I have four KayleeAndTepid rugs. I like 3 of the 4. The 3 - 5x7 ones have only been washed 3 or so times. They still look great. The 8x10 rug I have to wash more frequently. I do it per the instructions, but it has shrunk significantly and curls really bad. It is in my living room so toddler trips on the edges walking around. I have also finally had to cut down the mat underneath because it looked so bad. I would recommend if not planning to wash often. If needing to wash often, just think of this as like a one year fix and then you will need to buy again. Kaylee, any solutions to help stop the curling?
