Rated 2 out of 5 by Akoltash Can't Get Clean!
This mat certainly is a water hog. However, it's so good at collecting things I cannot get it clean. I've vacuumed, scrubbed, and hosed it off several times and I just can't get it clean. I spent so much money on this rug and 2 smaller ones I wish I could use them, but they are just sitting in my garage. I wish I would have returned them earlier, but I've had them for probably 3 years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by thequiltygardener Hold up well
I purchased two of these mats. One in blue and one in green and they hold up very well . No fading after about three years and they clean up with soap and water very nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by run26pt2 functional and attractive
I didn't know about "water hog" rugs until I found them on the LL Bean website. I read all the reviews which were mostly '5-star' and decided to purchase them. I bought two in the large rectangle size. They are attractive and functional. It doesn't matter what you deal with: snow, mud, leaves, grass, etc., these mats grab it all! I have one on my porch in front of my door and one in my mudroom entry way just as you come in. Double protection! They vacuum well. I have 2 dogs and 1 cat. The cat likes to sharpen her claws on the rugs. The rugs have been peed and pooped on by my dogs. No problem. I just apply liquid detergent then hose them off and they're 'good as new'. The rugs are indestructible. I am buying a third one - in the Crescent shape to go in front of my LR stairs that go up to the 2nd floor. I highly recommend these rugs!

Purchased two of the waterhog mats one outdoor mat for my entry doorway and one for the interior of that same door - I selected the brown color - just wanted to let others know that the brown color pictured is not the brown that you are going to receive - the mat is much lighter brown - was disappointed with the color but I am going to keep the mats anyway to see how well they wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DLMA227 Love this outdoor mat
Even when it rains very hard this mat does not become overloaded with this rain and I can step on it without having anything splash back.
Try it................you will love it!

This mat is very attractive however the pattern grooves are such that it is almost impossible to get the dirt/lint out. I have a high suction Dyson vacuum and it cannot pull the dirt from this mat. I am considering getting rid of because of the difficulty in cleaning it.

I have this rug in the large size by my front door. It has been outside for 10 years under a covered entrance. I also have the large crescent rug, for 11 years, and it is by the back door, outdoors in all kinds of weather. I have had other outdoor rugs, not LLBean, and after a season, they fell apart. I would recommend these LLBean rugs to all.

Just ordered my second mat, I found the first to be everything it promised to be. I tell my feral cat Buddy to scratch away, it does the mat no harm. Nor does the sun fade it, it is still looks like new and it is three years old.

Just purchased our second waterhog outdoor mat to use at a second entry door, this time in brown. The first one, green, which we've had in place at the front door for at least six years works very well to clean feet before entry and looks as good now as the day we laid it down. Love the leaf pattern. We've only had to sweep these with a broom to clean them off. Worth every penny and then some of the reasonable price for this quality.

The mat catches leaves, twigs, clots of mud, grass clippings, potting soil, etc., and gets most of what comes in the door before it gets to my bare floor. I take it outside to spray off, and the sun dries it in about 30 minutes (depending on the day). It is a real work-saver when you have a house full of dogs. My little cat loves to sharpen her claws on it, and has done so practically daily since we got the mat. There is no evidence of this habit on the mat. I don't believe there is a better product of it's type on the market.
