This rug is cream, with dark brown pattern.

I tend to treat acrylic rugs as wool - do so and you should not go far wrong,

First a good pre scrub with rotary maching with a very soft brush
lower the heat down on the truck mount
and use a good fiber rinse
almost forgot pre vacuum really good.

Acrylic fibres were produced to resemble Wool and they do a pretty good job... it cleans well with HWE, although it doesn't have the resilience of Wool therefore the pile will not 'lift' in the same way.
