The Dash and Albert rug in my downstairs bathroom was starting to look a little dirty. Since this bathroom is right off the kitchen, it gets a lot of use. Don’t ask me why I would choose a rug with white stripes for this spot…but it’s small and relatively inexpensive, so I took my chances.
Today, I’d like to share how I clean my Dash and Albert rug…
(It’s a little hard to tell in the photo, but trust me, it’s dirty.)
The rug is made from polypropylene and according to Dash and Albert’s website, these rugs can be hosed, scrubbed and bleached.
Apparently, they are not meant for machine washing or drying, though.
Since today is a beautiful, sunny day, I thought is was a good time to wash the rug.
First Rosie inspected the rug for me.
Then I took some Oxi Magic, some water and a sponge and just scrubbed the rug.
Afterwards, I rinsed it and hung it in the sun to dry.
As you can see, it looks pretty clean.
And Rosie approves.
I flipped over the back of the rug so you can see that the front is now just as clean as the back. I can definitely tell the difference and I could actually see the dirt coming off as I was scrubbing it.
And that’s how I clean my Dash and Albert rug! Just one more cleaning project to cross of the list!
If you want to see how this rug and all my other outdoor rugs have lasted over the years, be sure to read how my indoor-outdoor rugs have held up.
Do you have any Dash and Albert rugs?
Have you tried to clean yours yet?
