And when you think something is going to be a bad idea it probably is. For a couple of months I wanted to wash the denim rug. But I have heard people having problems washing rag quilts in front load washing machines. At least I waited until all the household laundry was done before I did it. The good news is I do know where the secondary filter is on my front load washer. What a mess I created. I found 85 cents, the missing button to a blazer and a handful of denim threads in the filter. Not to mention another handful of threads I pick out from inside the washer. Another handful in the lint trap in the dryer and another handful picked off the three towels I washed with it.
Overall just a bad idea. But the denium rug is looking awesome, so much softer than before. I would love to wash it again someday.
