Sisal is yet another vegetable fiber, native to Central America. It is obtained from the leaves of the sisal plant. The fiber is extremely coarse. Unlike jute, sisal can't be used in the fabric industry. It finds ample use in the making of rugs, mats, and ropes, keeping in mind its high durability. The fiber also is used in making decorative and ornamental items. It is also used in paper industry. Oflate, due to its durability and coarse nature, the fiber is being used in making furniture and plastic. It is also used in the construction industry. The fiber, at its natural state is straw-colored. However, with the headway progress all square, this fiber also faces stiff completion from the artificial synthetic fibers, like most natural fibers do. However, this happens to be a favorite among those who are in favor of using natural fibers.
Now sisal carpets can be painted from at home, using simple techniques in changing the way it looks as it adapts to your room's needs. Looking for a way to spruce up a drab hallway or bedroom space? Try throwing in a sisal rug to complement the colors in your room, while incorporating colors that will match and gently contrast what you already have present in your surrounding area. Sisal rugs can be bought in any size and shape, with many people opting for its original coloring while later getting experimental with ways on how to include color into it, from at home.
When using the vacuum cleaner, use the strong suction pipe attachment so that the pressure helps to dislodge the heavily set dirt. It will also prevent the build up, and therefore cleaning will become easier and less of a cumbersome task. It also helps if you take a wet cloth over the rug surface so that the layer of accumulated dust can be cleaned up (do not do this to a sisal-wool rug). Never wash the rug as this could destroy it altogether.
Cut wool strips of about 3-4 inches wide to a length of your choice. You can use old wool blankets or other woolen clothing, but take care that the fabric is not completely worn out as it may tear the rug. You can even contact your local dealer for used blankets which is of no use to them. If you want to make a rug matching your home decor, you can always buy wool in various colors.
