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:
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.
