You may have heard, but washable rugs from Rugs USA are all the rage right now. Seriously! Our collections have been flying off the metaphorical shelves since we launched them, and we’re so excited to continue expanding our assortment to suit all your various needs.
With so many different styles, materials, and constructions available in washables, we know that finding the right one can be a little tricky. So, we’ve put together this handy dandy guide to help you decide which type of washable rug is right for you, plus a few bonus tips on how to roll them out in your space.
Classic Washable Rugs
When you’re looking for a washable rug with a flat, soft pile, look to our collection of classic styles, which are the first washables we’ve ever launched. They continue to be best-sellers, and come in hundreds of different colors and styles. Think rugs with bold geometric motifs, rugs with traditional designs, transitional patterns that fit in with any space… the list goes on!
Wool Washable Rugs
Yes, you read that right: We make washable rugs made out of wool! Crafted from sustainably sourced, premium wool, they’re our softest and most plush offering when it comes to washables. We love the earthy vibes and cozy texture they bring in and how warm they feel under bare feet (especially little ones!). Learn more about these styles here.
Washable Kids Rugs
Our washable kids rug collection combines two great things—our washable technology and adorable, kid-friendly motifs—together to create styles that are perfect for kids’ bedrooms, playrooms, and any other space they hang out. We’ve created a host of styles that your little one is sure to love, from whimsical animals to town map scenes to educational alphabet and numbers designs. Learn more about these styles here.
Washable Outdoor Rugs
For when you need a rug that can brave the elements and spills, our washable outdoor rugs are here to do the job. Roll one out underneath your outdoor dining table, sitting area, under lounge chairs by the pool, and anywhere else you enjoy spending time in the great outdoors.
Washable Stain-Resistant Rugs
All our washable rugs are great for rolling out in mess-prone spaces. But our stain-resistant styles are what you’ll want to turn to in areas that get especially dirty. Think under dining tables, in kitchens, in the entryway, and any space where red wine (or any other notorious hard-to-remove materials!) might be consumed. We upped the ante on our classic washable designs with this collection, crafting each piece from from sustainably-sourced, premium polyester yarns treated to be water and stain repellent. Read more about the styles here.
Faux Cowhide Washable Rugs
These styles are undeniably chic, and perfect for layering over an existing rug or standing all on their own. Like our other washable rugs, they’re super soft and completely worry-free, meaning you can add them to just about any area in your home (yes, including in places where you eat!).
Easy-Jute Washable Rugs
With this collection, you get all the convenience of our washable rugs and the beauty of jute styles—without all that pesky shedding! We’re seriously obsessed with our easy-jutes, which offer the natural look of real jute rugs, but are instead made with GRS-certified, recycled polyester fibers that look just like the real thing. Add them to any space you would add a jute rug, and let go of worrying about spills, stains, shedding, and mildew!
Washable Shag Rugs
If you want to sink your feet into something soft and sumptuous, it doesn’t get any better than shag rugs. Unfortunately, shag rugs are known for holding onto dirt and other messes, and can become grimy over time if not properly cared for or if rolled out in a place with lots of action. Enter our washable shag rugs, which offer all the plushness of non-washable shags, plus the convenience of being (you guessed it!) washable.
How to Use and Care for Your Washable Rugs
It couldn’t be easier to add our washable rugs to your space. In fact, most of ours have a convenient no-slip backing and one-piece design, meaning you don’t have to worry about attaching yours to a pesky base layer (like some of our competitors).
Aside from that, the care instructions are simple: Once you see a spot on your rug, roll it up and place it in the washer with your favorite mild detergent (no bleach!) on a gentle cycle. When it’s done, tumble dry in your dryer without heat or on an air-only cycle, or hang it to dry by draping over railing or elevating between two surfaces. Either way, be sure your rug is completely dry before laying it back down. Once it’s dry, roll it back out in its original spot, and your space is good as new!
