If you’re looking for a new rug but have children or pets, consider a washable rug, which makes cleaning up spills or accidents extremely easy. The rugs have two parts: a patterned cover with a water-resistant polyurethane barrier and a rug pad that holds the rug in place. When there’s a big spill, you simply take the cover off the pad and toss it in the wash. “As the owner of an elderly dog that occasionally pees inside, I can easily throw the whole rug in the washing machine, which keeps me from freaking out over occasional accidents,” says Strategist senior writer Liza Corsillo. Sherri Monte, co-owner of the interior-design and home-organization company Elegant Simplicity, says these rugs are “without question the best washable rugs we use.” And right now, Ruggable is offering 20 percent off sitewide until July 25 with the code BDAY23.
