Get answers to all of your frequently asked questions, including: How do I clean my play rug? How durable is the Ruggish play rug? Can I use my memory foam play mat outside?

We do not suggest using any type of vacuum or appliance with rotating brushes, asthey WILL cause damage. Strong cleaners, including essential oils, rubbing alcohol and nail polish will strip the material

The best way to clean is with baby wipes, a damp cloth with laundry detergent/ water, dish soap, or mild cleaning solutions such as Method, Mrs Meyer's, or Seventh Generation. 

Hose it down outside for the bigger messes, but please note, the material may be slippery when wet! 

Ruggish play rugs are waterproof and very durable, but they can stainBe careful with marker, pen, paint, pureed carrots, dark berries, tomato sauce or other acidic liquids, as they may not come out.

We have not done formal testing with pets, but sharp objects, such as pet nails, may pierce the material, so it is not recommended. 

The Ruggish Play Rug is a great place to sit and play outside, but it should not be left in direct sunlight for a long period of time, as it could fade.

It is not recommended to leave heavy objects on the play rug, as it may cause a permanent impression.

Absolutely! Ruggish play rugs are a great way to fill a large space. When using more than one, please note that the pattern may not perfectly align.

We always say it depends on the pet.  We have many customers with pets who have shared that general walking or rolling has not been an issue.  If your pet likes to dig and scratch, it could cause damage.

You can definitely put the play rug on top of carpet. The material is dense enough and will stay put (of course, it could vary based on carpet type). It's a great way to avoid carpet stains during those messy infant years!
