If your house is anything like mine, you haverules in place to keep your rugs and carpets free from kid-damage, but no one ever follows them (partner included). Since getting weekly professional steam cleanings isn't exactly budget-friendly, it might be worth investing in some family friendly machine washable rugs. Just imagine how freeing it would be to just shrug your shoulders and toss the rug into the washing machine the next time you find a half-eaten red Ring Pop lying on it.

Washable rugs have come a long way, and you can find something in just about any style from shag, to Persian, to faux fur, to Aztec, and more. There are some really fun options for your kids' rooms or the playroom, as well as some traditional styles that will probably fit right in with your decor in the rest of the house.
