• “I bought a fairly large and nice-looking outdoor rug over the summer. I almost packed it away with the outdoor furniture, but something made me hang on to it in our garage. I had a lot of guests for Thanksgiving, and I put it in the entryway, where people were coming in from a muddy outside. After everyone went home, up it came, and it was rinsed off good as new. I will bring it back whenever I expect more people than my mudroom can handle.” – K.B. in New Hampshire
