  • why would you? If you want to clean the machine just add a cup of white vinegar and run a cycle, and when the machine is not in use leave the lid open so it can dry. If you mean to clean bathrooms rugs, rugs aren't a "surface" and Mr. Clean shouldn't be used to clean them

  • Why do you want your rugs to smell like toxic chemicals and be washed on them? Do you think the fragrance is natural? Every cleaner, shampoo, body wash, etc is made from toxic chemicals that are proven to cause lung irritations, skin irritations, even cancer, yet we continue to use them thinking they equal clean. They don't. Clean your house with water, vinegar and baking soda. If you want your rugs to smell nice buy an essential oil, mix it in water and spray!

  • It shouldn't damage the rugs, or the machine.

  • Mr. Clean has high acid chemicals that eat away at fibers. Read the label. Would you want that in your washer?
