Lie like a cheap rug

Posted by Miri Barak on March 08, 2003

The context is:
"Women were handing out compliments like candy at a parade, but I took it witha grain of salt - I know women *lie like cheap rugs* when it comes to flattery.

What is the exact meaning of this expression,is it - hypocrisy?
Thank you
Miri
