Wash our shag covers in the washing machine using a permanent press setting or a regular cycle with cold water and add bleach to brighten it up like new and help prevent tangling or matting. Dry the shag cover in the dryer on medium heat.
The rug pad can be spot treated with a household disinfectant that does not contain bleach. To thoroughly clean, saturate the rug pad in warm soapy water, rinse with clean water, and hang to dry.
What is it made of?
Our shag covers are made of modacrylic, a synthetic fiber with natural flame resistance. We do not add flame resistant chemicals to any of our products, mainly because they are toxic, but also because they would wash out after repeated washings. Instead, we use materials that naturally meet or exceed flame resistant testing standards.
The rug pad is made of polyester (95% recycled fiber). The Cling Effect™ texture is created by heating the surface (think Crème Brûlée dessert). The nonslip backing is made of Thermoplastic Resin (TPR) a latex-free synthetic material that is commonly used in yoga mats.
How does it work?
Ruggable uses patented Cling Effect™ Technology to keep the cover attached to the rug pad. The underside of the cover grips to the top surface of the rug pad (think about how Velcro® works to keep materials together). You can hold a Ruggable upside down and shake it and the cover will not come off. You have to manually pull it off when it's time to wash it. The strength of the Cling Effect™ does not wear off over time. Even after several washings, the cover will grip to the rug pad just like it did the first time.
