For about a year I had been eyeballing Ruggable rugs. When I say eyeballing, I mean putting a rug in my online cart probably every three months and then never clicking the checkout button {honestly I could never really get behind the price tag}.

Our very clever dog, Hailey, likes to open our trash drawer and pull out whatever she can eat, constantly leaving garbage and stains all over the runners. After having to replace my kitchen runner at least three times since moving into our house four years ago, I decided to take the plunge and cough up the money for a Ruggable.

I can tell you, my friends and family are happy that I was the guineapig. I promised them an honest review of the rug. Now that I’ve had it for three months and put it through its first wash I’m ready to live up to my promise.

So here it is my friends, my humble opinion on the Ruggable rug.


 

Price Tag

If I didn’t make it obvious before, the price of these fully machine washable rugs is pretty steep {especially if you go for the larger rugs}.


Here the big BUT though. After having to continuously buy new runners because I could never fully get them clean, spending more money on something I can throw in the washing machine and dryer honestly justifies the cost to me AND my husband {which is even better}!


Sometimes they will run offers like this one, which can take the sting out of the cost just a little bit.

You can also download a chrome extension for honey, which will search the internet for the biggest savings and automatically apply them to your shopping cart! Not just with Ruggable but with any website, how cool is that? You can download it for free here! Plus if you use my link, you’ll receive 500 points on your first purchase that you use honey with, which is equal to $5!


Touch and Feel

Since the whole concept of the rug is that it is washable it’s very low pile, thin and lightweight. They are pretty soft too, not fluffy soft like you want to cozy up on it to read a book in front of the fireplace, but it’s soft to the touch. For me, being thin and waterproof is a no brainer in the kitchen.


Now, Ruggable did just release a plusher series you might want to check out if looking for something like that. Here are a few from their website.



 

Versatile

When I mentioned the price tag I neglected to say you are purchasing the cover (rug) and the non-slip rug pad which jacks up the price a little bit. Once you have the pad you can just purchase a replacement cover.

And right now they have some really fun seasonal covers. So, if you like decorating for the holidays or if your design style is as fickle as mine you can switch them out to fit your mood and design or put down another cover while you’re washing the other one.



 

It’s WASHABLE

Wait, have I mentioned it’s washable {tee-hee}?!? Ruggable’s claim-to-fame is that they are fully machine washable rugs, EVERY size.

I just washed mine for the first time this week and it held up great. I followed the washing directions on the cover. It was easy peasy, lemon squeezy! I even left the rug in the dryer overnight. I was worried that I would be totally wrinkled when I pulled it out the next morning, but NOPE it was just like the day it was delivered to my front door!

Before washing the rug I just would spot clean it with soap and water and it worked just fine.


 

Helpers!

Now, this doesn’t have anything to do with the rug itself, but it does have to do with the company.


After I clicked the checkout button, I received my confirmation of purchase also letting me know that there would be longer than a normal delivery window. Considering I was ordering it in the midst of COVID I had expected it because everything had long ship times. And yes, COVID was the reason but it’s because Ruggable shifted some of their resources and started manufacturing masks for critically essential workers. How cool is that!

You can learn about their Project on the Ruggable website.


 

Because the rugs are made out of polyester with a polyurethane water-resistant barrier it makes them perfect for a kitchen, laundry room, or bathroom. I know polyester isn’t typically a fabric we equate to luxury or even a high price tag but I can honestly say the rug is well made and in my humble opinion worth every penny I spent on it.




I am now looking at purchasing a runner for my laundry room. I think it will be a perfect addition to my little laundry room facelift.

I was not paid for this review, just my humble opinion. If you're wondering I purchased the Hendesi Heriz Abalone Rug & Pad
