Can You Put a Rug in the Washing Machine?
This question is probably front and center on your mind, considering you’ve found your way to this page! The answer, of course, is yes! However, there are some things to note before you start throwing that expensive area rug into your washing machine all willy-nilly!
Yes, rugs can be washed in the washing machine, just like your towels, clothing, and other around-the-house items made of fabric. That said, only certain rugs are able to be washed this way.
Small area rugs that are made of cotton or synthetic fibers can be machine washed. Put them in the same load as your towels, and wash cold water on the gentle cycle. This will help keep the fabric looking new with ease. However, do not wash these rugs frequently via the washing machine, as eventually the process will erode any rubber non-slip backing and cause it to shed and break down. Also, avoid using the dryer for most area rugs - especially ones made of synthetic materials - as the heat can work to breakdown the fibers themselves.
No matter what, always check the tags attached to a rug for the manufacturer’s instructions on how to wash and clean a rug. Follow the guidelines as best you can to ensure the item remains looking fresh and new.
