Does anyone know a better way of cleaning them other than scrubbing on your hands and knees? Can they go in the dishwasher? I'm very lazy and I'm looking for a method which involves little effort.

I work as a cleaner. In other people's homes I just hoover then mop over these. Or simply seperate and wash individually in a basin, then hang out to dry.

At our toddler group we just rub them over with cheap anti bac wipes it's surprising how well they come up

I used to put ours in the washing machine.

dishwasher or washing machine (depending on the size)

I used flat mop, one with a microfiber cloth over it. Used to do the mats first then the rest of the laminate floor.

There was also more than one occasion I stuck them all out on the lawn and hosed them off. Just remember to turn them over once the tops are dry. Few things more annoying than going to fetch them all in just before bed and realising they are still wet on one side.

I used a sponge & spray and rinsed them of in the shower, or soak them in the bath.
