While the idea of a kitchen rug making for a clean kitchen might seem contradictory, it can be. That is why the kind of area rug one needs to get should be a washable one. Imagine a non washable area rug for your kitchen where stains, spills and all kinds of dirt gather and collect! Kitchen rugs are machine washable which is quite a big plus for those kitchen rug owners who dont have the time or patience in cleaning and drying a rug manually. It is advisable not to put the rug in a dryer as the rug tends to unravel when subjected to the heat of the dryer. Also, stains, especially, wine stains need to be washed off immediately to prevent them from being a permanent stain in your rug.
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.
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.
In case you have a very ethnic or an elaborately themed kitchen in Italian or Victorian style, then it is possible that you would want a very decorative rug to go with the theme and it is likely to be of a delicate and expensive material like wool or linen. In such cases, brush the rug regularly with a soft brush to prevent the accumulation of dirt. Then air it regularly and leave it in the sunlight weekly for natural disinfection. If at all you have to clean it, than use a very mild detergent to wash off the stain.
Your kitchen is one room that you may have a hard time keeping clean. This is where a lot of people walk, and of course, where a lot of people in your home will eat.
