If you’ve been to a home and garden store recently, you’ve probably seen a lot of doormats made from some kind of brown fiber. This fiber is called coir—pronounced “COY-er”—and it comes from the husks of coconuts.

Coir makes wonderful natural-fiber doormats, but it does take a little TLC to keep your mat looking its best. Check out these helpful care instructions for coir doormats to keep your porch looking pristine.

Keep Away From Moisture

Coir doormats will remain in top condition for a long time if you keep them away from moisture. This may seem counterintuitive for a doormat, but not everyone has a front door covered by an overhang.

When your coir doormat soaks up water, it will start to break down, as natural things do. When water is absorbed, the mat can also end up transferring some color to your porch. Therefore, the best thing to do is bring your doormat inside if there’s going to be a rainstorm.

Keep Out of Direct Sunlight

Another reason coir doormats work best in covered doorways is because of the sun. Hours and hours of sunlight exposure can make the coir fibers brittle, which leads to shedding. Any designs on your mat will also lose their vibrance with enough sunlight exposure.

Sweep Away Debris

For a long-lasting doormat, don’t let debris like leaves and grass cuttings build up around your coir doormat. Not only does this messy, but it can help harbor pests and moisture. Any time you notice debris piling up on your porch, just give it a little sweep to keep things tidy and prevent that build-up from damaging your doormat.

We hope you find these care instructions for coir doormats helpful as you decorate your patio for the season.
