These Machine-Washable Rugs Just Made Life So Much Easier
One of the biggest complaints about rugs is how difficult they are to clean. Vacuuming really only gets the dirt on the surface, and sometimes not even all of it. Steaming is an effective way to deep clean, but it’s a long and often tedious process. So what’s a gal to do? Well, there’s finally a solution. Designer Lorena Canals has created a rug that’s actually machine washable. You can rejoice, because that means no more spot treatments or ruined (read: wine-stained) rugs.
The rugs, which were initially developed for nurseries and kids’ rooms, can be thrown in a standard home washing machine and easily cleaned whenever the need arises. They’re made ethically in India using non-toxic dyes and high-quality materials like 100 percent natural cotton. The best part? Some of the proceeds from the rugs go to charitable efforts for children in India, funding several schools and a nursery.
With tons of trendy designs like Berber, galaxy, palm, geometric, terrazzo, and tie-dye, the rugs can be used anywhere in your home — and not just the nursery! They also come in several sizes and shapes, including round, and even some specialty shapes like a heart or leaf. Prices start at $129, and these beauties are available in over 30 countries, including the US.
Head over to Lorena Canals to view the entire collection, and be sure to check out their washable cushions and plenty of other gorgeous, non-washable rugs too.
