Floor mats and other like floor covering articles have exhibited general problems arising from frequent washings and harsh environments of use. First, the energy required to wash and dry a typical floor mat is significant due to the overall mass of the mats. This overall mass is made up of the mass of the ***mat pile***, the mass of the carrier fabric into which the ***mat pile*** is tufted, and most significantly, the mass of the rubber backing sheet which is integrated to the carrier fabric under heat and pressure. http://www.freepatentsonline.com/6296919.html
