I made the executive decision this morning to discard the area rug I've spent so much time cleaning. Last night I washed again, then rinsed, and every single time I emptied the collection bucket it was as full of dirt as the previous time, after three washes the rinse still looked that way. My dogs love it, but I don't. I'll get them a smaller rug to loll around on.

The rug rolled up into a narrow roll but leaving it at the curb on top of the fence it wouldn't stay that way, some idiot would drive by and want to take a look and unroll it. So I tiled it shut and I used a Sharpie to write "NO you don't want this dog rug" on the side exposed to the street. If I was driving by I'd stop and take a photo and post it to Instagram. (I already posted it myself.) As I shifted it into position on the trash pile it gave off a gentle whiff of dog pee.

That rug was also a source of dust, so maybe cleaning will be a little easier.
