I USE BLEACH ON THIS RUG. ALL. THE. TIME.
Excellent, Excellent rug. No other words for it. You see all these expensive fancy looking brand name (although safavieh is brand name-it is an exception) rugs that are hundreds if you want a larger size. They are beautiful but I personally wanted a rug that was SOFT, CUSHIONED, COMFTY and looked close to spectacular.It was cheap, affordable, and the quality doesnt match the price.
With rugs.... pick two: comfty, decently priced, beautiful. Well......This rug has all 3. Quality is the other bonus that most rugs dont have.
No, I am not just talking about high luscious pile and thick-cushioned feel under your feet, both of which it has. I am specifically talking how much damage (READ: poop, vomit, curry, spaghetti stains, nail polish, the works of having boy toddlers under 3) a rug can take.
I USE BLEACH ON THIS RUG ALL.THE.TIME.
As a note, I didnt pour straight up bleach, but you shouldnt do that anyway for anything. Always dilute with water. I took a picture of the clorox bottle I use. It works like a charm and lifts everything up.
For people who dont have kids or dogs, you might not care. But for those of us who do, the worst thing about buying such an elegant rug, is the maintenance.
Is it easy to care for? Will it be easy to clean and get rid of dust, allergens and other food particles embedded in the fibers? Will the high pile stay somewhat high and super soft on your feet after a long day at work? Will it prevent stain and not discolored and dingy?
I bought this rug for one reason specifically: i have toddlers and my youngest at the time was learning to crawl. My kneecaps were practically rubbing off from crawling so much on hardwood.
So, my crawling/rolling toddler kept falling back on the hardwood and I decided to get a rug. Normal rugs werent soft enough. This Safavieh rug cushioned all his falls and he expected to cry after hitting his head on the rug when falling. Instead he was quiet, his eyes wide open. Shocked that a rug could make him feel nothing from his falls.
I am not surprised. The rug has a super high pile and the fibers are THICK. No joke. It is more comfortable than my couch. I took pictures of the pile after having it for an entire year almost.
I had a lovely ikea rug with a pretty high pile. Over time however it has become so thin. The fibers have worn out. The safavieh rugs fibers are still super thick. The reason? Maybe its better fiber quality but it seems to be that the rug has MORE fibers (yarn) throughout. This is why it is so PLUSH and THICK. Each 5 inches of the rug has more fibers than other "shag" rugs. Normally, a rug with more fibers would cost more. But this rug is surprisingly decently priced. Almost feels like it is too good to be true.
My said wonderful toddler managed to also get through my nail polish and dump an entire bottle on the rug. I dumped acetone frantically on the rug, risking it would be forever ruined. The laquer came off and nobody, even up close, can tell anything was spilled.
The second best thing as I said was how I bleach and bleach and I have dumped almost every chemical you can think of accidentally and purposely on this shag. This rug IS IN PERFECT CONDITION as when I first got it. Normally rugs wear out after a while. Not this rug.
NOT A SINGLE STAIN. (Look at pictures)
This is what you call quality.
I know searching for rugs is hard because they tend to be expensive and very crucial due to allergies, kids, pets, quality and they arent easy to switch out since they affect your entire rooms decor. But-- this rug is worth it. If you're on the fence about it....... Just order it. The quality is beyond spectacular. Take my word for it.

This rug looks and feels like a premium rug
This rug looks and feels like a premium rug. It's incredibly soft, and is indeed very thick. I'm not sure about the 2in pile, but that doesn't seem to take away from it at all. It came wrapped in plastic inside a cardboard box, so it was fully protected from dirt and debris during the delivery process. I had to reverse-roll one end of the rug to get it to lay completely flat, but aside from that I really have no complaints. This rug is extremely easy to fluff back up, even after furniture has been sitting on it. Definitely worth it!

Love the carpet, the color is perfect for what we wanted. It's plush, looks high quality, and unrolled without any issues. Highly recommend!

So happy with this rug!
It came totally wrapped in plastic, safe from the rain thank goodness because it was left at our front door. It's very heavy, wonderfully plush! The weave is not too tight and not too floppy. It also has some woven beige throughout the white to create some texture and prevent it from being so stark of a white.

I absolutely love this rug.
I love this rug and I would buy it again! We bought this for our livingroom. We have dark hardwood floors, little ones, and I play with them a lot in the floor. I needed something soft on my knees and this is perfect. I feel like the color is true to the picture. The rug is lush, soft, we walk/play on it every day, & it still holds its structure. Great buy!

Amazing rug! Reviews don't lie!
After eyeing this rug for far too long, I finally purchased it. Ordered it on a Wednesday, and surprisingly it came only two days later! It opened up and didn't need any time to flatten out, it was perfect immediately. No odor. Very soft on your bare feet. I would like to eventually make it even softer and get a rug pad to place underneath. Great thickness, beautiful color (gray/ivory). The 8x10 was exactly what we needed for under our king sized bed. I'll be ordering one for my nursery and one for my daughters room soon! Order this rug, you won't be disappointed! I'm so in love. ~One very happy wife~

Plush and luxurious! Feels like a more expensive rug
I had been looking for a neutral tone shag rug for about a year but could not bring myself to pay more than $400 for a 9x12 rug. I tracked the price of this rug on BTA-MALL for nearly a year and swooped in to purchase it when the price went down to $270. The rug was delivered promptly and was wrapped neatly in plastic. The Gray and Ivory rug is darker than pictured. I was expecting it to be more of a tan or taupe color but it has more brown undertones in addition to hints of cream and gray. Neverless, it is still neutral enough to coordinate with any decor. The pile of the rug is about 1 inch high and it is extremely comfortable underfoot. We are not using a rug pad and do not foresee needing one. This is the first time we bought a rug without seeing it first but we are very pleased with the product. I feel we managed to get an amazing deal at an amazing price.

Love my navy rug
I absolutely love my rug!!! Not only is the color perfect but it is so plush!! No weird smell upon opening and it flattened out within an hour or two! Our couch took a week to arrive so we thankfully had the rug to lay on while we watched tv and I'm not even kidding it was soooo comfortable! The thick pile is awesome!! Great buy, great price, great product!!!
