the vacuum. The maker of our rugs told us to machine or hand wash your sheepskin in warm water using a mild liquid detergent, dry the sheepskin flat or on a line and stretch to shape while damp, and brush with a wire brush or comb. Anyone else use them as well?
