2-Second Tip: Outdoor Rugs

Outdoor rugs are made of plastic for a reason: And that reason is MOLD.

Do not use a natural fiber rug outdoors.

This is what three days’ worth of rain quickly made of this natural fiber rug (World Market, 2006).

Do yourself a favor and if you’re going to decorate a patio, either paint a design straight on the concrete or purchase an outdoor rug. If you do so, you may spare yourself the loss of an old rug friend.
