can i put a rubber back bath rug in the dryer?

i dont have a hair dryer... also is there aa way i can make it look less used? its so worn out... not dirty old but the carpet on it looks and feels like a high traffic area on a regular home carpet that would be in a bedroom or hallway. thanks! =)

  • I have a bath mat from bed bath and beyond(not a fancy brand), it has a rubber backing and I wash and dry it everytime a clean the bathroom. Hasn't melted yet.

  • I don't think so....the ones that I have all said on the packages not to put them in the dryer, so when I wash them I just hang them to dry. There is a chance the rubber backing will melt. I don't know how you can make it look less used.

  • I don't put my rubber backed rugs in the dryer. I had one melt on me! YUK! I hang it over the shower curtain bar and let it air dry.

  • I have put my rubber backed mats in the dryer before...they didn't melt, but over time, the rubber backing got cracked and worn from the dryer and they started leaving rubber pieces all over.

  • You can but it dries out the rubber so one day you will pick it up and find rubber flakes all over your floor and in your washer and dryer. I air dry mine outside. They dry quickly
