A rug you can put in the washing machine. Hold up, what? Yes, at Kukoon Rugs we have a number of collections of machine washable rugs.
We know, it’s a lot to take in. Let us answer some of the most asked questions around Washable Area Rugs.
WHY WOULD I WANT TO WASH MY RUG?
Spillages, kids, dogs and general wear and tear can cause your rug to look worn over time. The thought of getting down on your knees and scrubbing your rug to get stains away really doesn't appeal, right?
Instead, fold up your rug with the pile facing out and pop it into your machine for a squeaky clean rug which will look good as new. That's the beauty of washable area rugs, totally hassle free.
HOW TO WASH WASHABLE RUGS
Firstly, give your rug a shake to get rid of as much dirt and grit as possible. We recommend doing this outdoors. Then, fold your rug up, pile facing out and place it inside your washing machine. To wash your washable area rug, we recommend using a 30°C wash on a cold, delicate cycle with a mild, non-bleach detergent.
See below our recommended washing machine load sizes depending on the size of your rug.
CAN YOU PUT WASHABLE RUGS IN THE DRYER?
No, do not place your washable area rug in the dryer as this can cause shrinkage and damage the backing. Instead, we recommended air drying your washable rug.
HOW DO I DRY MY WASHABLE RUG?
It's really simple. Either place it outside to air dry or hang it over the clothes line. Be sure your rug is completely dry before placing it back on your floor. A damp rug may be susceptible to mould and rot. Once fully dry, you can place your rug back in your room and enjoy the freshness.
