Washable Rugs + Hopeful Missions

A couple months ago the girls were playing on our rug and I asked my husband, “How do you wash a rug? Wait, why has no one made a washable rug?!” We had one 5×7 rug and an entire house of hardwood floors, yet somehow the girls really only seemed to spill stuff on this rug!  Ok, the Mr. and I have spilled many a cup of coffee as well.. But! The idea of a washable rug seemed so genius to me!  I ended up googling washable rugs and found Lorena Canals! I had actually seen some of their lovely rugs on instagram, but wasn’t aware of their quality, their social mission or that they were WASHABLE!!! With a 4 year old, a 3 year old, an almost 1 year old, and a mom & dad prone to spilling many a beverage, this was like, YAAAAASSSS!
