As adorable as kids can be, they can also be a little accident-prone. So although you may have visions of a highly aesthetic catalogue-worthy playroom, maintaining one is an entirely different story — unless, of course, you consider a rug that’s proven to be easy to clean.

There are tons of kid-perfect rugs that are stain-resistant or even entirely machine-washable at storefronts like Amazon and Etsy. And just because they’re easy to care for doesn’t mean they’re not incredibly stylish and adorable look at.

Keep browsing to see some of our favorites in the collection below, which includes customizable options, educational rugs and soft foam runners. Every rug included can handle being thrown in the washing machine.

A dinosaurs-in-space machine-washable rug
Ruggable changed the game when it comes to large-scale rugs that previously would only be spot-cleaned. On its website, you can choose from a variety of size, style and pile options, but each rug is actually two pieces: a lightweight machine-washable rug cover that is both stain- and water-resistant, and a slightly soft non-slip pad it attaches to so you don’t have to worry about it sliding around, even in high-traffic areas (you can also choose a cushioned pad). This rug features a cute space theme and comes in tons of size options, starting at 2 by 3 feet and all the way up to 9 by 12 feet.
An Iris Apfel jungle rug
Another Ruggable option with the same fitted machine-washable cover system is this jungle-themed design inspired by fashion icon Iris Apfel and her love of animal figurines.
