I've owned this rug for 3 years now and it still looks nearly new! As you can imagine, I've washed/dried it several times without an issue. I wash on cold and throw it in with my towels. Be careful about throwing it in with dark colors because it WILL soak in the bled colors. I dry it on the gentle cycle and usually take it out before it's completely dry and just go ahead and throw it on the floor. It does NOT have a non-skid backing, so investing in a non-skid floor mat underneath would be great. It's actually decent in size. We have a smaller bathroom for our kids and it fits perfectly. It's not going to cover the entire floor as it's a shaped rug. If you're debating on buying this, GO FOR IT!
though it was cute in appearance and seemed to be of similar quality to the ones with Disney cartoon characters and such, this bath mat literally fell apart. first it was just a few strings around the edge, but soon after the entire mat became to peel back into layers. I will never buy one of these again.
