Question
Hello: I have an off white rubber backed shag bathroom mat that is pretty dirty.I was going to take it to the cleaners,but I am writing to ask if I can clean it with my pressure washer in the backyard.The washer came with a bottle of detergent.Should I use that with the washer if you recommend washing the mat this way? Thanks.

Answer
Sorry to be so long answering. EMAIL issues with new version of Windows.

I usually do this kind of thing with a garden hose. Be careful, unless it is an expensive one, the pressure my separate the pieces of the mat. WATER should not be an issue at all.
