Win a Gorgeous Washable Children’s Rug from Lorena Canals

Print Friendly

Washable Kids RugI was absolutely gutted when I was approached by Lorena Canals Rugs based in Spain to review one of their children’s rugs as they are absolutely gorgeous and they’re washable!!!  Yes, you heard me right.  There is no need to take it to the cleaners.

Unfortunately, after careful measuring I worked out that there was no way it would fit in my daughter’s room.  This isn’t because the rugs are too big it’s just my daughter’s room is too small.  The rugs measure 120cm x 160cm.

So I thought, I’d give one of you the opportunity to win one, the Topos Crema pictured above.  Simply enter using the Rafflecopter form below.  The full terms and conditions are at the bottom of the form.  UK residents only aged 18+.  Competition Closes on the 27th Feb 2013

This competition is listed on Loquax, Prize Finder and Competition Hunter

Good luck!

The worst thing my son ever threw on my carpet was tomato ketchup. He always refused to hold the lid whilst shaking it, the lid was loose and my carpet was splattered red.

Ohh, where do I start. My twins and little girl are only 16 months apart so like triplets, at age 3 they were all covered in sudocrem, including the rug, the furniture, the walls and we still have the pictures to prove it. Then there’s the bedroom rug, my lovely boys stuck their foot in in and walked across landing to my room, suffice to say we also had to replace landing carpet. I only popped to loo. They are now a bit older and rug destruction thankfully has become a thing of the past.

my son loved playing with his cooking stuff, pots pans, pretend food…..one day i didn’t realize he had helped him self to some of my eggs from the kitchen.
slimy messy egg mixed with broken crunched up shell, mashed into a shaggy rug….it took forever to clean, it made me feel sick trying to scrape up the slimy egg….later i asked harry what he was doing with the eggs and why had he taken them, he told me he was trying to cook me egg and soldiers for a dippy egg. i couldn’t stay angry with him for that! he just wanted to make me some lunch!!

My son was 3 years old at the time and some how he had managed to get a hold of my box of nail vanishes , open the clasp thingy, open the bottle of nail vanish AND spill it all over my newly laminated bedroom floor in the space of five about three minutes while I was brushing my teeth. I could have CRIED lol. That’s kind though. It still baffles me to this day how he even managed to open the box, it was locked via the clasp and even I (still do) had trouble opening it! :-/

But she’s only 5 and have very bad control and eye co-ordination that it seems more purple nail vanish went on the carpet than her nails. It’s still there but I have covered it up with her alphabet jigsaw puzzle for the time being. I have a feeling she will spill something else on it if I replace my carpet

My daughter has a bit of an issue with clothes & as quick as I put them on her, she is stripping them back off … This goes for her nappy, too! So, I quite often have to deal with ‘puddles’ on my rugs. Hence, why I bought a Vax cleaner … But, the rug sounds child friendly.

the contents on my make up bag emptied and ground in- before i was due to go no a rare night out. My initial up set that i had yet to use it! I had to salvage what i could then deal with the mess

well not so much spilled as spread carefully over..a whole large pot of sudocrem. we have a photo of it, she was covered and so was the rug. She looked so funny and she’d obviously had a lot of fun ‘painting’! The rug however had had its day there was nothing I could do with it, I was so grateful it wasn’t an entire carpet!

It’s gross but poop & sick at the same time. My poor son caught a tummy bug from nursery and was sick in his bed so he got out and cried for me, as I went in he was sick again and the other end at the same time….nightmare scrubbing :-( luckily it was only a 24hr bug 2 days later he’s bouncing around like nothing ever was wrong!

Bleach, it did a fab job of removing a stain and the colour. My eldest thought he was being helpful by bringing in the bottle after coffee split on the carpet, he opened it and it slipped out of his hand. That part of the carpet put the rest of it to shame it was so clean and white.
