whats the best way to wash a rug?

Answer:

You can wash the rugs in your washing machine. Regular detergent, fabric softener optional. (I never use it for rugs.) If you're worried about the rubber backing, use the Cold water option, and let them air dry. However...here's the caveat: 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. -
Wet the rugs, outside, with warm water, whip up a couple of drops of dish soap in a gallon container, brush the rugs with a wooden handle brush, and then rinse with the garden hose to remove the soil and the soap. Allow the rugs to drip dry and bask in the sun.
You can wash them forever in the washing machine as long as you do NOT use bleach, and do NOT put them in the dryer.
