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 learn exactly what our washable rugs can do, how to care for them, and to see how gorgeous they look inside homes.
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).
What do parents (including pet parents!) have to say about their washable rugs? We’ll let them tell you! Sophie of @housetohome_design says, “With having two little ones (both baby and pup), there are constantly messes and spills happening—especially at our kitchen table. How amazing is it that you can throw this rug into the washer to clean it, and voilà, good as new!” Jenna of @jonathanandjenna had a similar reaction: “When Rugs USA told me they had new washable rugs, this mama was happy and shocked. You mean I don’t need to lay blankets down over my rugs anymore?” No more blankets, Jenna, show off your gorgeous rugs!
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.
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.”
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 them as one piece—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.)
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.
Loyda of @lacasasunrise says it best: “Inevitable spills are no match for a quick wash cycle. My hands are full, and I’m so glad this is one less thing I have to worry about keeping spotless!”
