How often should bath mats be washed?
According to Expert Home Tips, you should wash them at least once a week at a high temperature to keep them free of germs and bacteria. The main reason that bath mats get so dirty and unhygienic is that they don’t get the opportunity to completely dry out in between people using the bath or shower.
How do you clean a bath mat?
Fill your bathtub with warm water. Put on rubber gloves and add two cups of chlorine bleach to the bathwater. Scrub your bathmat with a clean bristly brush. When you have scrubbed the entire mat (top and bottom), drain the water from the tub, and give both the tub and the mat a good rinse.
Can you put a bath mat in the dryer?
After scrubbing, wash the mat and leave it outside to dry, or hang it on a clothesline. You could also wash these bath mats outdoors with a garden hose, or put them in the washer with some thick towels. These bath mats can not be put in the dryer, even on low heat.
How do you wash memory foam bath mats?
Place the rug in the washing machine with its right side exposed. Set the machine on a delicate cycle, add regular laundry soap or detergent, and fill the machine with preferably cool water, never hot, according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Because the memory foam is synthetic material, do not dry clean the rug.
