Ended up using Woolite, a sponge mop and the hose, rug was on a tarp on the driveway. Finished up with a wet/dry shopvac to get most of the water out.

Thanks, I was scared to try it, but it is quite easy. It only took about a half hour, so I guess my hourly rate was $160! Too bad for the rug peeps, they lost out on their 80 bucks. I'm doing the second rug tomorrow, when the sun comes back out.
We drug the wet rug into the office and put it up on saw horses over the tarp, then turned on the A/C to dry it the rest of the way. I am in hopes of getting it home this evening. Meanwhile, I am freezing my a$$ off as I type this!

Ya know the HEATER might have dried it, too.
