Cleaning synthetic/shaggy rug


I got a rug from a friend, but it needs a little maintenance.
I noticed there are some parts of the rug that are a little tough or stiff. I was thinking if using a cleaning solution to try to soften the rough spots. I am looking to buy a spot cleaner soon as well and was curious if that might be ok to use (carefully of course.)

It's a bit of an odd rug. The link below goes to the same one I have.

I am unable to post a link or images, but if you search " dimension DI-96 " it should come up. (Black rug with white/silver wavy stripes)

Any input would be appreciated!

Getting in touch with a professional carpet and rug cleaning company is a wise idea for they know what cleaning methods can work for a certain type of carpet material and what will not.
You can do the following as well:

first is mix two tablespoons of mild liquid detergent with two cups water. Take Lukewarm tap water
secondly, use the Vinegar solution one cup vinegar to two cups water.
Thirdly you can use the Ammonia solution two tablespoon of household ammonia mixed with one cup water

NOw take a clean cloth and then rub the spots or stains with these and see the difference. If you still feel the results are not satisfying, then call a professional carpet cleaner near your area.
