I would never have thought of using corn meal. And did not know shaking a rug could damage it - guess I have to stop the practice!

This is very surprising, I always sake my rugs and washing machine it. LOL! Thanks for the tips.

Also when drying your rugs, rotate it frequently to equalize effects of the sun as to avoid continual direct exposure to sunlight.

Really? I shake them all the time, though! Although, that happens only when I have time to spare to clean up my rugs. I also brush them hard with one of those hand-held scrubbers you find on the hardware stores.
