Life is messy. And it’s especially messy if you live in a household with kids and pets. That’s why we developed and designed our own collection of washable rugs—so you can bring stylish, high-quality rugs into your home without the stress and worry that comes with inevitable spill, smudge, tracking in of dirt… you know, all those “oops” moments! Keep reading to discover what our one-piece washable rugs can do, how to care for them, and why they are an amazing investment for your home.
1. They’re kid- and pet-friendly.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy your home—kids, pets, stains, and dirt don’t stand a chance up against our washable rugs! We crafted these rugs to be worry-free, meaning they’re stain- and spill-resistant, and you can throw them in the washer when they get dirty (more on that later).
2. They look and feel just like “regular” rugs.
You know how some things that are “washable” just look a little… off? So not the case with our washable rugs! We know how important it is to create a beautiful home you love, so we made sure all these styles look and feel like our other rugs. They’re made from sustainably-sourced premium synthetic fibers, resulting in a texture that feels great under feet with every step. We also wanted to make sure they came in a range of styles to suit a number of different homes, so you’ll find traditional, Moroccan, colorful, and neutral rugs in our collection.
3. They can go in any room.
From high-traffic living rooms to kids’ bedrooms, our washable rugs can go just about anywhere. Take it from mother of four Maureen of @maureeneisenhart: “I have really loved the idea of it right by my front door because of all the traffic there. I can easily throw it in the wash when needed. For now, though, this 5′ x 8′ size [seen above] is fitting best in the nursery. [But] let’s be honest, with four kids, a washable rug will be convenient anywhere in the house.”
4. Made in one piece, they’re easy to roll out.
If we had to choose one word to describe our washable rugs, it might have to be “easy.” We wanted them to be as simple as possible to roll out, wash, and then roll back out. So we designed the original one piece system—no struggling to line up the top with a separate backing layer!—and with a no-slip grip on the bottom side. (Though if you want a little extra padding, you can always add a rug pad underneath! Or a jute rug, as seen above, for a luxe layered look.)
5. They’re a breeze to clean.
So how exactly do you wash these beauties? Pretty much exactly how you wash your clothes. Machine-wash the rug with cold water and mild detergent—no bleach! (And yes, the entire rug will fit in the washer!) To keep your rug looking its best, we recommend hanging to dry, or drying without heat on an air-only dryer cycle. For any stubborn wrinkles or kinks, a low-heat iron can be used to smooth it out.
6. You’re a fan of neutral décor, but worry about keeping a light-colored rug clean.
Cool whites and creamy tans and ivories are some of our favorite rug colors, but we understand they aren’t always the most practical, especially in high-traffic areas. With a washable rug, you can create the light and bright oasis you’ve always wanted without having to worry about every spill and footstep. Our Ivied Blossoms, Hazy Heraldry, and Tribal Moroccan Washable Rugs are just a few of our favorites!
7. You are sensitive to allergens.
As much as we try to dust, vacuum, and deep clean as often as we can, allergens in the home seem to be inevitable. Our washable rugs are low-pile, which limits the collection of dust, pet dander, and pollen. Plus, the fact that they’re also machine washable makes them the most allergy-friendly rug option out there.
8. You’d rather not spend the time (or money!) on a regular professional rug cleanings.
Professional cleaning services can cost hundreds of dollars per session—and we are firm believers that having a clean rug shouldn’t break the bank! Our washable rugs will not only help you save money on multiple cleanings a year, but will also save you time. Just stick your rug into your washer whenever it needs to be cleaned, no planning or disruptions to your daily routine necessary!
