Cowhide Cleaning Case Study

Cowhide Cleaning white hideAbout six years ago we sold a white cowhide rug to a local bedding & homewares shop, which was displayed on the floor near the front of the shop entrance. The shop receives heavy foot traffic with people bringing in road dirt and grime from the footpath on the soles of their shoes, and I’m sure a lot of dirt also blows inside from the atmosphere in the form of car exhaust fumes and construction dust.

Over the years I know they tried to clean it a few times but with limited success as it wasn’t easy without a proper product that was purpose made for job. They recently bought our Gorgeous Creatures Cowhide Cleaner product.

I was blown away when they sent a progress photo half way through the cleaning process using the cowhide cleaner. This is an extreme example but that cowhide rug was desperate for a clean. As you can see the left side they had already cleaned has come up looking great even while still wet (it will look even better once dry) and the right side shows the dark grey colour of the dirty hide.

The cowhide was cleaned in sections as per the product instructions. Apparently the rinse water was black for the first application, grey for the second and third application and was almost clear for the final application. Remember this was an extreme case - cowhides don’t normally need four applications. A normal cowhide rug if properly maintained will only need one simple application every 6 months for a good general clean.

So if that isn’t proof that this cowhide cleaner works then I don’t know what is. The Gorgeous Creatures cowhide cleaner has been especially developed for this purpose and it does a great job. Give it a go!
