With SNOW! This sounds like a great idea, and fairly easy, too. I'm also going to try it on my braided rugs (which I don't think are wool). If it doesn't work it doesn't matter - because if I can't get them clean they're going to be tossed anyway because they are not worth all the time, effort and money of actually using a carpet cleaner (I only have two of them). I use these braided rugs in the lower level of our home in my laundry room, right in front of the washer and dryer and one in front of my two freezers.

My DH uses the door in the laundry room several times a day because it goes out into the garage without actually having to go outdoors. When it's below zero or the wind is galing a gust (like for the past 3 days of nearly 60 mph gusts and constant winds of about 25-35 mph - and we're scheduled for more of the same today) it's very handy indeed to use that door, but he comes in with wet, snowy, sometimes dirty boots and eventually my rugs look nasty. It's supposed to snow tomorrow (we'll see) and if not, then later in the week. Might be a perfect time to try out this idea. I'll report back.
