I use a lot of scrubs and body washes that have essential oils as the main ingredients, so my tub has a tendency to get pretty slippery. Plus, I’m not exactly known for being graceful… so the combination of those things leads me to fall a lot in the shower!
I don’t have any idea what took me so long to buy a bath mat, but I’m really glad I got this one. First of all, it’s significantly bigger than the others that I looked at when I was shopping around. At 16″x28″, this covers the majority of the bottom of my tub, so I don’t have to worry about stepping off of the mat and slipping.
I also love that the bottom of the mat is covered in suction cups, so that the whole mat is stuck to the tub instead of just the corners or a few spots. That significantly reduces the likelihood that the mat will slip or slide- I know my mat hasn’t moved since I placed it, and the bottom of my tub is lightly textured.
Another thing that was really important for me was to find a mat that was latex-free, because my husband is allergic, and this one is totally latex, PVC, and BPA-free silicone. As a huge plus, this bath mat is machine washable too! How awesome is that?
I’m really happy with this purchase, and even happier that I haven’t fallen once since I put this in the tub. If you would like to add one of these mats to your tub, you can find it on Amazon.
