Question:

Is it good to dry your bathroom rugs?

Your bathrooom rugs can you dry them in the dryer? or let them air dry?

Answer:

That's the $64,000 question. If you wash the rugs and allow them to air dry, they won't look fluffy. They'll look a little matted. You can fluff them a little with a clean hair brush after they've dried or run them through the dryer on Fluff...but to make the rugs look really fluffy and pretty, you'll need to dry them in your dryer. If you dry the rugs in your dryer, the rubber backing will break down. It's a Catch-22. So your choices: 1. Wash them in Cold water and let them air dry. Then fluff them with a hair brush...or run them on the no heat option. This will preserve the rubber backing, but the rugs won't be as fluffy as they looked new. - or - 2. Wash them and dry them in the dryer. This will make the rugs beautifully fluffy, but the backing will come off in pieces. Good luck. -

Wash them once in awhile and hang to dry, hopefully outside in the sun. The constant wet/dry cycle could start a bacteria problem. The latex backing on most bath rugs, eventually falls apart, faster when exposed to heat from dryers, or even just moisture. Also the latex can discolor vinyl floors if left down, say the toilet rugs or sink rugs. I much prefer the nonlatex rugs.......they last longer.

Wash them, then let them air dry. Put them in the dryer for about 5 min. to fluff them.

Either way. Whichever way you prefer.
