Okay now, those of you who are sensitive about how finished work is treated: look away now.

This is how I wash my finished carpets. I swish them around in the kitchen sink with a squirt of dish soap and warm water. (Uh oh. Someone didn’t look away and I can hear the screaming now.) Seriously, this is how I wash them. After a good rinse I squeeze them out, pull them into shape and iron them dry. If you follow my recommended stitching method they’ll stand up to a fair amount of tugging around.
