As above. They are big and I need then to stop the wear of a very thin rental carpet.

I beat mine on a washing line with a tennis racquet. It's amazing what comes out.

Well, I'd stop shagging on them for a start. grin

Glad I'm not the only one with a smutty mind who totally misread that! What with the penis beaker thing, I was thinking "so people have special sex rugs now?"

And I almost spluttered coffee all over my phone when I read Savoy's post!

Awomb I was just coming to say put a towel down first? grin

Fortunately my garden is not overlooked.

OMG! No, Think 70s very thick rug.

Could I wash them in the bath?

I have also draped mine over the playhouse roof and given it a thorough hosing. However I live in a hot country so I can rely on the sun to dry it.

You couldn't get it out of the bath once it's wet.

DON'T wash them.

Beat them when hung over a line (or give them a very very thorough hoovering) and then use a Vax type carpet cleaner on them.
