    The rug was very thin and was not the color described as aqua. It was green.

    This was a good rug for my hall way location. I have two dogs so I needed a rug that would hold up to their use.

    If you need outdoor floor covering, it will suffice. To be the indoor carpet, outdoors, that you dreamed of it is not. Too plastic , too basic. Not what you want to look at when te stories get boring. Needs refinement

    Dragonfly Rug - 6/10/2012

    The rug arrived in such a tightly rolled up fashion that it has taken us quite some time to get it to lie flat.

    perfect rug - 6/8/2012
    By: from Los Angeles CA

    We've been looking for a very thin rug to place at our kitchen back door, which leads onto back steps and the garden. It needed to be thin enough that the door could open over it, and most are not. We also wanted it to be sturdy and attractive. We took a gamble on the Dragonfly Rug and won. It fulfills all our requirements and is very cute. We have the terra cotta color, which matches our floor tiles. We recommend it highly.

    Shipping/packaging observation - 6/5/2012
    By: from Dallas, TX

    The dragonfly rug is great. My request is that in preparing it for shipping you roll it on a cardboard tube (like wrap comes on). My rug arrived rolled on itself and bore ridges from being flattened in transport. It also would help if you rolled it with front face showing - then it won't curl up at the ends. I resolved this by inverting a table onto it and 'pressing' it flat overnight. love the rug - please package it better. Thanks.

    Not what I expected from Orvis - 6/5/2012
    By: from South Central Iowa

    This is really a poor quality, light weight runner rug ~ no where near worth the asking price. I would never recommend it to a friend.,

    Perfect for our porch - 5/16/2012
    By: from Roanoke, VA

    The colors displayed in the catalog are not very accurate. However, I am pleased with the one I selected. I haven't had it long enough to see how durable it will be, but I expect it will hold up well. If you plan to use it indoors, it may be a little rough on bare feet. I like it well enough and think the value for the money is reasonable so I am considering buying some more of them from Orvis.

    Color is exactly as displayed. Does a great job picking up the dirt as you enter.

General Tips Spot Removal Water Trapper Mats Indoor/Outdoor Rugs

General cleaning tips for wool and cotton hooked, braided or woven rugs

The safest, most effective cleaning of any rug should be done by a professional service using a steam extraction method. How often you steam-clean a rug depends on the traffic the rug receives. Vacuum regularly and clean spills immediately by blotting with a clean cloth or sponge.

  • Reversible rugs (especially braided rugs) should be flipped often and cleaned when both sides are dirty.
  • Latex-backed rugs (this includes most hand-hooked rugs) cannot be cleaned with any petroleum-based solvents. These solvents break down the latex backing, causing the pile to become loose and the rug to lose its shape.
  • Smaller cotton rugs can be washed in a commercial-size washing machine (commercial machines offer a bigger tub to agitate and thoroughly rinse, plus are designed to handle the weight of a water-soaked rug during the spin cycle.)
  • Wool area rugs can be sent out to a professional dry cleaner for regular cleaning. It’s a good idea to call your dry cleaner and ask if they are equipped to handle rugs before bringing them in.

Spot removal

Removal of spots and spills is the most important way you can maintain your carpets and rugs. Responding quickly when anything is dropped or spilled can save the day...and your carpet!

Should a spill occur...

  • Immediately blot up liquids (do not rub!) with white towels or absorbent cloths; use the end of a knife or a spoon to scrape up solids.
  • Use the instruction chart below to treat the spot using the most effective treatment.
  • Always apply spot remover to a clean towel or cloth, never directly on the spot. Using small quantities at a time, work inwards from the edge of the spill to prevent it from spreading. Do not rub—this causes the spot to spread and can destroy or distort the pile. Do not soak the carpet with solution.
  • Continue to blot with clean towels until as dry as possible.

Find the source of the spot in the first column and use the corresponding methods for spot removal. If you have doubts about the spot, or how to remove it, contact a professional carpet cleaner.

Orvis Water Trapper Mats

Our Water Trapper mats work hard to keep your home, car, and garage clean and dry. Whether you use a Water Trapper under your dog's feeding station or outside on the porch, the tough, durable polypropylene fibers protect your floors and carpets by keeping dirt at the door.

To keep your Water Trapper looking fresh, simply hose it off to clean and hang it to dry in a ventilated area. It can be scrubbed with detergent if necessary and rinsed off to remove stuck-on mud, dirt, and pet food. If your Water Trapper is used in an uncovered outdoor area and is subject to heavy rain or morning dew, the mat should be allowed to dry both front and back to avoid any discoloration of the surface below.

Orvis Easy-Care AnySeason™ Indoor/Outdoor Rugs

Our newest collection of easy-care rugs effortlessly take on whatever your household dishes out, staying clean and good-looking in high-traffic areas, during mud season, and throughout a whole summer spent outdoors. Made of sturdy yet soft polypropylene, our high-performance rugs are:

  • Machine washable in smaller sizes
  • Quick drying
  • Mold- and mildew-resistant, they can be scrubbed with detergent and hosed clean
  • Able to be cleaned with bleach for difficult spills and stains

A few tips to make your indoor/outdoor rug last even longer.

  • If your rug is in an uncovered outdoor area and is subject to heavy rain or morning dew, it should be allowed to dry both front and back. Unchecked dampness will eventually cause the fiber to begin breaking down.
  • Surface smudges and grime should be sponged clean regularly using a mild detergent and warm water. Rinse with cold water and allow to dry thoroughly both front and back.
  • While these rugs are UV-treated to resist fading, nothing is completely immune to the sun’s rays. When not is use for extended periods, roll the dry rug and keep in a covered shaded area.
