Question by passionate625: In say, 1600 or 1700. How did servants clean the rugs in the czar’s palace to get them to look like new?

I have a hard time with the rugs in my house using modern methods, I scrub alot of stains by hand and it really is alot of work. Then I steam vac it and let it dry or I have a service do it. But what about in the time of the czars. How did the servants get it clean, what materials did they use and what kind of cleaners? Did they get beheaded for doing a bad job? jk 🙂

they used bat’s spit and dinosaurs lung juices to do this part. U can still get it though from a well known pharmacist.

    It may sound strange but they probably used vinagar made from their own urine

    They took them outside and beat them with a broom!
