How To Tell If Fake Cowhide Rug Or Real Cow-skin Rug

TEST 1 - Texture Of The Fur

In fake fur, it tends to be dense and course all the way through, while in real fur, it has different textures at the base and different textures at the top.

TEST 2 - Finger Test

Grab the fur and roll or rub the fur between your fingers. A fake fur will feel a little rougher and a little cozier.
In real fur, the feel is much softer and much smoother.

TEST 3 - Pin Test

In the third test, check the base where the fur is attached. Simply with a needlepoint, pin at the backing the fur. If the hair is synthetic, it will be attached to the material. The pin will easily slide inside it. Whereas on real fur, you will notice the fur attached to the animal skin, and the pin will not easily penetrate it.

TEST 4 - Fire Test

With synthetic or fake fur, when you burn it, it burns like plastic and smells like plastic. An original fur when you lit the fire will like hair, and it will also smell like a burning hair.

  1. First, remove all debris and dust settled inside the faux fur. Shake and dust out by taking the rug outdoors. Vacuum the carpet to eradicate all dirt.
  2. For stains, spray some Oxy Clean to the spot and leave it for half an hour.
  3. These rugs are so soft and flexible that you can also wash them in a washing machine. Simply put some bleach(Clorox Bleach) and some softener(Downy Fabric Softener). Add any mild detergent and put the rug fur facing downward so that it is more exposed to the water. No, let the machine run for ten minutes, or till the fur turns stainless.
  4. Once cleaned, squeeze out the water from the rug, hang the area rug for the excess of water to drain out. Then lay it flat to dry.
  5. After the rug fur dries out, use a Cat Brush and nicely comb the rug thoroughly.
