Each year, as October 31st nears, most children have only one thing on their minds: Halloween. While our little ones search for the perfect costume and daydream about the pillowcase full of candy that they’ll bring home at the end of the holiday, parents may be preoccupied with another thought: just how many little sneakers will be tracking mud up to the front door this Halloween?
Now, we know you’re just as excited about costumes and candy as your little ones are. But, we also know that with any holiday comes a valid amount of stress about tidying up your home both before and after guests arrive. Halloween in particular is a holiday centered around doorbells ringing and the coming and going of several eager children with their trick or treat bags held wide open. It’s almost inevitable that your entryway rug may fall victim to the dirt and debris that little feet may leave behind.
Fortunately, Tumble has the best washable rug solution for you!
Tumble’s washable rugs are made with two lines of defense against stains: a unique spillproof material and a machine washable structure. Tumble’s hypoallergenic polyester material forces liquid spills to bead up on top of the rug, rather than sink into and stain the fabric. As a result, wiping away surface-level spills could not be easier!
But, in an instance like Halloween night, wiping away small spills and messy footprints in between each trick or treater isn’t very plausible. After all, you want to enjoy your time passing out candy to all those smiling faces rather than worrying about wiping up messes! Tumble’s machine washable rug structure is the perfect remedy.
The thin rug design easily detaches from the cushioned rug pad underneath and can be thrown into your washing machine at the end of the night. One delicate cycle with standard laundry detergent (free of bleach or fabric softener) later, and your Tumble will look brand new!
At Tumble, our goal is to make caring for your washable rugs a breeze, that way you can focus on the moments that truly matter in life — like how you’re going to convince your little ones that they don’t need to eat all of their candy on Halloween night. So, if you’re looking for a new, kid-friendly washable rug for your entryway this fall, here are our top eight picks.
