When the only alternative to hiring a professional to clean your rug is figuring out to wash it by hand yourself, it’s tempting to turn a blind eye to the dirt and grime that’s accumulated over time. Wouldn’t life be easier if cleaning your home were as easy as, say, tossing a load of laundry into the wash? News flash: It can be.

Machine washable rugs aren’t new. But chic machine washable rugs? Those are. Some of our favorite brands now carry stylish buys that can be quickly tossed in the washer and tumble dried at the first sight of stain. Forget everything you knew about cleaning the old-fashioned way: Here are eight statement-worthy mats, rugs, and runners you can wash on laundry day.

While this joyous rug would look right at home in a colorful playroom or bold nursery, its prismatic rays have the power to brighten any home office or master bedroom.

Handwoven from freshly spun, recycled fiber, set this sunny yellow mat at the foot of the bed so you can start every morning off on the right foot.

As terrazzo continues to enjoy its major moment in the design spotlight, ride out the trend by bringing this speckled gem of a rug into your home.

If you’re wavering between a neutral base and embracing the rainbow, this vibrant mix of graphic symbols against a cream backdrop offers the best of both worlds.

Who said art was only for the walls? Skip the gallery and go for a glorified landing pad by the front door with this printed mat designed by mpgmb.

Round rugs are more versatile than you think. When placed in tight living quarters or under a round dining table, this Scandinavian-inspired stunner will show its four-cornered counterparts up.

Sink your toes into this plush pick without stressing over food stains or wine spills—they’ll come out in a flash.

Pave the way for a smooth transition from floor to carpet by letting these happy stripes lead the way.

A shining example of how a fringe rug can be sophisticated, this textured rug sets a bold precedent for dimension.

Care tip: Most machine-washable rugs should be washed separately on delicate (30 degrees maximum temperature) with light soap and no softeners. Tumble-dry on a low temperature or air-dry if instructed.
