Revive a Coir Doormat

Give guests a warm welcome this holiday and prevent tracked-in dirt, too! If you've got a fiber mat that's starting to show wear and tear from this winter's boot traffic, bring it back to life with water and a broom. First, scrape off any caked-on mud with a spoon or knife, then hang the rug outside and beat it with the broom's handle. Use a stiff-bristle brush and water to clean any remaining dirt particles, and lay flat to dry. Keep up this maintenance and your mat can last up to six years.
