    I think that dark blue is just begging to bleed in the fringe.

    I've never seen one like this before. Nice small silk rug, I like the fringe design. Not sure how I'll feel about it after cleaning.

    we get those sometimes-- just clean with cold water and on the acid side. don't bother with fringe bleach.

    if they are soaked with old urine- then they could bleed even with acid rinse. too reduce this chance in this case we spray first with undiluted Last step.

    No urine. Just a little soiled.

    They will test it in the back. I just saw it laying on the counter and thought it looked like a potential problem.

    Test first with your cleaning solution. We get those a lot and most are ok to clean. Like Papa John says, cold water and slightly acidic prespray and rinse.

    I'm glad you like it . . .

    It will look good in your living room.
