Ormazd. Kitchen Rugs. October 09th , 2017.
Another thing to keep in mind when you buy a country kitchen rug is the size of your room. You wouldnt want one that is too bog or too small - just the right sized rug. You can choose from different fabrics and styles such as nylon, cotton or wool or a combination of these, in fact there is something called woven rag rugs that are best suited for use in kitchens. Select the one that can be maintained easily - machine washable probably. Also be careful while washing - machine or by hand - rubbing causes some colours to run and this may stain other clothes.
You also need to take care of colors when you are washing these rugs. If you wash both the light and dark colors together, there are chances that their color would get mixed and result in a spoiled look for both types. Dark colors must be washed at a low warm, delicate temperature less than 90 degrees Fahrenheit and wash the light colors at a temperature higher than 105 degree Fahrenheit. For efficient cleaning, dont forget to rinse kitchen rugs when washing. If your kitchen rugs are unusually delicate, rinse with care and dont make their fibers strip off. And also, you need to hang these rugs for drying instead of tumble drying them.
As has already been discussed, kitchen area rugs arent just there for decorative reasons and do have their uses. Clearly, time spent trying to wash and dry your rug is going to mean a period of some inconvenience, and its usually during the colder months when mud and dirt is most likely to be trodden in that its hardest to find room for large rugs to dry. Do take the time to check that label to make sure a rug is machine washable before you buy, and youll save yourself a lot of hassle in the long run. Its sometimes tempting to put a non-machine washable rug into the washing machine, and this must be avoided at all costs, even if you feel replacement will be your only remaining choice because the rug has become so dirty anyway.
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.
