Lamontagne. Kitchen Rugs. October 06th , 2017.
The volume of water which rugs can soak up is immense, with the consequences being a rug thats heavy enough to cause damage to your machine and void the manufacturers guarantee. The trend currently finding favor with home makers is for pre-shrunk washable cotton kitchen rugs, but dirt and grease are much more readily absorbed by cotton and other natural fibers, which obviously means that they will need to be laundered more frequently. Synthetic fibers generally repel spills, or simply let them penetrate slowly enough for you to be able to wipe them off before any damage is done. Furthermore, you will not see the fading often associated with frequent washing. Color and pattern have an impact on frequency of washing too, since darker colors and complicated patterns can disguise all kinds of stains. Obviously all rugs will need to be cleaned now and again though, as no color or pattern will reduce the effects of germs or smells.
When you are looking for rugs online make sure that they are made of a material that will not stain easily. You might also want to consider buying a colour that will not show stains up - so unfortunately that means no white! The Internet is great when you want to find a bargain, but you also need to remember that you wont physically see the rug before you buy so you need to make sure that you are 100% certain of the size of rug you need as well as the style and colour. If you are going to be cooking a lot in your kitchen then it might be worth getting several washable kitchen rugs so that when one is being washed you can use another one.
Kitchen rugs can be a great solution for a kitchen that has a worn or damaged floor. But these rugs are not only for decoration or to hide imperfections, they can also help to keep people from slipping on the floors when they are wet and also add comfort when you are standing at the counter for long periods of time cooking or preparing foods. Rugs are most often placed at the door when you come in, in front of the sink, in front of the refrigerator, and in front of the oven. Choosing a kitchen rug can be a challenge as there are many styles shapes and colors to choose from. Before you go shopping for your rug, its a good idea to bring a color swatch from your kitchen so that you can be sure to get something that matches exactly.
However, your kitchen rugs should be more than stylish. They should be easy to clean and maintain and hold up under the heavy traffic they may encounter. Make sure the rug you are selecting is machine washable and stain resistant, they are two key features you will want to check out. Also make sure that your rug comes with a nonslip bottom on it to ensure that you will not slip and fall on it. If it doesnt have a nonslip bottom, you may want to consider purchasing a rug pad, this will serve the same purpose. 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. It would be in your best interest to wash them separately from the rest of your laundry, especially for the first several washes.
