Even if you don’t have kids, bringing home rugs of any shape or size can be nerve-wracking. The thought of spilling red wine on a white rug, let alone any color, just sounds like a disaster waiting to happen. While spot treating sometimes does the trick if you act fast enough or the stain isn’t too severe, it’s never guaranteed you can bring it back to life. However, there are machine washable rugs that take care of those worries. Yes, even some large area rugs can be tossed in the washer!
