Ruggable Just Launched Washable Outdoor Rugs That You’ll Want to Use Indoors, Too
It’s finally summertime, but outdoor activities are looking a little different this year. While many restaurants, bars, and public spaces are still closed due to COVID-19 concerns, your home’s outdoor space is more important than ever—and that means it should be as functional as possible. If you’ve previously just popped down a chair or two on your balcony/patio/yard and called it a day, allow me to introduce you to Ruggable’s new collection of washable outdoor rugs.
Launched on June 4, the collection joins Ruggable’s inventory of stylish and completely washable indoor rugs. If you’re as skeptical as I once was, fear not: These rugs actually live up to the hype and are absolutely worth buying. While pretty much all rugs can be spot cleaned or steam cleaned, Ruggable’s can, yup, be thrown in the washing machine. The trick is the two-piece system: All Ruggable rugs come with a rug pad and cover that are attached by velcro tabs. When it’s cleaning day, you just take the cover off and throw it in any regular-sized washing machine. (Check out this helpful YouTube video to get a full demo.)
The outdoor rugs work the same way. They’re even more durable than the indoor options, with a polyester weave and a polyurethane water-resistant barrier. Not only do they repel water, but they’re stain- and fade-resistant as well. As anyone who’s purchased outdoor rugs before knows, one of the biggest problems is fading, especially if your outdoor area is in a sunny spot. Alternatively, if you’re dealing with fading indoors or just want a seriously durable area rug, nothing’s stopping you from putting one of these inside your home, too.
And since you’re wondering, yes, the outdoor rugs are actually stylish. Personally, I wish some of these choices had been around when I chose my own Ruggable rug, but alas. There are 47 designs total, ranging across the color and design spectrum, and 6 sizes, starting with 2.5’x7′ and ending with 8’x10′. Prices start at $119 for 3’x5′, compared to $109 for the regular indoor rugs.
