I found that white Elmers glue works great! I would recommend using a putty knife and make a decent layer of this glue onto the back of the rug. Once it's dry it's pretty sturdy! If you want to be a little extremely you could use glue called AAT-1132 from a brand called Bond Products that comes out great as well but costs a lot more. It is not necessary to have though.
Can you wash your rugs? / Can you wash your tufted rug in a washer?
I wouldn't recommend washing your rugs because the yarn may make a huge mess. It's just not built for that. I have found that using a "Dog Comb Blade" to brush rugs works wonders! It cleans off any excess dirt and lint from your rugs and keeps it looking nice.
