Bathroom rugs are commonly found in two types; they are rugs for outside the bath tub and rugs inside the bath tub. Floor rugs are made from plush fabric and used to absorb water and prevent slipping on the bathroom floor, while bath tub mats are made from rubber and used to prevent slipping on the tub. The presence of the rugs may not be really noticeable, but everyone should take a good care of them. One of the ways is to wash them regularly. If you are going to wash your rugs, first thing first, read the label. Rugs may have different washing methods, and thus pay attention to each label before doing the job. Washing Floor Bathroom Rugs To clean the floor rug, first off, you can simply lift the rug then shake it carefully to remove the dust. This is done as an early treatment toward the rug, and to make you easier doing the washing. After that, you can put the rug into the washer. For plain rug, hot water is okay, while cold water is advisable for colored one. Finally, the rug can be put into the dryer. Note that the dryer will work only for fabric-made rug, while the one with rubber back is better to be hung under direct sunlight. Brush it lightly if everything is clear. Washing Bath Tub Mats Washing the tub bath mats is as simple as cleaning the bath tub itself. When you are cleaning up your bath tub, you can also do the work for the mat by scrubbing it gently with bathroom cleaner and brush. If one side is cleared, flip it then do the other side. After the scrubbing is done, rinse it with water then leave it dry on the clothesline under direct sunlight, not in the dryer for even the lowest heat.
