How To Wash Your Bathroom Rugs and Mats | House Cleaning Woodbridge

The bath mat that we use in our homes are available in two types. The first type of bathroom rugs or mats is which we put outside our washroom that are made of soft fabric, plush fabric that can absorb the water and it may also have a rubber backing underneath that helps you to prevent slippage on the bathroom floor during the house cleaning. Inside the tub you can use the mats that are made up of rubber. Tub mats help you to prevent any slips in the tub, preventing minor to serious injuries if you fall. You can clean the bath mats during the house cleaning process with the laundry detergents and then dry them on the clothswire.


Follow few tips by House Cleaning Woodbridge to clean your bathroom rugs and mats during the house cleaning process.

Step 1:Observe The Label

Most of the bath rugs or maths are having labels at the front or at the back that give you clear guidelines about the do and don’ts for care and maintenance during the house cleaning. Read the label before you start the house cleaning. Depending on the type of the rugs or mats the cleaning methods may be different as well.

Step 2: Floor Bath Mat

  • Try to wash your bath mats on the regular basis in order to avoid the debris, mud and buildup of mildew and germs
