Your rug is perhaps one of the most used items in your household without you even realising and when it comes to cleaning it, it can prove difficult to tackle.
The sheer size means it's not possible to squeeze inside the washing machine and yet the musty build-up needs ridding of every once in a while especially if you have pets that favour a spot snuggled up on it.
That's where one Mrs Hinch fan's speedy hack comes in by using your pressure washer to get all the dirt and grime out of your rug.

Taking to the Facebook page Mrs Hinch Made Me Do It, the original poster shared a picture stood on their rug after soaking it with the pressure washer.
"Jet wash your rugs to look clean and fresh," they wrote alongside the picture which showed the difference in the clean and dirty section midway through the process.
Hundreds commented on the hack saying that they did the same with some of their oversize rugs, but some where dubious that it wouldn't dry properly because it would be so wet.

"This is going to stink when it finally dries," wrote one, as another asked the original poster, "How did you get it to dry?"
They replied however, that hanging it outside is more than enough and no special drying treatment is needed.
"We used to wash carpets every year back home in Pakistan.. First I put the rug in the position so all water should run down, then put it on fence to dry," they responded.
Others were in strong agreement: "Thats the only way I wash mine. Pressure washed then over the gate to dry. No smell of dampness just a fresh clean rug."
"I jet washed my fluffy rug it dried lovely in the heat and now smells lovely again," shared another mentioning that taking advantage of the nice weather helps.
"Works a treat! I always jet wash my rug comes up looking brand new!' said a fourth as one went on to explain how to stop them smelling from still being damp.
"They don't smell at all if you wash and dry them right, my family abroad do it all the time with rugs and a whole living room carpet. Washed really good and hung to dry in this weather would dry not problem."
