How many times have your rugs been stained with wine or food or they are just dirty.What about pets peeing or pooping on the rug? It is probable that it has happened to all of us seeing that there are approximately 160 million dogs and cats in the United States. This is where a company called Ruggable comes into play. What they have over other r ugs is that they are washable. They have a thin carpet layer made of mainly polyester with a rubber mat underneath.From our research and own experience, these rugs are easy to install and they don’t shift. When it comes to washing them, 3’ X 5’ and 5’ x 7’ rugs fit into the washer nicely. If you have a larger size they can fit depending on the load capacity.In terms of cost, they are comparable to Target and World Market; we paid $338 for ours. In terms of how they feel you will not get a plush, padded option, so try plush or shag-style rugs if that is your preference. As for the environmental impact, these rugs are made from polyester meaning that they derive from petroleum, so this is not an eco-choice. On the other hand, if you can reduce the amount of rugs that you have to replace over time, then less material reduces the overall carbon footprint.The bottom line is that these rugs have been a long awaited choice that will save you money over time. There’s nothing like coming home from a long day or trip to find that your dog left a special present for you.Website: Media
