For Chenille and Outdoor Rugs:
No. We do not recommend using fabric softener when washing the Chenille Rug Cover as it may flatten the rug's texture.
For Plush and Shag Rugs:
No. The Plush and Shag Rug Covers do not require the use of fabric softener to maintain their crimped texture.
Tip: If your vacuum has a rotating bristle attachment that is gentle enough for use on our Rug Covers, vacuuming can often help re-fluff the Plush texture after wash.
