Outdoor Mats That Don’t Stain Concrete

outdoor mats that don't stain concrete

To find outdoor mats that don’t stain concrete is not going to be a walk in the park. Especially because most outdoor mats are made with a rubber backing to make them non-slip. 

Which means, mats that will not run and stain your patio or front door must have a rubber free backing. In addition, avoid natural fiber doormats such as coir because when they get rained on the dye stains concrete too.

There are several options you can consider available in the market today. You can go for the layered doormat look popular during the fall. It consists of a doormat layered on top of a plaid or striped cotton outdoor rug.

Alternatively, one could settle for rope doormats made from synthetic fibers which do not rot, grow mold, mildew or stain concrete. You can also go for doormats with backing such as polyvinyl chloride or PVC/vinyl. Read on to select what would work best for you.
