I have been tempted to buy vintage rugs on ebay, with only one hesitation - are they stinky? Seriously, do they have an "other people owned me, and I smell like them" odor, and if so, how can you clean them?

Seriously?! Amazing! I'm so impressed. I've paid more for little stuff on ebay. What a steal.

anon: i take them to a local rug dealer. they clean them for about $30.

but all good rugs are old...in my opinion.
