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.
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.
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.
