No one knows about properly cleaning kitchen rugs, but everyone knows that they are essential for keeping their kitchens clean. Rugs for both kitchen and bathroom share equal importance as both of them are very much in use. Cleaning them, however, is not difficult at all. And if you clean them with proper care, they can be re-used. Moreover, if they are hygienically cleaned, it will save you from several diseases. Most of the rugs are washable in washing machines. They always have a tag on them; and if the tag says that it can be cleaned in a washing machine, it solves a lot of hassle. However, there are some other types that cannot be washed in a washing machine. For such types of rugs, a laundry treatment is essential. A laundry wash pre-treats the stains with a stain remover and cleans them completely. This is not possible in a washing machine.
Shopping for Rugs: Shopping for a kitchen rug can be both easy and difficult. For starters, if you are unsure regarding the color of the rug at the first glance then it is best you carry a shade along with you for your shopping. In that way you can be sure that it will fit in with the color scheme of your kitchen. Next, if you want a rug for a specific area of the kitchen, like before the oven, refrigerator or the sink, then take the measurements. Also, if available, and though a bit more expensive, try getting water proof variety rugs for the kitchen, because with so much of activity either water or some other food item likes sauces and gravy will spill into it at some point of time, and then it will have to be washed.

The more durable and stain resistant your rug is, then the better it will be in the long run. Each time you wash your rug, it will come out looking as good as brand new. There is one thing you may want to watch for when washing your rug however. With the dark, deep colors in most of these rugs, there is a tendency for the colors to run.
