More about Washable Rugs & Washable Area Rugs

Our machine washable line, Recess, is our first foray into this category. This was the culmination of more than a year of product development. We gave our design team a tall task: create an elevated collection that’s machine washable, organic, has a lower price and is higher quality than synthetic, washable rugs on the market. 

The initial reviews we received from customers and press outlets were extremely encouraging, since our team put so much effort into our washable line. Apartment Therapy rated it the best washable rug in the United States. To quote the article, “vintage rug purveyor Revival Rugs recently launched its Recess collection of washable rugs, which quickly made it to the top of our list as the best washable rug on the market. As is expected from Revival, these washable rugs are luxurious and design-forward without costing an arm and a leg.” Our rugs were also top rated by Domino: “It looks like a piece I’d bring into my home before I had to worry about kid and pet stains…no compromise here, in any way. A 10 out of 10. Game changer.” 

Our handmade washable selection is much better for the environment than synthetic alternatives. Unfortunately, micro plastics from polyester washable rugs can shed in the washing machine and enter into our water system, which carries human and aquatic animal health risks. With our organic cotton washable rugs, we actually save water in production and there is a positive carbon impact with organic cotton emitting 46% less C02 than regular cotton. Organic cotton fibers retain their inherent strength and organic cotton farmers don’t use any pesticides. 

Our machine washable area rugs are extremely versatile. We sell them in multiple sizes: traditional area rug sizes as well as machine washable runner rugs. As a result our washable rugs fit most rooms and decor styles. We consider our washable area rugs to be washable kitchen rugs, washable bathroom rugs, washable entryway rugs, washable kids rugs, and washable kitchen rugs. While we don’t consider them washable outdoor rugs, they’re perfect for high-traffic spaces that could experience a spill here and there from the kids and pets we love.

When it's time for a deeper clean, we recommend to machine wash your rug on delicate with 1 TBSP of gentle detergent, line dry afterwards, and iron if you wish. For size 6x9 and above, we recommend using a 60-lb washing machine—the large kind you find at a laundromat—rather than a home washing machine, which is usually 20-25 lbs. Line dry afterwards. If your rug is heavily soiled, we suggest you dry clean it instead of wash.

As with most non-synthetic textiles, natural fiber and color softening will occur after washing. We prefer this lived-in look, but if it's not your thing, we recommend dry cleaning.

Like with all Revival rugs, our washable rugs have free shipping and hassle free returns in the United States.
