This looks much better in person. It's really soft and it's very flexible. It has a rubber or rubber type back so it doesn't slide around. I ordered because I got 2 rugs for a reasonable price, the smaller strip is kind of shiny, it's absorbent and dries quickly. I'm sure it will wash easily. I was worried it might be too bulky for the washer but I don't think it will be any problem. It didn't stink when I opened the bag. I would recommend this to anyone.
