How to wash floor mats in the washing machine
Floor mats are a great way to protect your floors from dirt and scratches. They are also stylish, simple, and easy to maintain, but only if you take the time to properly clean them. Washing floor mats in a washing machine is not complicated and it’s a lot more effective than handwashing them. In this blog post, we’ll explore how to wash floor mats in the washing machine.
Shake Out Dust from the Mat
The first step in washing floor mats or logo mats in a washing machine is to shake out any excess dust or dirt that may have collected on its surface. You can do this with your hands or by using a vacuum cleaner with an upholstery attachment. Vacuuming your mat before washing it will help prevent dirt from getting trapped inside the fibers of the material during cleaning and keep your machine safe from damage.
Put The Mat Inside the Machine
Once you’ve shaken out as much dust as possible from your mat, it’s time to put it inside the washing machine. Make sure you use only cold water for this process since hot water can cause damage to delicate materials like jute or sisal mats. Moreover, make sure to add just a small amount of detergent just enough so that suds appear when agitating the water with your hands.
When it comes time to add detergent to your washing machine, try not to go overboard. Too much detergent can make matters worse by leaving behind residue which could attract more dirt later down the line. Instead, opt for using light laundry detergents specifically designed for delicate such as wool or silk clothing.
Choose Wash Cycle
Now that everything is set up correctly within your machine selecting the type of wash cycle should be next. Most modern washers come preset with specific cycles ideal for certain fabrics these are ideal options when cleaning carpets & floor mats. However, if uncertain about the fabric types involved choose “delicates” mode & select between medium or low temperatures depending on setup (low works best). Additionally include extra spin cycles when done so that most moisture contained within carpets themselves gets removed easily & quickly.
Dry The Mat
Depending on how large/thick the rugs/mats are, they may need extra drying time outside. Normally, air-drying either indoors or outdoors should suffice since heat/direct sunlight may still cause damage even though rugs might look perfectly dry at surface level (especially important if made of natural fibers).
Washing floor mats in the washing machine isn’t difficult if you know what you’re doing. First, make sure you shake out any excess dust before putting it inside; then add a small amount of detergent and choose an appropriate wash cycle. When finished simply hang it outdoors (or indoors) until completely dry. By following these steps above anybody would be able to take their old-looking mat instantly somewhere new & exciting.
