If you've ever deep-cleaned a rug by hand or sprung for a professional carpet cleaner, you've probably also wished that you could just throw your rug in the washing machine. Ruggable rugs let you do just that: All of the brand's rugs are entirely machine washable.
Ruggable rugs come as a two piece set with a non-slip rug pad and a top layer that attaches with a Velcro-like grip. For constant pet or kid messes, it's easy to remove the top layer and put it in the washing machine and dryer. Based on our extensive research into washable rugs, we found that many rugs advertise as "washable," but that doesn't mean they're machine-washable like Ruggable, which clinched the top spot in our machine washable rugs tests.
Why we love Ruggable rugs
✔️Machine washable: First and foremost, the top layer of the rug can easily be removed to be thrown in the washing machine and dryer. In our Lab evaluations, the rug did not shrink or show changes in appearance after multiple wash cycles.
✔️Kid- and pet-friendly: Reviewers rave that Ruggable rugs are perfect for homes with messy little ones and pets. No matter who is having an accident, it's easy and quick to clean up pet and kid messes. "With three small kids and a dog, our throw rugs get trashed. Then I discovered Ruggable," says Meaghan Murphy, Content Director of Woman's Day. "You legit roll it up and toss it in the wash. Bonus: The patterns and size options are endless."
✔️Unbeatable selection: Ruggable rugs are available in a wide variety of sizes, including runners, 8’x10’, 6’x9’, 5’x7’, and 3’x5’ to fit every space in your home. It’s easy to shop by color or style with an impressive selection of options like bohemian, floral, and geometric styles, and even Disney motifs that perfect for kids' rooms. Ruggable is one of the only brands to offer washable shag rugs, which are known for collecting dust and dirt due to the high pile. They’re super soft according to online reviewers and are available in white and grey in a variety of sizes.
✔️Easy-to-swap styles: Once you have the rug pad, you can purchase different top layers to change up the room’s appearance as often as you like. It's more affordable than buying a whole new rug.
How to clean a Ruggable rug
For day-to-day cleaning, you should vacuum your rug to remove pet hair, dirt, and dust without washing. If you spill or a pet has an accident, you should throw the top layer of the rug in the washing machine right away. The rug is also dryer-safe, but some reviewers note that larger rugs take a while to dry. We recommend to only launder them when you absolutely have to in order to prevent wear and tear to keep the rug looking brand new.
Is Ruggable worth it?
If you want ultimate ease of use, we say yes, Ruggable is worth it. That doesn't mean it comes without flaws, though:
Thinner feel: Because there are two separate layers, Ruggable feels thinner than a traditional rug. The top layer is low-pile and lightweight, which is what allows it to be machine washable.
Curling on edges: In our Lab evaluations, we found that the rug edges curled up a bit after washing. This is generally common for area rugs, though.
Return policy: Ruggable only accepts returns of unused products, so you can’t test it out or wash it before returning. Products can be returned for a full refund, but you’ll have to pay the return shipping fees. Ruggable does not accept exchanges and all sample swatches are final sale.
Bottom line: If you are prone to spills or stains on your rugs, Ruggable washable rugs are an excellent solution. We love that they have styles and sizes perfect for every room of the house from the mudroom to the living room.
