Replacement for Rubberized Mat for Tub?

January 20, 2022

Does anyone know of any good items to use in place of those bulky rubber mats for the tub that attracts mold and everything to it? I find they're not that comfortable under the feet and are cumbersome.


Any do-it-yourself rubber bath mat ideas so you don't slip in the tub? Also, any other ideas to replace bath stickers and decals?

You should hang up the mat to dry. I had one for years and it never got moldy. It is important to have something non-slip on the bottom of the tub to avoid falls

At my parents' home, they use Non-Slip Safety Shower Adhesive Appliques.

I use a small towel in my bath tub, works great to stand on ! I wipe the wall and tub down and ring it out and hang it up .

Ugh -- I agree with your assessment! I'm wondering whether a cut of the thin rubbery material that goes under rugs -- or rubbery shelf liner (maybe they're actually the same thing) -- might work. Certainly easier to hang up and dry.
