EDITOR’S NOTE: Updated for the fall of 2023.

Area rugs can help pull a room together, making your space look complete. They also can help make hard tile, wood, vinyl, or laminate floors less cold and more comfortable to walk or sit on. Area rugs aren’t as easy to clean as harder floor surfaces, though. They require vacuuming or even periodic shampooing. That’s where a washable area rug — if you can find one — can be useful.

If you wait long enough, Aldi is likely to sell exactly what you need. This week, Aldi is selling washable area rugs.

What We Know:

Huntington Home 5' x 7' Washable Area Rug

The 2022 rugs.

The Huntington Home 5′ x 7′ Washable Area Rug (Product Code: 706055 in June of 2022; Product Code: 709514 in September of 2023) is an Aldi Find, so it’s only in stores for a short time. Each store gets one shipment, and after that sells out, it’s gone unless Aldi decides to bring it back at some later point. Aldi does not offer online ordering for products that aren’t in stock at your local store.

If you miss out on purchasing this rug, Aldi tends to sell different kinds of area rugs a few times a year, including an even larger shag rug earlier in 2022 and an indoor/outdoor area rug in early June of 2022.

We’ve seen Aldi sell this washable rug in June of 2022, January of 2023, and September of 2023 all for the same price of $49.99. That’s less than most similarly sized area rugs with similar patterns on Amazon.

Here’s more information on the rug, according to Aldi:

  • Foldable and washable
  • Assorted designs
  • Pet and family friendly
  • Skid resistant, no rug pad required
  • Stain resistant
  • Fade resistant
  • Soft texture
  • 100% polyester
  • OEKO-TEX certified

In addition, Aldi sometimes sells a washable runner rug.

Aldi has not given any indication that this washable area rug comes with a warranty.

What We Don’t Know:

We don’t own this rug, so we don’t know how good it is or well it holds up to actual washing. We write open threads so readers can talk about their experiences with Aldi products.

  1. I opted to not purchase this rug because of how thin it was. Ruggables are comparable in thickness but come with the pad to attach them too. Thin is necessary for washing, but too thin and it doesn’t serve all purposes.
    I like that these match thr runners from last week but I wish they would sell them during the same week. I also wish there were bigger sizes.

  2. These are AMAZING! I have before and after picture (washed vs unwashed) that I would love to share. I have two Great Danes and a yorkie, I use the runner version as a mat for their food bowls. The one I have is white and blue and between drool, occasional regurgitation and South Carolina red clay-this thing came almost completely clean on one wash cycle. LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS thing!!! It does NOT skid even with the excitement of two 100lb Dane pups!

  3. I purchased one of these rugs with the intention of using it on my patio since it is washable. However, I rolled it out in my bedroom and it looks BEAUTIFUL. I will definitely be on the lookout for one next year too. Did I mention I got it on sale for $12.99

  4. I purchased this rug in June, really liked it, but am not able to vacuum crumbs off – the vacuum cleaner tries to grab the carpet, sucks up the carpet. Tried the settings for low pile, and for hard floor, and then even the medium pile. I tried using a stiff brush but the lint/crumbs stick to the fibers. Its a 5*7 rug so I’d like to get the crumbs and lint off some other way than the washer. Any tips

    • I would hang in on a clothes line and ” beat it” the old fashioned way. I realize not everyone has a clothes line or rug beater.. but it works great.

  5. I purchased a med size rug, 5 X 7 from Aldi’s about 2 yrs ago, and
    love it, but the problem is I wanted two of them and they only had the one in a seafoam green. I’ve checked back several times, and they have many others, but no match. How can I purchase another for the other side of the room???? Need Seafoam green/ 5×7 in size

    • Aldi often does not sell the same rug pattern or color twice, so unfortunately, I’m not sure how easy it will be for you to find a match.
