Seagrass Rugs vs. Dogs and Kids - your opinion welcomed!

I would love everyone's opinion. You see, I am considering seagrass rugs for several rooms of our house.  I  am not sure how seagrass holds up to stains od spills or "piddles".  I have four small dogs and two kids so, of course, you get the occasional accident.

My only experience I have with natural fibers with kids is Sisal and it was a disaster.  I had specified a Sisal as a wall-to-wall in my twin boy's baby room and between the spit up and a dehumidifier tipping over, the carpet was a stained mess in less than a year.  I had it ripped out and something low maintenance installed.

I truly welcome opinions.  What is you opinion of Seagrass?  Can it withstand stains?  If so, what is the secret to cleaning stains?

Au Revoir for now.

Taking some time for summer and gratitude

Just a quick post to keep in touch.  I have been to Ireland and now doing the kid's camp visits.  I will be back to regular posting very soon.  This time out has given me time to reflect on all the greatness in my life.  I have a great family and a wonderful life.  Can't get any better than that!

Au Revoir for now!
