Having recently gone rug shopping, I found myself wondering how to properly wash my new living room rug. Sure, the one in my bathroom fits nicely in the washing machine, but this larger piece definitely couldn’t.
Without a steam cleaner, I started to think about the dirt and dust that would surely be trapped in my beautiful 5×7. Ruggable solves that problem. Its stylish, 2-piece rug systems are lightweight, machine-washable, and stain-resistant—everything traditional rugs are not.
Great for parents and pet owners, the brand has proved its worth in every home, garnering a 1.5M social community and features in notable media outlets like NBC, New York Magazine, and Forbes.
What will I cover in this Ruggable rugs review? All the key elements of the brand and its products, along with feedback, FAQ, and more. Let’s jump right in.
Overview of Ruggable
Ruggable started with a simple idea. In 2010, Jeneva Bell had the thought to create a washable and more livable carpet rug. After a few different approaches, she created and patented this genius 2-piece rug system. You don’t have to be in the over 30 club to appreciate this one, though I’ve noticed my love for home-building has noticeably increased over the past few years.
Working with certified suppliers in Germany, Mexico, Korea, and China, Ruggable rugs are made-to-order and packaged in Los Angeles and Chicago.
Though I immediately realized the difference they would make in my life, I learned that Ruggable washable rugs are unique to the rug and carpet industry in more ways than I thought:
- Innovative 2-piece system
- Cling effect technology
- Made with sustainable materials
- Machine-washable covers
- 2018 Winner of the NBC Today Show’s “Next Big Thing”
How Ruggable Works
If those points piqued your interest like they did mine, here’s where I found it gets really interesting. Using cling effect technology, Ruggable washable rugs use a patented 2-piece system. What does that mean, exactly? The bottom layer is a non-slip pad that grips the floor and acts as anchor, then an inter-changeable cover lays over top.
This innovative technology keeps the cover securely attached to the pad until you remove it in order to change or wash it. Covers are completely replaceable and my favorite part: they come in a wide variety of colors and designs. Love swapping up your home decor? I think you’ll fall in love with Ruggable’s collection.
And since they’re made of 95% recycled polyester, Ruggable covers do not absorb liquid. That means they’re both water and stain resistant. So smart. They’re also hypoallergenic and, I’ll stress this again, machine-washable.
In the sections ahead, I’ll lay all the details down. But since no Ruggable rugs review would be complete without a thoughtful list of positives and negatives, you’ll find those below first.

My favorite part about rug shopping is digging through colors. Ruggable has a ton, and in fact, you can even sort your search by color to streamline the process.
While the top drop-down menu offers popular color combinations, the left side bar breaks it down even further by providing the number of Ruggable designs offered in specific colors.
I’ve found this tool to be incredibly helpful. The brand groups its rugs into 6 color categories:

Ruggable Rugs Review: What Do Customers Think?
It’s easy for me to get caught up in colors and patterns, so it’s important that I hear from customers before making my final decision. Turning to ruggable.com, I found that almost every Ruggable rugs review featured on is positive and rated 5 stars.
Here’s a sum-up of ratings for some of its best-sellers:
- Kaden Steel Blue Rug: 4.7/5 stars, 30 reviews
- Kamran Hazel Rug: 4.8/5 stars, 2,672 reviews
- Sarrah Blue Quartz: 4.7/5 stars, 893 reviews
- Jonathan Adler Ink Drop: 4.7/5 stars, 409 reviews
The feedback provided by shoppers is usually short and sweet, “Great” and “I love my Ruggable rug” were common amongst reviews. Feeling generally good about what I’d found, I set out in search of more.
When scouring the internet for customer opinions on Ruggable washable rugs, I saw plenty of good, but as to be expected with any brand, also some bad. I have included a sample for the Zinnia Blue 3×5 rug on Amazon just below in this Ruggable rugs review.
Rated 4.3/5 stars by 54 shoppers, I found that the majority of positive reviews came from parents and pet-owners who lauded the rugs for being durable and easy to wash. One Ruggable Rugs review read:
“To me it has an indoor rug look with an outdoor rug feel on top but cushiony when you step on it. I love it and so does the dog. It’s his spot to lay if he’s not on his dog bed.”
Dog approved? What more could I ask for? Leaning in to other comments, I learned that some included issues with the rugs. Things like trouble replacing the cover, texture, and fraying popped up from time to time, but overall, weren’t all that common.
Hopping off of Amazon, I bumped into a Ruggable rugs review by 3 HGTV editors on HGTV.com. After putting them to the test, they all rated the products favorably. In answer to the question, “Is it really washable?” one wrote:
Yes! And perhaps even more surprising, it does fit in a standard washing machine. I tested two sizes: 5’x7′ and 3’x5′, and both easily fit (separately) into my top-loading washer.”
Getting a 5×7 in a washer is no easy feat, so I applaud Ruggable for its life-friendly designs. All in all, the feedback for this brand is great and based on customer feedback, I believe these rugs are more than worth it.
Ruggable Washing Instructions
After hearing from both the brand and customers, I learned that Ruggable covers and pads are easy to clean and the brand is truthful in its claims.
Rug covers are machine-washable, though, I should note that products sized 2.5’x7’, 2.5’x10’ and 3’x5’ fit into a 2.2 cubic foot washing machine. Products sized 5’x7’, 6’x9’ and 8’x10’ fit into a 3.8 cubic foot washer.
Below, I’ll take you through their simple instructions for cleaning your Ruggable washable rug cover.
Wash in cold water setting
Use a mild and non-bleach detergent – otherwise the rug may stain
Once clean, place in dryer on low heat or hang to air dry
Do not use fabric softener as this can result in surface-flattening of the rug
Ruggable washable rug pads can be spot-cleaned by hand using these steps:
Remove all solids from the pad’s surface
Soak up excess liquid with cloth or towel
If required, gently wipe pad’s surface with warm soapy water
Hang to air dry
For extra precaution, I learned that a natural compound like Borax or EC3 is safe to use on the Ruggable washable rug system – without any worry of compromising the rug’s integrity.
When vacuuming, I saw it recommended that you use low-suction settings and avoid heavy beater brushes or similarly abrasive attachments. Ruggable also states to avoid using autonomous robotic vacuuming systems on a Ruggable rug.
