 Caring For Your Hug Rug / Hug Rug Sense

All our Hug Rugs are made using only top quality materials. They are easy to care for and our cotton Hug Rugs get more absorbent with every wash.


Please follow the instructions below when caring for your Hug Rug or Hug Rug Sense. Only wash the Hug Rug when necessary.

  • New Hug Rugs may shed excess cotton, this is normal and will stop once it has been brushed a few times or washed.
  • To save water ? allow mud and dirt to dry and then simply brush it away.
  • To give the rug a longer life place it in a cotton pillow case, machine wash on a quick cotton wash at 30ºC with drum at a low spin speed.
  • Remove any excess cotton, mud and any other debris before washing as best as possible by brushing/hoovering your Hug Rug. 
  • Excess cotton may arise in filter ? so check filter on washing machine regularly.
  • Do not use biological washing detergent as this may fade the colour.
  • Do not use fabric conditioner as this will reduce the effect of its performance.
  • Flat, Aga rail or line dry naturally. Hug Rugs can be tumble dried on a cool setting for 10 minutes to plush the pile ? this is optional.
  • Never place a Hug Rug on a damp floor.
  • Never place a Hug Rug in the tumble dryer on high heat setting for a long period of time.
  • As with any soft furnishings ? if left in direct sunlight the colour will fade.
  • Leaving a steam cleaner on the Hug Rug for too long may cause the backing to crumple.

Our mats are designed not to leave marks, however a combination of cleaning products, sunlight & heat may effect and/or cause discolouration to certain types of flooring when covered. We would advise you to please lift the mat frequently to allow the floor under the mat to be cleaned and aired. Our backing is a natural based product free, from vinyl & PVC. For specialist flooring please check with the manufacturer before using any rubber backed mats.

Why Hug Rug Are Fabulous

At Hug At Home we have always looked for the best way of preventing harmful waste, and as part of that we have invested in technology that allows us to add renewable rubber and post industrial plastics into the rubber backing of our Hug Rugs - saving over 100 tonnes of plastic per year going to landfill and damaging our environment! We are very proud of the fact that our textile mills in Yorkshire are ZERO waste to landfill!

From the sourcing of our materials, the development of entirely new manufacturing processes, using cleaner/greener sources of electricity made by hydro pumps, windmill farms and solar, through to our products disposal and recycling, we try to considered everything to ensure we have as light an environmental footprint as possible.
