These Machine-Washable Rugs Are the Answer to Life's Messes

Cleaning just got so much easier.

Machine-washable rugs

Area rugs can really pull a room together, but cleaning them can sometimes be a challenge, especially if you don't own a carpet cleaner. Sure, you can hire a professional or rent a machine to do it yourself, but there's another alternative: Buy a rug you can just toss in your washing machine instead. Yes, those exist—and yes, it is life-changing. Seriously, imagine a world in which you spill something on your rug and and can just blot the stain, pick it up, pop it in the wash on a gentle cycle, and hang it out to dry, all stress-free.

Every rug on this list is machine washable, so they're perfect for homes with pets or kids, or really, anyone who's worried about accidental spills and messes. And as a bonus, many of these rugs are on the more affordable side, so you can find the perfect rug that suits your style, your budget, and your cleaning routine. It's as easy as doing a load of laundry (and you don't even have to do any folding afterwards!)
